    Something that's been bothering me for a while...

    You can take an tv and turn it into mac, by imaging a "real" os onto it. Shouldn't you be able to do the opposite for a mac mini? Maybe partition the HD (so you can choose which side you boot to, or even create alias of the files themselves) and image the new Take 2 hd onto a mini?

    Reason I ask is that i have had a mini connected to my TV for quite a long time now (intel with the IR port). I keep thinking an tv would be nice, but i already have everything I need out of the mini. It would just be rather sweet to have the interface. Front row works well, all in all, but the options and sheer design of the tv software is gorgeous.

    So that all being said, shouldn't there be a way to do it? I've google it to death and can't find anything that talks about this direction. Closest thing I could find was a script hack to make front row easy to access (as the remote isn't easy enough as is) and make it look "pretty".

    Any suggestions?
