I currently have a Linux server that I use for storage and movie playback but I'm sick of the hassle so I'm switching over to a mac. My planned setup is Have: Sony 52" Bravia HDTV 1080p Onkyo HT-S6100 7.1 Sound System Going to Purchase: Mac Mini DVI->HDMI to receiver for HD Digital Audio out to receiver for digital audio Drobo with 4x1TB disks for storage. Maybe wireless keyboard but I will probably use VPN most of the time. Questions: Mac Mini will work fine for playback correct? I've read some post and it seems to do the trick. Any preference on which cables to get, Apple sells them for $20/each but online they are like $4 each. The macmini is only FW-400 and the Drobo is FW800, will I notice a difference? Those of you that have setups like this do you use a keyboard/mouse? Thanks.
