So frontrow is gone, what do you use for itunes in home theater?

So I use plex for anything that isn't iTunes DRM, but what do you guys use for home theater with itunes purchased stuff on a tv-connected mac computer? I have a mac mini hooked up to my living room computer and plex is great for it but as far as I know I can't play itunes DRM stuff with it, so I'm stuck still having a bluetooth keyboard and trackpad out for when I want to navigate my iTunes library.

In our home theater, we use an Apple TV for iTunes, Netflix and Hulu Plus and an HTPC for the rest. I got the Apple TV mainly because I wanted an easy way to play music in our theater by using our iPhones/iPad (or a MacBook if I'm working down there) as the interface. I've always hated using a 10' UI for selecting a song to play.

I then found myself using the Apple TV for Netflix and Hulu Plus since I prefer Apple TV's interface to the various HTPC alternatives. The HTPC is mainly there just to play movies from my library.
