I have never bothered playing with Front row before, because I did not see a need when I could quickly choose my files using the mouse and keyboard. After our new Mac Mini purchase, our existing mini has been relegated to media duty connected to our HD TV. Basically, Front Row is my Apple TV with more flexibility. I realize that others have discovered this already, but I love how Front Row found our NAS, made attractive menus out of the file lists and provide thumbnails of the movies, music and TV shows. I love it!
