I am hoping for a little help if possible. I have bought a new Mini primarily for use with Plex on my plasma. I'd now like to use my older Mini that it has replaced as my bedroom player. How could I set it up to stream from all the content I have in the living room?

Turn on file sharing from the Mini in the living room (System Preferences > Sharing > Check File sharing > Add folder(s) you would like to share

Brilliant, thanks very much, I didn't think it would be that simple

This will be even easier when the new version of Plex comes out. (http://elan.plexapp.com/2010/05/19/a-sneak-peek-at-alexandria/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+osxbmc+%28Plex%29)
