If i use frontrow, dasher will overlap the dashboard over it after the specified inactivity timeout..

any plans for an update that would disable dasher if frontrow is activated? this sure would suck if i want to use frontrow for movie watching..

We've found that Dasher should only activate Dashboard while Front Row is playing music, and not while playing movies or slideshows. Rather than hardwiring Dasher to not activate Dashboard when Front Row is in the foreground, we're thinking about ways to allow users to specify a list of applications for Dasher to check against. We might include Front Row as part of the default list.

Have you made any progress here? Is there something I can access via apple script or terminal to set up a list of apps to block dasher from starting dashboard? Currently I have to manually change preferences every time I watch tv shows or movies. Of course I usually forget and have to get up from the couch/bed and run over to the computer 15 mins in to a show to change things...
