    Ever since Leopard was released Front Row has been a mess. Slow and buggy to the point of being unusable. My main issue, aside from the slow navigation, is the way it sorts TV Shows.

    -In Tiger it used to sort them by Show, then by season.
    -In Leopard it showed each season as an individual show (very annoying and confusing).
    -With the NEW update it displays each TV Show as a group but it puts all the episodes from that series (all seasons) in that directory. Again, very annoying.

    I've gave up on Front Row back when Leopard was released and will not be returning with this release. Unfortunately it just doesn't match how great it used to be in the Tiger days.

    I hate this too but if you connect to a shared library it actually shows them the correct way. Shows/Seasons

    How about the ability to display album art from shared libraries. Any chance that works now?

    Yeah. I would say development for Front Row is pretty much dead in favor of the Apple TV.

    Nope, doesn't work yet. I think it is safe to assume at this point that Apple knows about this issue and wants to keep it this way just to push users towards an AppleTV. :(
