Fix Front Row 'movie trailer not responding' errors
Authored by: regulus on Mar 22, '06 01:01:15PM

Ha!!! That's great. It seems you were as excited as I was at this solution. To finally rid ourselves of that pesky problem in a fairly simple fashion... awesome. Just remember to hack the front row executable again after the next update from Apple.

Re: your not using the cron and script stuff...
I like the whole process automated so I don't have to think about it any more. I actually set cron up to run the script 4 times a day because I have no idea when Apple might update the current.xml file. I also made the script into and applescript application and put it in my start-up items so any time I reboot my computer it is automatically updated with the latest version.

Regulus, would you mind sending me that applescript? I'm a scripting newbie, and must admit I'd rather learn from finished work.

My email address is curtis@helpfulgeek.ca

Cheers,

Curtis

It's just a one line statement since I already have the script, so we just need to call the script with the "do shell script" command. Just copy the following into script editor, save it as an application as run only, then add it to your login items.
------------------------------------------
do shell script "/usr/local/bin/frontrow.sh"
------------------------------------------

That's it! Note: change the path so that it is the path where your script resides. Keep it in quotes or it won't work.
