My parents bought a Sony Bravia HDTV last week. They need to buy a DVD player that has better output than S-Video! So my initial inclination is to buy them a Mac mini so they can watch DVDs, use the TV as a giant monitor for getting online, etc. My questions are this: The TV has a PC connection on the back. I hooked up a MacBook Pro to it and it doesn't look as clear as I think it should at the HDTV resolution! And older PowerBook G4 doesn't go further than 1440x900 but looks great even though it won't fit to the screen. Will the Mac mini work well for this? Should I get a DVI to HDMI cable instead? Does the the Mac mini output surround sound? The audio receiver has an optical input that looks like an RCA type of connector. So any advice / help would be greatly appreciated!
