Well, I got my mid 10'mini server today. I also have a MacBook pro 3,1. As well as a apple tv(first version). I only have a downloaded iTunes library chock full of fairplay drm. My tv is 50" plasma pioneer kuro and I have an okyno receiver. I connected the mini up to the tv through the receiver at first, audio through a TOS cable with mini jack adapter. Well output through the receiver was choppy in fullscreen. Not sure why... As my apple tv does just fine through the receiver..... Anyways... I ended up using the receiver only for the TOS audio cable and hooking the mini to the TV directly..... Full screen no problem then.. (what gives....) Anyways, I set up the mini as my iTunes server on a networked synology raid setup. Removed the hdmi and tos cable... So now the mini is headless, keyboardless and mouseless. But, I have screen sharing setup on the mini and use either my MacBook pro or hippo remote to work on it. So, well, umm, I am now watching my iTunes content through my apple tv which runs off of my mini(streaming from) which pulls the movies from my NAS. Whew... So not sure how to get the mini working better through the receiver. Studdering sucks....(video only...) sound is just fine. Front row SUXs. Nothing else will work for drm crap that I know of, guess I'll just keep streaming from the apple tv from the mini.... If I keep with drm protected stuff from apple iTunes store I might get a new apple tv for the second tv and sync from the mini as well. Guess I'll figure out handbreak and mkv soon as well. But just add my diverted DVDs to my iTunes lib.... Least they will be drm free.
