I am patiently waiting for the new Mac Mini to replace my first generation AppleTV to be my media server. I have all my music (from CD's in AIF format), music videos, and concerts in iTunes and on my aTV Flash'ed AppleTV. While the AppleTV is slow, the interface is quite nice for my use. I also have the Remote App on my iPad, but I don't always have it around. I am troubled with the fact that Front Row is no longer available with Lion. I know there are a few substitutes out there like Plex and XMBC, but I really don't know if any of these is really a good replacement. I was wondering if it would be worth it to dump the Lion OS and install Snow Leopard to get back Front Row. I wouldn't be using this system for anything else, except for the occasional YouTube video, and maybe internet radio. What would be my best path? Install Snow Leopard, or go with Plex or XMBC? Thanks!
