and making it the center of my entertainment cetner downstairs....however, i wold need eyeTV correct? and i would also need a tv (or computer monitor) that has dvi input......i dont need a huge TV or monitor as the one i have there now is a regular 23 (diagonal) inch CRT i believe....the speakers are analog, so id probably have to get a cheap converter cable thing from radio shack....so what else would i be needing? a dvi to dvi cable? id like to keep this under 1000, but i understand it might get a little higher......any ideas, comments, suggestions, problems etc are extremely appreciated. (i probably add like a wireless keyboard and mouse, and get the wireless card for it...what specs should i get on the mac mini, as itd probably only be used for this purpose, and maybe internet browsing/instant messanging....i dont really know how much memory this type of setup would require...i already have a spare 256 from my powerbook (dont know if its the same type)...and id probably get an external hard drive to record the video to)....thanks alot!
