    Hey cool!! :cool:

    I have a Mac min Core Duo attached via DVI to my "HD-ready" (720p) LCD TV, and the Optical Audio out to my Logitech Z-680 Dolby 5.1 surround system..... and using Front Row is ever so cool. :)
    DVD player gives me true Dolby 5.1 as does VLC player which is gr8 for HD movies too.

    But, there is only one "media player" solution that does it all really, i.e. HD resolution movie files (AVI, MPEG, VIDEO_TS, MKV.. etc.) with Dolby 5.1 Digital support in one interface: OSXBMC.
    The interface is very Microsoft like, though... not user friendly and irritating to get it setup just right for your situation. But if it is setup correctly, it is a very cool add-on!

    EDIT:
    Downloading via 'torrent, and will stay seeding too. :)
