If there are any Mac Mini HTPC owners out there, I'd love to hear from you and what you've learned, any suggestions. I'm a bit bummed right now with my Mini HTPC. I recently sold my jailbroken Apple TV because I decided to use my Mac Mini as a HTPC (just wasnt using it as a computer, use my laptop all the time). That and the Apple TV was starting to show its age, had a hard time streaming some files, could never stream any HD streams off of Icefilms. Certain types of files on the local HD (plugged into the router) would always quit. If the file had any type of error in it, it would quit. Video and audio would often un-synch. Random re-booting. Still, it was a wonderful little box. But I thought to myself, Well, if Im going to sell one or the other, sell the ATV. People pay a good $200 for them, or more. Its getting old and slow. The Mini is way more powerful. Can handle any type of local file. What could go wrong? And then I discovered. There just isnt a user friendly way to control the mini. The benefit of the ATV was that the OS was just for watching TV and the few apps on it. Streamlined. I had figured that with a full computer, there must be tons of choices on how to play Netflix and Hulu and HBO and NHL and Amazon in the same friendly way as the ATV. Nope. And I was disheartened. Knowing that my wife was going to hate having to learn a whole new way to watch TV. What a bummer. I started looking for solutions. Sure, XBMC is the same as on the ATV. And Plex is great for the add-ons it has, and for local files. But nothing was there for the usual suspects, Netflix and Hulu and HBO and NHL and Amazon. How about Fluid? Makes apps out of webpages. Nope, it just basically bookmarks a webpage. Nobody has made desktop versions of these apps? Grrr. Plex doesnt have any add ons for these. Neither does XBMC. Grrrr. I even started hoping I could find an emulator to run either iOS or the Apple TV iOS on the Mini. That would have been awesome, but nnnnnnope. So when I came to accept that my easy user interface was gone, and Im handcuffed to the web pages instead, I tried to find a way to at least navigate the Mini. And there were a few options, but kinda clunky. And I have a bluetooth keyboard and trackpad. Seems like overkill and a bit of a big remote. The one gem I found was Apptui. This makes the whole thing seem like it may be possible. I would still love to see a desktop versions of pretty much everything on the Apple TV, or an iOS ATVOS emulator for the Mac. However, until then, Im happy to have found Apptui. Still finding other issues. As I'm watching Hulu right now, the video seems a bit jumpy. Not quite smooth. I would love to hear your experiences and suggestions.
