Hi there, I'm about to switch out the Mini under my TV for an Apple TV - I really don't use the Mini for anything more than watching a few films and watching some web based catch up TV services. I also have an iMac which is my 'main' Mac where my iTunes library is housed. I have switched my living room TV recording away from EyeTV to a dedicated PVR. The few films I do have have now been handbraked to iTunes format to allow for easy streaming, and although I can currently use Airfoil on my iMac and Airfoil speakers on my Mini to stream iTunes (or other audio) to the Hi-fi connected Mini, it's a bit clunky. Also, navigating a Mini within anything other than the limited and now defunct Front Row isn't a great 10ft experience. So, having switching from wi-fi to Powerline networking, I'm confident that for my music & video iMac to Apple TV makes the most sense. I've also discovered a hack based app that includes a browser for the AppleTV that will give me access to web based catch up sites (eg 4OD). So... to my question: Should I sell my Mini (early 2009 2Ghz Intel Core Duo, 4GB RAM, 320Gb HDD) or issue as a NAS? My video library isn't huge, and if it expands I'm thinking a simple external drive would be suffice. So my question is: Do I need a NAS? What are the benefits of having one? Is having a Mini switched on all the time any more or less convenient than having the iMac switched on all the time? While I don't want to sell a quality machine if I can make good use of it, I can't see what real benefit it will give me... Am I missing something? Thoughts?
