Jason's Mac mini setup
This is a picture of my Mac mini setup as an integral part of my home theater.

The mini: 1.42ghz, 80gig, 512mb, bt/airport, wireless keyboard and mouse hooked up to a Yamaha htr-5830 and using Formac Studio DVR to record shows to disc from my Directv Tivo. I have a newertech ministack underneath the mini with a 300gb, 16mb cache maxtor drive that currently has 42 dvds ripped from handbrake that all runs through front row beautifully. The next step is to get a better tv and surround sound. The 12 year old Zenith isn't cutting it anymore.

Thanks
Jason

How would you rate picture quality using the DVI to video adapter? I want to use my 32" RCA for the same type of setup.

Cheap HDTV CRT can be found everywhere! Go get one. And the gamecube with Wavebird... essential!

Cool setup. Is that a Keyspan remote on top of the mini?

i would go to costco and get a cheap hd crt but my wife is pregnant and is probably going to pop tonight. the quality hooked up to the s-video is actually pretty good. if I am sitting on the couch then text is pretty much readable. thanks for the coments

Once your wife pops run out and get one, you're both gonna be leaving the house a....lot.....less.

Forget it, if you use the composite connectors instead of the s-video on the adapter, the picture looks like ass on any TV over 20"

what software do you use to rip dvds and does it retain the use of the menus, i have some home brew sofware i use right now on my x86 and i can rip any part of any dvd but when i rip the files that contain the menus they run just like a track and have no functionality
