I'm thinking of investing in buying a Mac Mini to: rip DVD's, convert things in VisualHub, record TV shows with EyeTV etc. However, the whole aim is to completely control it remotely from my MacBook Pro. Whether it be on the home network, or on the internet. The idea is so I can download a TV show that I've missed, convert it in VisualHub, and have it ready for my Apple TV without me being there. I'm getting sick of the amount of heat and noise generated by my MacBook Pro for converting things, and this way I can set the Mac Mini to record TV shows when I'm out using my MacBook Pro. What's the best way of doing all of this? I'm a MobileMe subscriber, so Back To My Mac will be available.
