  • Front Row with touchscreen?

    I've searched the forum for a bit but can't find a direct answer - those of you using touch screens, do they work Front Row directly or do you have to use the remote?

    You either have to use a keyboard, the AppleRemote, or do a search for FrontRowRemote which will let you use the touch screen to control it.

      there was this program that allowed to use front row with a touch screen. However it dosnt work in leopard. Its called FRRemote, or something like that.

      It worked quite well, but sometimes it would snag.
      Cant code cause I dont know how, but give me the paint bucket and my eraser and have at you!

          Ahh, thanks, I was afraid of that...

          I guess I'll try that software and consider pulling the IR and mounting it in the dash somewhere.

            a couple of people have moved the IR off of the mini. Shouldnt be that hard.

              Check out Remote Buddy here:

              Using this you can control the mac mini using a wiiremote via bluetooth!

              edit: If you hack in a wii sensor bar to your screen/dash (or 2 IR emitters either side of the screen) it will also act as a mouse/pointer. Cool!
