Along with the iMac i plan to buy after the 1st of the year for my office I am also looking into getting a mini for my living room. The use for the mini will be primarily a media center. What I am trying to do is find a solution that will allow me to use the HD tuner in the TV and utilize 3rd party software on the mini to record as a DVR. I have been looking into Elgato's eyetv250 but dont think this will allow me to use the HD tuner in the TV as it wants a direct input from coax/antenna connection. The set up now is I have basic cable and have the coax running into the TV then use the TV tuner to capture over-the-air HD plus some cable HD. Is there any way to get the mini in between this so that I can capture and record? Anyone?
