Removing unused buttons from the Frontrow menu
Warning: Seems like this might not be working for everyone.
Seems that you can only reduce the screen to a minimum of 7 items... Wraith 14:36, 1 May 2007 (CEST)
Also seems like you have to rename to .old, when removing the folders or renaming them otherwise it doesn't work. Thaylok 15:13, 1 May 2007 (CEST)
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.
