Issues on my list to find solutions for:
- initWithApp_() doesn't bring Boxee to the front
- launchApp() doesn't return control to Front Row when Boxee exits
- Something about how the project is structured (or about how FrontPython is structured) means that a FrontPython-based frappliance seems to prevent PyeTV (another FrontPython-derived project) from loading. I want them both to show up.
Though the mailing list for the FrontPython project has extremely low traffic, the folks there are quite responsive. I do note that there's a compiled Front Row plugin that the patchstick folks use on AppleTV for launching Boxee. It doesn't seem to work with OS X's Front Row - or at least not load.
