Does anyone actually use it? From what I've seen, it isn't that great.
mostly because its external monitor support blows.
definitely not. Some people like Plex, but it is rather buggy IMO. And It can't even play a DVD
I used it all the time before the "upgrade" to the new Front Row.
Now, not so much.
it was a bit of a novelty for me.
I don't watch movies on my computer, so it was mostly for music, but now that I can control my library from my iPhone it's useless.
i'll use boxee instead
front row usually lacks the codecs i need
I never use it other then accidentally starting it up once in a blue moon.
every night. i use it to play a movie/TV show dvd as i go to sleep. I like it because I can control it easily using my phone which doesn't need line of sight like the remote.
i use it to watch movie trailers
its easier for me to just watch the stuff in vlc, or listen to music in itunes
I used to but now I just use "remote" on my iphone.
Sometimes if i feel like searching for my remote... otherwise i'll just fire up itunes or qt.
Definately liked the old version way better...
i like to use it when having it hooked up to my tv
On my tv I love it, but but I am having problems streaming from my desktop to my laptop which is plugged into my tv.
If it had secondary monitor support I would use it on my desktop a lot more.
I use it on my Mini a lot hooked up to my HDTV. Listening to movies, watching TV shows I get off iTunes, that kinda stuff.
