TV Row and OSX Lion

This summer a new cat breed will arrive to our beloved Macintosh. As it looks now Front Row will Rest In Peace. So with the current knowledge the prospect of TV Row will be grim. It was fun while it lasted and well it served the need of many. With this all said I want to thank everyone who send me translation of TV Row and everyone who made a grateful donation. So for now TV Row development is seized.

I got a little addiction called Farmville... In the products section of this site you can find a little nifty tool who can help you decide what crop to grow to get the most profit.

From this side of the planet I wish you a happy new year.

TV Row and Snow Leopard retail

posted Sep 1, 2009, 1:45 PM by Hendricus Robijn

The current version of TV Row (2.0.1) does still work on Snow Leopard as mentioned before. Due to no addition of extra features, the development of TV Row is halted. The only addition that is on hold for the moment is an Italian translation.

TV Row and Snow Leopard

Today I got my chance to test TV Row on Snow Leopard (10a380) and it works like a gem. For those who are thinking of installing the WWDC version (10a380), make a backup of your disk. Personally I recomend Carbon Copy Cloner. When you install Snow Leopard over your precious 10.5 install it may screw up your permissions and maybe more. Atleast I wasn't able to get it bootable without a kernel panic, when I installed it over an existing system. A clean install works like a charm.

So to wrap things up TV Row is Snow Leopard ready.

XBMC Launcher for Mac

posted Apr 9, 2009, 3:57 PM by Hendricus Robijn   [ updated Apr 9, 2009, 4:02 PM ]

I am resurrecting the old version of TV Row to work with XBMC. XBMC Launcher will launch XBMC on your second display. The old version of TV Row was build on cscreen. Which means that XBMC Launcher (mac) will switch your primary display to your second screen. After you quit XBMC, XBMC Launcher will switch your primary display back to your main screen.

Because of the limits of cscreen, XBMC Launcher will not have any bells or whistles. Just a simple Applescript that does it's job.

Currently it is in beta testing. So stay posted for more news ;)

TV Row 2.0.1 in development

posted Jan 1, 2009, 12:23 PM by Hendricus Robijn   [ updated Jan 4, 2009, 11:17 AM ]

After releasing TV Row 2.0.0 many people grabbed a copy of it. I am glad to see this little application is useful to many people. At first I took on developing TV Row 2 as a challenge to see how XCode worked (Applescript Studio), as a n00b in coding I never touched XCode and it's tools. I am pushing it one step further in the next release ;) TV Row 2.0.0 is only available in English.

The next release will have localizations in:
  • French (by yann ricquebourg)
  • Dutch (by me)
  • English (by me)
  • Swedish (by Max Persson)
  • Spanish (by Anonymous)
Other changes:
  • TV Row 2.0.1 will also have a minor bug fix regarding the HD/SD setting
  • Minor GUI fixes related to localization
  • Front Row can be started by TV Row after setting the preferences
  • No need for an installer anymore. Unix executable is bundled inside the Application
