Is it possible to put the newest ATV OS on the Mac Mini? The new OS is awesome, but the atv is soo limited in what it can do then compared to the mini. Thank you, just bought my first mac=) hoping to get this to work.

I have never heard of it being done, that doesn't mean it can't be. Can you not use Front Row on your Mac Mini?

Not sure if the imaging thing works.

You can replace FrontRow with AppleTV, but you need to be running Tiger not Leopard or Snow Leopard:

Sounds like it will work, but won't you just be limiting your Mini, not adding to it? Just get Plex (http://www.plexapp.com/). It's brilliant.

There's ATV4Mac, but I'm not sure if it's still under development.
