What about younity? I use it all the time as an alternative to Plex Pass, and it's 1000x easier to setup and use. Oh, and did I mention, it's free?

How is this different to Front Row?

reply

Well, both have the same purpose: to organize music/videos into a good-looking interface for home theaters. However, Front Row is very basic. Plex has far more features, and simply looks better, too. I won't get into specifics, but I would definitely recommend using Plex over Front Row.

No thanks
