    Is there any way - AppleScript perhaps - to allow either auto-switching of the main display, or enabling 'Mirror Displays', when Front Row starts?

    Normally I have my MBP setup in extended desktop for when I connect my external monitor or connect to my TV (DVI->HDMI adaptor) for watching BBC iPlayer etc., however I want FR to run on the external monitor/TV if one is detected.

    It seems to me that is how FR is (or should be) intended to be used - on a big screen for boring family and friends with your holiday photos/videos etc.

    Thanks stridemat - that's just what I need :)

    I did search here and on Apple Discussions, but didn't go back that far (2007) as I was looking for Leopard/SL - although the Apple Support Doc link to in the thread is from Oct last year.
