OK, I was to set up a media centre in my living room (louge for some of us!). As far as I can see it I have two possibilities: Number 1: I currently have a PowerMac G4 1.42GHz DP. The advantages of this machine are; I already own it, i.e. free! Large HD, if I add an SATA card I could get very large storage in this device. I have a TV card built in that comes with a good remote I can control alot of apps with. The disadvantages are that the video card may not connect to my TV using the Apple connector but I have bought one to try out. It is very noisy and hot (the temperature of the room has definity increased since I put this machine in the living room), its bloody big! Number 2: Mac mini core solo. Advantages, very small footprint, FrontRow in comparison to MediaCentral etc... Graphics card will work with TV. Disadvantages; no PCI slot for TV card so I would need another USB device to connect and record TV. HD not as expandable so size will increase. It costs more than using my PowerMac. I will be connecting to a bog standard CRT TV via the SCART input. Does anyone have any suggestions as to which setup would be best. I am not saying I have £400 to spare on a Mac mini but in the long run I could get the money together but only if it would be the idea solution. Any advice would be great, thanks.
