I have an HD TV located near my Apple Extreme router. My TV has component, SCART and VGA inputs available. I can purchase iTunes files from iTMS USA. I have a 1TB drive that can be stored almost anywhere (off the Apple Extreme, off my iMac [not ideal], or anywhere else). I would like to rip my DVD collection. Record off of satellite (not so important). Watch video gathered online from Apple and other sources. I want the whole thing to be easy to use. What is the best solution? TV? Mini? Next gen Mini? X-Box? Something else? I think a lot of people would like this question debated and hopefully answered by those who have technical knowledge. While there are already a lot of threads, I think we needed a thread that really set out to setup a versatile, ease-to-use and quality system for upgrading our media centres, and I haven't seen any really definitive answers yet. Experts?
