    Hi,

    Running Tiger on my 2.0 MB.

    I was wondering, when I open Frontrow and have a look at the movies, all the movies are in there double.

    I suspect this is because FrontRow detects movies from the iTunes library AND from the 'Movies' folder.
    Any way to disable this?

    Or is this fixed in Front Row 2 in Leopard? (which i'll be getting soon)

    yeh when you add movies to iTunes it copies them to the iTunes library by default. remove your duplicated Movies from iTunes and then re add them with "Copy files to iTunes Music folder…" unticked in the Advanced preferences.

    All my movies are added to the Library WITHOUT being copied. I already unchecked that and I'm still having the same problem.

    front row compiles the items from the specified folders. (movies, pictures etc.)

    so you speculated correctly. just delete the files from the original location.
