Hi All, I am a new user of a Mac Mini. I really like the Mini, but have found high bitrate HD clips (30+ MBits tend to drop frames (on the order of 1 -2 / minute). I am using Plex and playing mkv files or TS files. When I play the same clips under Windows (via Bootcamp) it plays without any dropped frames (with PowerDVD Ultra 9 / Media Center). So I have 2 questions.... Is there any optimizations I should do on the Mac Mini to make the files play better? And is there any way that I can get the remote IR receiver on the Mac Mini to play with a media center remote (Vista Media Center / Bootcamp). The apple one works, but it only can control volume / play / pause and skip forward / back when you are playing a video. I need to get the navigation up down left right to work when at a Video menu (DVD / BD mode) and navigation when I am selecting what video file to play. I have loads of HD space so I would perfer not to transcode all of my video as I have seen that take 15-20 hours per movie. Thanks in advance. I am sorry if I posted in the wrong area. I did many searches and I could not find a thread, but sometimes it could be sitting under my nose. Signed Windows User who desparately wants to switch to a Mac Mini.
