The picture on the Sony Bravia XBR is absolutely beautiful. I would venture to say flawless. My home theatre would not be the same without it and my Mac Mini. Yep, great minds.

I've been looking into this as well. Here are a couple more candidates that I came across:

Interlink VP6210 http://biz.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=289735&CatId=537

BTC 9019URF (Systemax?) http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=1956235&CatId=1482

Also, I emailed the Adesso guys to ask about Mac compatibility. They responded quickly. Here's their response:

The WKB-4000US has not been thoroughly tested for MAC's. I have heard of
customers that have tried it anyway and it worked but you may experience
problems like the touchpad going out after a short time, or the keyboard
may work, but not the touchpad, the keyboard may stop responding...etc.
It is up to you, but I have also heard positive things about it to. Let
me know if you have any questions.

There is also a Microsoft Remote Keyboard for Windows Media Center http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000AOAAN8/104-8914700-2679125?v=glance&n=172282

This one looks sweet and has backlit keys for usage while watching a movie, but I've not read anywhere whether this works with Mac Minis.

Any thoughts or opinions between them? Thanks in advance!



Don't even try the MS Remote Keyboard.... it won't even install drivers on a Windows XP machine that isn't Media Center - forget about trying to get it to work with OSX.

I decided on the Adesso WKB-4000US. Here's an update on how it's going so far.

1. The device is working well for the most part. As predicted by the Adesso support person, it did lock up on me once; I was unable to wake the Mini from Sleep mode using the Adesso. However, hitting the Menu button on the FrontRow remote woke the Mini, and the keyboard was again fully functional. This has only happened once so far. Typically, the Adesso wakes the Mini without problems.

2. The left Windows button is acting as a left Apple Option key, which is handy. I have not yet remapped any keys.

3. Stylistically, the Adesso's grey case is a nice match for the case on the Mini.

Overall, I'm happy with the purchase.
