Andrew E's Mac mini setup
My setup:
- Westinghouse LVM-37W3 LCD Video Monitor - 37", 1080p
- Sanus System VM1B VisionMount LCD Wall Mount
- Apple Mac mini - 1.66GHz Intel Core Duo, 2GB 667MHz DDR2 SDRAM, 60GB HD, CoverFlow RC1.2, iTunes, Last.fm, GasLight, Front Row, VLC, Handbrake
- NewerTech miniStack v2 - 500GB HD - Music, Photos, Movies
- NewerTech miniStack v2 - 120GB HD - Backup
- Apple Wireless Keyboard and Mouse
- Griffin PowerMate
- Apple iSight
- Sherwood RVD-6090R AV Receiver
- Technics SL-1200M3D Quartz Direct Drive Turntable
- Infinity Reference 2000.6 Speakers
- Infinity BU-2 Subwoofer

The Westy is connected to the mini via DVI at a native resolution of 1920x1080--no overscan whatsoever. The picture is terrific, 1080p content is breathtaking. The wall mount is pretty flush, just a couple inches, and strong as it was set into brick. The mini is connected to the receiver via mini TOSLINK. The hard drives are quiet. The remote works well through that tinted glass. The PowerMate provides fast, intuitive scrubbing through CoverFlow (1381 albums) and videos (both QuickTime and VLC). The iSight clings magnetically to the back of the display when not in use--when a call comes in we just move it to the top of the display where it also attaches magnetically. It's microphone still works well back there--voice calls and room recordings sound good. The receiver's tape-out runs back into the mini so we can rip vinyl. The 1200 uses a Stanton Discmaster.

We don't have an EyeTV because we don't watch much TV. We don't have cable or a tuner of any kind. We use Netflix, we rip DVDs, we buy iTunes movies and television shows, and we torrent movies and television shows. We're waiting for HD streaming and downloads. We're waiting for IPTV. We'll buy an HD disc player of some sort when they're reasonable.

Where's your Mac mini? Just kidding, I see it hiding in there with the miniStacks. Good job on mounting the TV. I need to do that with my 42" plasma one of these days.
