So my introductory period on Comcast has expired. My relatively reasonable bill of $55/mo has ballooned to $100. I have realized that I watch such a small portion of the channels available. All of this has lead me into doing some research on alternatives for my media consumption. I have narrowed my choices down to an old ATV, a Mac Mini or another solution like the Boxee Box or Roku. I have an Xbox 360 that I use for NetFlix Streaming. My HD TV is a 720p/1080i set, so no need to obsess over 1080p content. I have a few questions for the experts who have cut the cord with Cable. 1. My research has shown that at one time Boxee was very sluggish on TV, is this still the case? 2. The $149.00 price for the old TV is very tempting. I have some media on iTunes and some ripped DVD's that would work. Is the old TV a good deal for Boxee use (Hulu Content) and my iTunes/ripped DVD content or am I just pixxing my money away? 3. Would I be better off picking up an older Mac Mini, I could run Plex, Boxee, etc. with higher performance? If so, how old of a Mac Mini is usable as an HTPC? 4. Is there another solution that I am missing? I would like to make this decision before my next billing cycle starts on the 26th. Thank you to everyone for your help!
