    Does anyone else have this problem? Every time that I exit out of Front Row the itunes program is on. There is no window open but I have to go down to the dock and quit the application. Is this a normal part of itunes/frontrow? Is there anyway to turn this function off?

    As far as I know FR uses iTunes to play music which requires it to be open. Just like it uses iPhoto when you browse photos through FR. In either case it will open the required program which will still be open when you quit FR.

    But I do not use FR for iTunes, just for watching movies. When I close FR, iTunes is on but iPhoto/DVD player are not. Strange.

    I see. I don't have an explanation for that with my limited use of Front Row, it does seem odd mind you.

    That's because it opens movies from the Movie folder and iTunes, so iTunes has to open to be searched.
