Here are my thoughts. I am trying to get rid of cable because I do not use all the crap on it. Here are my thoughts : 2010 Mac Mini El Gato EyeTV One (Record OTA and watch) HDMI out for audio and video to Sony 46" LCD DVD Playback through the Mini Will try the remote app on the iphone for 2.99 but will probably use a magic mouse and bluetooth keyboard. minimal web surfing So I should get: Netflix Streaming Hulu Streaming ESPN 360 streaming (have someone's id) DirecTV Superfan (All NFL games) have someone's ID All local channels in HD with DVR (El Gato) Itunes Music and video library (on mini and shared on other home computers) I plan on buying season passes to the non network shows that I want. Are TV show rentals only going to be for the itv? What do you think? Any suggestions?
