with leopard it seems front row uses the mbp as the default display when connected to an external monitor. With tiger it used the external which is what i wanted.. is there somewhere to change the setting to have front row play on the external by default?

In Tiger you just had to go to the System Preferences>>Displays and in the main window for Display settings click the Arrangement tab and drag the little white bar (representing the top tool bar) to the top of the top of the little display that you want to be the main.

Maybe it's similar in Leopard.
