    How do you keep front row playing in the backround? I got an apple remote and want to use the macbook while the music is playing. thanks!

    Front row just accesses iTunes. If you start music in front row, then leave front row, the music should continue to play in iTunes.

    I thought that Leopard changed this. I think that now if you exit Front Row, everything stops playing.

    I don't think you can... but why not just use iTunes?

    I hate the way Front Row no longer controls iTunes like it did in Tiger. That was the best thing about FR!

    Silly

    I really don't know why they removed this function in Leopard. FR in tiger worked both ways iTunes <--> FR . Now FR just turns your machine into a giant iPod.

    Well if you're using a laptop I know that if you connect it to an external monitor you can have the laptop screen displaying FR and the monitor displaying something else, or vice versa. Actually, now that I think about it, that would probably work for desktops too.

    Tiger's Front Row was the best, everybody wanted it and loved it.

    Leopard's Front Row............
