I currently have rather complicated setup that consists of digital TV-tuner/PVR and DVD-player (along with television and the like). I would like to simplify all that, and replace it with a computer. And Mac would fit my livingroom just fine . Now, there are few things that the system would have to do: - Scheduling, recording and playing back DVB-broadcasts. - Playing back DVD's - Playing back music - Playing back photos - Playing back movies (not DVD's,but DivX and the like) Now, looking at the list we can see that DVD's, music and photos can be handled by Front Row. But how about DivX and the like? Then we have the PVR-functionality and DVB-broadcasts. Those can be handled by EyeTV, right? Photos, DivX and music would most likely reside on a network-server, so that the HD on the computer itself could be dedicated to PVR-functions. Although I would occasionally archive recorded TV-shows to the server as well, or maybe burn them to DVD's. How well would Mac (propably Mac Mini) together with EyeTV work in such a setup? Does anyone here have any experience with this kind of setup? Related to this: Since this setup would be in a livingroom, and while it IS a computer, it should be as "un-computer"-like as possible. So there would not be a keyboard and mouse around to operate the system with. Is it possible to actually use the system without a keyboard and mouse? Alternatively, there MIGHT be a small form-factor keyboard with embedded mouse (pointing stick for example). Any suggestions there?
