Fix Front Row 'movie trailer not responding' errors
Authored by: HelpfulGeek on Mar 31, '06 11:16:10AM

Thanks for the great tip regulus!

I also didn't want to limit my movies to 320, but rather keep them at 640 until those times when my bandwidth is limited enough to warrant downsizing them....So I took the last line of Regulus' code and turned it into a stand alone script to downsize the movies if necessary.

Here's the problem: It seems Front Row caches a copy of the current.xml file somewhere. The only way I can convince Front Row to recognize the new smaller movie files is to log out and log back in. I imagine there's an easier way (perhaps just restarting the Front Row app from terminal?), but I figured I'd seek some input from those smarter than I.

I'm glad you like it. I also have stopped getting the smaller trailers because the 640 version looks great on my TV. I just commented the perl command out in my script so it doesn't run. I figure if I need to go back to the smaller ones I can just uncomment it. I hadn't realized the updating stuff you mentioned, I'll have to look into that. I guess the file doesn't change that often so it gets cached somehow. I imagine if the file did change often frontrow wouldn't cache it.

Good luck and post if you figure a way around the caching.
