What's the best setup for me?
I want to be able to watch dvds/blurays and also buy/rent stuff from itunes, so what's the best setup?
Option 1: Apple TV
This is probably the cheapest option, but could there be bandwith problems streaming 1080p over wifi?
Also, I would have to rip my dvds/blurays to a format compatible with itunes. How much of a quality loss will that be and will the ripped movies stream without problems via wifi?
Bought stuff from itunes shouldn't be a problem though, right?
Option 2: MacMini & external HD and bluray drive
More expensive, but could be connected to TV via HDMI so no wifi issues.
I can rip my dvds/blurays to any format and I wouldn't be depending on itunes.
Also, if I buy a Tv show from itunes which is DRM protected (or isn't there any drm?) does it mean I cannot copy the files and use them in plex or any other media center software?
Would you agree that the only downside of option 2 is the price?
