I recently bought a G4 1.25Ghz MacMini for a home media centre. I've a 250GB firewire 400 attached for the iTunes library and all films/music stored on the external drive. I have a DVI>HDMI adaptor to convert the DVI signal to HDMI and have analogue audio transferred separately. However, sadly the mini's graphic card isn't up to the job as most films jitter during action/panning heavy movement shots. Static shots run fine. I've tried playing films in iTunes, Quicktime and FrontRow, however all have the same effect. I tried the extremal drive on my macbook pro and it streams fine, so the firewire is not the bottle neck. The mini has 1GB RAM and should be capable of streaming video. So to finally get to my question. If I bought a ATV2, use the mini+FW drive as storage will this get around the jitter? Will movies likely play fine? Obviously the ATV2 and Mac-mini would be connected to the same router via Cat5 (ethernet). Thanks in advance.
