Hopefully someone can shed a bit of insight here on what I would like to do. I have an AppleTV and it works great - but I also have a windows desktop that I use as a HTPC. I've wanted a mac mini to replace this but without an HDMI cable I have been hesistant. Now with the new upgrade to the Minis (improved video card and inclusion of the mini display ports), I am trying to see if it can be my one device to connect to the TV. I currently have a mini display adapter to DVI for my current Macbook Pro and I connect it to my TV and it looks great so I am not too concerned about video - though I do hope it is as clear as my AppleTV currently is over HDMI. My main concern though is with audio. It doesn't have a Toslink optical connetor like the AppleTV does - anyone know what the best quality cable would be to purchase? Or is it just the simple cables with RCA on one end and the mini stereo speaker connector on the other? These usually cannot do 5.1 surround which may be a dealbreaker.
