I have a HD camcorder and lots and lots of digital photos. I built a mini home theater in the basement -- receiver with 1080i upconversion (component and HDMI outputs) and a 1080i projector with component and DVI-D inputs. But the two have not be introduced. So AppleTV right? Well, AppleTV only supports iMovie HD 30fps @ 540p... sort of loosing some of my great 1080 resolution. I'd only be using the AppleTV as a WIFI device and doubt I'd ever rent HD movies (our ISP seems... well that's off topic). Additionally I have an older Apple Base Station (network b) and the basement is questionably far from the main computer. That means either spend $300 on an AEBS-n + AE-n to bounce the signal (for streaming HD) or go for a 160gb AppleTV and localized the media. So with an AppleTV, I'm looking at $300 (+ a day of running new ethernet through the house so I don't have to keep moving it to sync). I'd have 160gb of storage but only be able it view home videos at 540p. But what about a Mac Mini? I have an extra 300gb FW/USB drive I'm not really using. I wouldn't need to hardwire the house and it'd connect to my ABS-b. Just run the DVI out to the projectors DVI in (audio to the stereo) and keep the rest of the components (DVD player, HD DVR) on the receiver's componet video side. With the computer asleep, the remote wakes it up and it should run off of Front Row. Wouldn't that work? If so, are there certain Mini's I'd want to stay with or would any Intel work since I'm only using it for playback? Used Minis are easy to find and not much more than a 160gb AppleTV... certainly less than one hacked. Side question: anyone have experience with HD iMovies run off a Mac to a TV/projector? Can you keep the resolution at 1080 via custom Quicktime export?
