Hello there, Im thinking of buying the new mac mini (2G/320G harddrive version) and using it as a htpc. Im planning to use Plex as the interface. I have a 46 inch Samsung 650. Also planning to buy the HP mediasmart server for more storage. My main use will be watching my ripped dvds, and record/watch tv using plex inteface. I just have a few questions (sorry some are obvious but just want to make sure =P) i) mac mini can output 1080p and 5.1 audio (every person i asked in the apple store gave me different answers!) ii.) how can I record analog/digital tv? Is the eyeTv solution any good? Can the recorded tv be played through plex? iii) When I power on the mini, is there a way for plex to start up right away. (trying to make this easy for the wife and kid) iv.) Can i use the apple remote with plex? any other remotes that could be used? v.) I should be able to play video from the hpmedia smart server?, (using ethernet wired) I was thinking to build a pc htpc but I really want to stay with apple (i have a macbook already). Thanks in advance!
