    I was wondering what software people install on their new Lion mac-minis for home theatre use? My new 2011 Mac Mini so far has installed on it:

    Flip4Mac
    Perian
    VLC 64bit
    Handbrake
    HotSpotShield (for streaming Netflix and TV shows outside of the US)
    Vuze
    DropBox
    Flash Safari PlugIn
    Silverlight Safari PlugIn
    Adobe Air

    I don't use media center software such as Boxee.

    Even though you don't use media center software, I would still recommend trying out Plex as the Plex Media Server can transcode and stream to your iPhone and iPad very nicely around the house.

    For controlling the Mac mini, I would try RemoteBuddy if you have the Apple Remote and it's on sale at the moment for 16 euros. Also, Air Mouse for the iPad is great addition. I found the iPhone version too small to be useful for typing.
