Hi All, HTPC Newbie alert so hope this makes sense Am in the process of trying to set up a HTPC/Music Server and was originally going to do it with a Mini but now was wondering if the same job can be done with a MBA (1.4 or 1.6 both with 4gig ram) The Mac will be hooked up to a 40"HD LED TV (via HDMI) for video files and music files will be via an external DA converter output to 2Ch audio. I do have a couple of constraints, for example streaming is not an option so was going to play the media via an external Hd hooked up to the Mac. I also will be using it to record FTA TV broadcasts via an Elgato eyeTV hybrid. Benefits of the MBA is I can do away with the need for a KB and mouse and at the same time use the MBA for work travel instead of using my MBP. I can also connect to HDMI via an adaptor. Will the MBA be a good choice for this or would you still recommend the Mini? I haven't made the decision one way or the other so am fully flexible. I admit I am a compete novice when it comes to the whole HTPC arena so any advice. suggestions or input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
