If you have a Mac Mini, a TV with a VGA or HDMI input and a good collection of data CDs and DVDs with DivX 😉 or xVid movies inside, this is your trick.
You can skip the gray text part because it does not work, in the end, in the black text you can see how to do the same but that it works. I want to leave this part gray because in theory it is the same and I still have to investigate why it fails.
I first tried it through the terminal like this it didn't work:
Create a soft link (ln -s) in the Movies folder. In theory it would be enough to type the following in the Terminal (Look for Terminal in SpotLight)
ln -s / Volumes "All Mac"
Then we copy the created link in the movies folder. It has not worked.
The other way to do it (This is the way it works):
We enable the view of hidden files in Finder with Blind or by typing:
write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles TRUE
We can see within our system disk a folder called «Volumes»
We press the right button or Control + Click - Create Aliases
We move that Alias to the Movies folder.
Rename "Volumes Alias" to "All Mac" or whatever name you like.
Now you go to FrontRow with the Apple Remote control, you go to movies / Movies folder and there you will find an item called "All Mac" that will allow you to browse all the discs that have been mounted on the system, including the CDs or DVDs that is currently on the tray.
Note: If you have not used Blind or another easy program to show the hidden ones and you want to hide them again, type:
write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles FALSE
Now I can only investigate a trick to eject data CDs and DVDs with the Mac's controller.
