    I have a C2D MM connected to the living room tv, and use a wireless mouse/keyboard. My girlfirend hates this setup.

    Is there an easy way to use a MBA to download movies/music to my TC, and use the MBA to tell the MM to play a specific file from the TC?

    She just thinks it too hard to read the files on the screen from the couch.

    Any help/advice would be great!

    I hate this setup too - top many acronyms. OMGWTFBBQ! ;-)

    The only one I know is ...TV. OK, not entirely true - I got Time Capsule too. It's probably just me that doesn't get the acronyms since I am a PC guy....except for my Mini (hey, that must be what an MM is!).

    Sorry I can't help you..... Ignore me.....

    Use the Mac's built in screen sharing, it's been part of the OS since 2007. I use it all the time to control my Mac mini from other parts of the house.

    Your Mac mini desktop will show up on your MBA.

    If your mini is hooked up to a 1080p tv, it's going to appear tiny on your MBA screen.
