Every time I try to add netflix feed Frontrow crashes.

It might have something to do with 10.7 and having the hacked version of FrontRow.

Any feedback?

Thanks

Nice little addition to FrontRow. I much prefer to use this with the simple interface of FrontRow than wade through the overdone interfaces in things like Boxee or Plex. Makes turning a MacMini into a TV MediaCenter much simpler. I only wish that editing things could also be done via keyboard vs only with the provided on screen keyboard.

This is an excellent plugin for Front Row, I would like it more if it could sync more easily with BBc iPlayer, but I do recommend this as I am getting to use front row more and more

This developer deserves your support, so whereas I may have given it 4 stars because of the difficulties with iPlayer I ma giving it 5 because at present it seems one of a kind.
