Media Server or Home Theatre PC

I am obviously new to this and still asking some uneducated questions

Are these the same thing ...?

what type of media server software do I need to run on a mac mini. i want to connect this with my direct tv if possible. maybe someone is already doing/done this. any info would be much appreciated.

they do serve very similar purposes but there are differences. for software, i've heard plex is good but i don't know if it acts as a server or not. anyways, it all depends on what you are looking to do.
