Mac Pro :: Removing Front Fan Assembly

Mar 25, 2008

I'm trying to remove the front fan assembly on the 2006 Mac Pro and it's giving me a hard time. The top part near the screw popped out easy but the bottom is stuck. I'm not sure how much force to use or in which direction to pull, straight out of the case (2) or upwards toward the hard drive bays (1)?

PowerPC :: Using Old G5 Case For New Computer Assembly?

Dec 24, 2008

I have an old-ass desktop PC that I wanted to upgrade (especially a gaming machine), so I was looking through a good case. However, I really LOVE the Mac Pro/ PowerMac G5 cases. The silver one with lots and lots of holes in front And then I saw some PowerMac G5's on sale at my local authorized mac reseller, for a very nice price. it got me thinking, I can buy that PM G5, take out the innings, put it to my old desk-top case to use at home (since it's dual 1.8ghz or something like that, which should be very powerful) and use that CASING of PowerMac to build my new computer. So here's my REAL question:

1. would that be a good idea?
2. Would all the components, ATX Motherboard, a nice graphic card that's big, (thinking of GTX 260 or ATI 4870) fit inside? And also, what's the built-in power supply at?

Front Row :: Make Front Row Work On Lion?

Feb 10, 2012

I upgraded to Lion and sadly, Front Row is not supported.  I somehow found the Front Row app in my systems folder and moved it to my Applications folder.  Front Row now shows up in my applications folder, as well as Launchpad.  However, when I go into Front Row, it does not recognize any of my media from iTunes.  I tried out this website: [URL]..blog/frontrowenablerforlion to no avail.  I was wondering if anyone has any suggestions as to how to make Front Row work in OS X Lion. 

Info:
iMac, Mac OS X (10.7.3), Front Row in Lion

MacBook Pro :: Removing Underside Of MBP 17 - Pop Sound When Removing On Cover Normal?

Jun 30, 2010

as an extension to my question regarding RAM utilization, I've decided to upgrade my RAM. I went through the process of removing the underside of my MBP. After taking the screws out and mentally marking which slot they came out of (some are of different size), I pulled the lid up at the black trim area (the "neck" of the display mount) as this was the easiest way to get a non-damaging grip on the metal underside -- read: I avoided using a screw driver on the lid. As I started to lift, I was surprised at the amount of force I needed to use in order to remove the lid; something near the center of the cover was still holding the lid to the underside of the body. In fact, the amount of force I needed to use made me pause to question if I missed an important step other than simply removing the screws. I decided to "go for it" and applied more pressure while pulling the lid up and away from the body and heard a "pop" noise.

Applications :: New Front End For Front Row In Lion

OS X :: Front Row On PPC?

Mar 24, 2010

I have a PowerBook G4 that I am making into a tablet. Now, I'll mostly be using this for class notes, homework, online textbooks, etc. However, I'll also do a fair bit of using it as a "media centre." It still has tiger, and I'd like to run front row. It's awesome on my uMBP, but the s-video out is much more convenient than the mini-display port on mbp. Will Leopard support front row on ppc, or is there another way?

Mac Mini :: C2D & Front Row

Oct 28, 2010

Im new to the forum for posting but have been around for a while soaking up info. I have a mac mini c2d 2ghz, ive had it for a few years now and its always behaved, its always on and is an excellent computer for what i need, its now running snow leopard. What i would like to do is turn it into a dedicated media centre as im looking at either a new mini or if i can stretch the wallet, an*i3 imac. Is there anyway i can boot directly into front row on my mini, without having to boot to the desktop, then to front row, i know its not so much bother to do the latter, just believe it would look better booting to front row or any other dedicated media centre software, All movies, pics and music will be stored on the minis hard drive or aliased to an external drive. I have searched in the forums and also with google, but cant find anything about the automatic booting into the media centre.

OS X :: Can't Front Row And ILife 09 On New Mac?

Jan 10, 2011

My sister has just bought an iMac last week and we've found she has iLife 09 installed on it, but shouldnt this be iLife 11? Also, she doesn't have broadband, just a 3G dongle connected to it, and she installed that fine, and everything works, except for watching trailers thru Front Row - it says shes not connected to the internet, even though she has internet access. We can screenshare (from my end at least) and we video chat, but she cant watch trailers?

Mac Pro :: Front Row / IR Remote

Feb 14, 2008

I'm about to drop $3000 on a Mac Pro, and it amazes me that the IR feature that is in their entry level Mac Mini and MacBooks is not in their top-of-the-line Workstations. Why has Apple not included an IR sensor for use with the Apple remote? Does Apple think that Pro uses won't want to use Front Row on their Pro machines? Besides, I can think of a ton of other uses for the remote other than just Front Row. And using the keyboard stinks. What are you guys doing? Has anyone come up with a solution? How can I use the Apple remote with a Mac Pro? Also, while we're at it, Apple killed the iSight camera a while ago. What are you to do if you have a Mac Pro with a Cinema Display?

OS X :: No Sound On Videos With Front Row?

Jan 12, 2006

i'm trying to play a video on front row, but I'm not getting any sound from it. It's an .avi file, and I know it works as it plays in VLC and on my Windows box fine. There were also a few files that had no sound and no picture and other with sound and no picture.

I know very little about video, but I'm guessing that I need some codecs to play them? It's not a big problem, but I like bing able to play them with out have to get out of bed

MacBook Pro :: Front Row With Lid Closed On MB

Nov 15, 2007

On every MB I've used since they first came out, you could hook the audio and video up, close the lid, and if it went into sleep mode, the Apple Remote would trigger a "wake up" for mediacenter purposes on a TV/stereo. My SR MB w/ 10.5 doesn't do it. As soon as the lid closes, it's asleep no matter how I toggle the view between screen and external port. Front Row doesn't wake it anymore. Anyone else having this problem? I wanted to find out before calling and asking.

Applications :: Turn Off Front Row?

Dec 3, 2007

I'm sure people find Front Row fantastic but I have no desire to use it. However, I keep accidentally pressing Apple-Esc at which point my computer freezes for a few seconds and then starts up in Front Row. It's a PAIN. Does anyone know how I can turn it off or change the shortcut to something more difficult to press accidentally?

OS X :: Turning Off Album Art In Front Row?

Dec 3, 2007

Does anyone know how to turn off the album artwork in Front Row? I have some songs I listen to that have some rather disturbing album art that I would prefer not looking at while I listen to the music. Also can you change the settings in Front Row so that the picture doesn't flip back and forth from one side of the screen to another when listening to music? The movement on the screen catches the eye and makes me look at the screen everytime it changes.

Applications :: Front Row Without IPhoto

Dec 27, 2007

Is there a way to view photos in Front Row without iPhoto especially for those don't have iLife? A mate of mine's MacBook is running Tiger - he wants to view his photos using Front Row but doesn't own iLife'08 so currently he is unable to view them. Is there a way round this? Our other mates have Media Center on their PCs which they can simply view their photos from any folder/location which is a bit of a drag as iPhoto is required to view your photos in Front Row on Macs - quite ridiculous. They'd have a field day once they know he cannot view his photos using a media viewer software which they can on their PCs! If there is no other way round this, I'll have to pass on my old copy of iLife'04 to him. Hope you all had a good Xmas by the way.

Mac Pro :: Use The Front Panel FW Port ?

Mar 3, 2008

If anybody here has a camcorder with a Firewire output, can you check something for me? I'm trying to use the front panel FW port on my new Mac Pro and it doesn't see my camcorder (Canon GL2) when I plug it in to capture footage. It IS seen if I plug the same FW cable into the port on the back of the ACD so that seems to rule out a bad FW cable. Also, the port seems to be working because it will see a FW CF cardreader when I insert it into the port. Any ideas? Is there a difference between the front and rear FW ports on the latest Mac Pro?

Mac Pro :: Front Fan Sounds Like It's Grinding / Any Way To Oil It?

Oct 30, 2009

One of the front fans on my early '08 Mac Pro sounds like it's grinding. When I first boot up the fans are whisper quiet as they should be, but give it a few minutes and there is a distinct grinding sound and I've narrowed it to the top fan on the front of the case. When the system is turned of, the fan whines to a stop. Is there any way to lubricate the fan to solve this? The access doesn't seem very easy, and I'd rather not have to mess with the case assembly. Or do I have to pay some kid at the apple store a hundred or so to do it?

Power Mac G5 :: Won't Go To Sleep & Front Fan Clicks

Oct 9, 2007

I am working on a friend's G5. It won't go to sleep. The monitor does, but not the CPU. I have upgraded the firmware, to 10.4.10, zapped the pram, corrected permissions. Just at a loss.

This computer worked fine at work where she had it originally, but when she shut it down and took it home, it has insomnia. Also, one of the front fans sounds like it is scraping or hitting something. It is not a loud noise and the fans still work, just annoying to her since it won't sleep. (Sounds like my one month old).

Information:
XServe, Mac Pro, G5, G4Powerbook
Mac OS X (10.4.10)

OS X :: Front Row System Shutdown / Sleep

Jun 12, 2006

I am new to macs just got my first intel dua 20" iMac 3 months back and added a macbook pro last week. My questions is...Is there a way to shutdown or turn off the computer (iMac) with the Front Row remote either in front row or while back at the desktop. I keep my iMac in my bedroom and it serves as the computer as well as the dvd player/pvr/satellite receiver and I would love to be able to watch the directv or dvd and turn off the system without getting out of bed using the remote. It seems that Apple could ad a little icon at the bottom of the front row screen with a shutdown option or if someone created a small app that ran in the background so when you came to the desktop you could use the remote to shutdown the system.
