FR STILL does not work after 10.5.3! Bah!
A LOT more info is needed.
What is the problem?
What have you tired to fix it?
PPC or Intel? Wireless or manual?
It was never supposed to work with the MacPro.
Aah. I see. That would be why then. It does work, but the theatrical trailer does not. It won't see the internet connection. It is a common problem apparently.
It does work on Mac Pro, although it didn't work on the early versions of MP. MP does not recognize Apple Remote (as far as I know, it's a common issue), but you can google to find a work-arounds.
Can i just ask, what would be considered an early version of Mac Pro? Mine was bought in March.
I've just looked for the info and found quite a lot of posts / articles about FR which did not work on MP, dated around 2006-2007 -- like this one:
I presume it should work on your machine, as it works on mine... But not via AR, as it lacks Ir.
PS -- theatrical trailer works as well.
Solved - I hard wired the machine to my modem and it works. Just did not work wirelessly.
I thought I read an Apple work around for FR where you plug both ends of an Ethernet cable into both of the Ethernet ports (I assume this is for people that are using wireless). This loop is supposed to fix the problem with FR not playing the Theatrical Trailers. I have not tried this yet.
You have this incorrect, the original MP shipped with 10.4. Which had front row disabled. You could enable it be simply making the machine think the mouse was the remote and then it would launch.
Anyone who installed 10.5 on ANY MP makes it work just fine. No tinkering needed.
Unless you want to install the previous Front Row version on 10.5, because you don't like new new interface.
At least, I think that's the reason why the old Front Row does not start.
Rubbish. Press Command-Esc. to launch it and navigate with the keyboard. It works fine on a Mac Pro. You can also add a USB IR receiver and use an Apple Remote.
Twisted Melon sells a nice one
You can also download Front Row from Apple if you think reinstalling it will fix your problem.
Are you trying to access movie trailers and other content like that?
Because 10.5.2 on a MacPro Quad 2.66 doesnt seem to work Wirelessly for me eithe rbut on a Powermac G5 1.8 Single works fine wired, so im wondering if its some sort of wireless bug with MP + FR?
a MacBookPro 2.2Ghz from mid-2007 works fine wirelessly.
