I found this item in a forum:

--------

QUOTE:

Here some Salling Clicker FrontRow Scripts. The only thing you have to do is to make a keypad.

--------

Best.

PS. I'd prefer it if someone wrote a "real" integrated script, to eliminate the "keypad" step indicated in the quote.

PS 2. It may ;-) also be the case that FrontRow just uses DVD Player and iTunes (in the background), so it should be possible to get player information from these apps, as per normal (in the default Salling Clicker scripts for DVD PLayer and iTunes)

I just tried, on a Powerbook 12" and O2 XDA IIs, works fine but there is not esc button, so once is playing there is not way to go back.

A "visual" Pad would be nice though, but I have no idea of making scripts...

Anyone? Please!

Make a new Basic Script and give it the name back or esc. Edit the script and replace the content with:
[code:1]try
tell application "SEC Helper" to simulate keyboard virtual keycode 53
return
on error
beep
end try[/code:1]

To get back to the desktop, you don't need an escape button. You just click 'activate front row' because when you click this, in effect your pressing F8, and when you click it a second time, you are clicking F8 again.

And as with Apple apps such as Dashboard etc.. you press to activate, press again to quit. And in Front Row's case F8 is the activation key.

Are all you guys running Front Row on the iMac? Becuase im running it on my 12" Powerbook... 8)
