OK, folks, I'm trying to figure out the best solution. Say you have two or more TVs (I'd have one in the living room, and one in the bedroom). I can't see myself spending an extra $600 (or more) for a mini per TV. I can see myself getting one for the main TV, but for every TV? So then I figured AppleTVs for the secondary TV(s). But they won't play AVIs, MKVs, DVDs, etc. OK, so then I'll rip DVDs, and convert AVIs, MKVs, etc. But quicktime/frontrow won't play 5.1 audio from anything except DVDs. So do I have to have both VIDEO_TS folders and AVIs, MKVs, etc. on the mini, and also .m4v flies for the AppleTV? What a hassle! Even using Plex instead of quicktime/frontrow wouldn't get around the AppleTV problem. What I really need for the secondary TVs is a small and cheap device that will simply play content of any kind pulled down from a networked mini, using 802.11n and properly outputting 5.1 audio.
