My latest acquisition… after some time of seeking to upgrade “Marge”, my PPC Mac Mini HTPC… is this rather worn looking ex-French 2007 2GHz Core2Duo Mac Mini + accessories for $66 off eBay. Yay.
Hoping at least to be able to move on from “SD” video files and up to 720p or so… (My TV isn’t full HD, so it’ll do for a while…)
Currently on Marge I use Frontrow, though may revisit the search for all-in-1 front-ends again… I’m going to rip my DVDs (probably keeping them in their Video_TS folders), so that may play a part in my decision making.
Haven’t even had a chance to plug it in yet (7 year olds + Skylanders = compromise + good daddy), but planning to run 10.6.8.
The Mini came with a DVI to VGA adapter/cable… Would I be right in thinking that my existing DVI to HDMI adapter/cable would give better results on a TV screen?? Is it even worth comparing results?
With this, I’ve finally moved on from PPC…! (Well, once I sell the 2 PPC Minis and G5 tower…)
