I am wanting to get either an ATV or a Mini to be my central media entertainment hub for my living room. I was going to get the ATV, but I was thinking it might be too limited. For those that have an ATV, how does it compare Front Row? Is there really much of a reason to get the ATV over a Mini? I figured with the Mini I could do other things like surf the web, check email, play WoW or emulators, and offload all of my music and movies off of my iMac to save storage since it's primarily my workstation. I also thought it would be nice to rip my DVDs directly into it and play them locally instead of streaming everything. I've been using a PS3 and MediaLink for my media streaming for awhile and it has been good until Sony screwed up the H.264 streaming and show no signs of giving a crap about fixing it. Opinions? Edit: I don't know if this makes a difference or not, but it will be hooked up to a 42" 1080i HDTV which has HDMI, Component, and Composite inputs and a surround sound receiver with either optical or traditional audio inputs. Edit2: ...and I don't keep up with production like I used to. Any word on whether the Mini will be updated anytime soon?
