Removing unused buttons from the frontrow menu

If you don't sync your movies or TV episodes from itunes but only use
ATVFiles for video, you might want to try this:


First, remember to gain sudo rights:
"sudo bash" and then enter you password should do that.

Next, you need write access to the file system:
"mount -uw /" and you are good to go.


cd to the /System/Library/CoreServices/Finder.app/Content/PlugIns/
folder, and you can do the following:

Removing the "Movies" button:
"mv Movies.frappliance/ Movies.frappliance.old"

Removing the "TV Shows" button:
"mv TV.frappliance/ TV.frappliance.old"

Removing the "Podcasts" button:
"mv Podcasts.frappliance/ Podcasts.frappliance.old"


To apply the changes you need to restart finder.


Simple as that. Remember "mount -ur /" to make filesystem read only again.
