Looking to hook up something to play my mkv files on my plasma. If I get the Apple TV, I get component out and and save some $$$. I'm comfortable with the idea of hacking the AppleTV to run a full install of OS X, and I can play mkv with Perian on my current G5, so I'm thinking playback would be no problem. My question is, is it worth the extra $$$ to get the mac mini? I'm not looking to do anything besides play video, and I notice that the mini's graphics controller is some generic on-board Intel chip. Does anyone know if the AppleTV actually has better video output than the mini, or is it basically the same, if you install OS X on it?
