I have a mbp 2.4, two ATV's, and a time capsule. I have a 50" Bravia 1080p in the living room, and a 42" Hitachi 780p(I think) plasma in the bedroom. Both TV's have surround sound. I'm hoping that you guys will tell me that I can have a decent setup with what I have. I am thinking about getting a Mini, but I don't want to spend more money right now if I don't have to. Anyone have any ideas on how to make this work? I know I'll probably need another hard drive, but other than that, what do I need? I'm trying to cut out my cable bill, but I have to make sure my setup will work first. Also, my wife is a fan of some Bravo shows and VH-1. Of course, I'm trying to get this as close as possible to the setup that some of you have with the minis. I'm a noob, so don't flame me if some of this doesn't make sense. Please help! One other question, If I added a Mini, can I control the mini from my mbp?
