    FrontRow is probably one of my most used programs. I recently made the switch from an 2 yr old iMac to a new MBP that I connect to a monitor. I also networked my external HDs via Airport Extreme. Is there a way to get the videos on those HDs into FrontRow?

    Thanks in advance

    Yes. Mount the networked drive(s) and create an alias to them. Move the aliases into your Movies folder. You can access what's pointed to by the aliases by entering Movies -> Movies Folder in FR.

    Thanks for that info about the alias's but do you know any way to get front row to recognize more codecs like mkv and ogm
