I am pretty much at the end of my ropes with my ATV and the on again/off again sometimes it wants to stream and sometimes it doesn't, and the same with syncing, Apple TV. It's latest problem is that it doesn't want to color calibrate correctly. Fine, whatever, I'm done. I am looking at the new mac mini's, and I'm very very close to ordering the 120 gig version, with the practically free printer. The idea here would be to hook it up to my widescreen LCD HDTV, and use it not only to watch video directly from my external drives, but also to do light web surfing, and watching streaming video over the internet. I will probably do very very very light video editing as well, but the main purpose of the mini would be for watching tv shows that have already been encoded onto my hard drives, or purchased from itunes. Yes? No? Is this a good idea, or is it more trouble than it's worth? I currently own a wireless keyboard and mouse, and I have ordered this morning the HDMI to DVI cord that I saw recommended in another thread.
