I'm actually going to use a Mac Mini for my frontend.
I really like the size of it and how it looks compared to pretty much
all the other Mini-ITX systems out there and it's very quiet.
I haven't set it up yet with Myth, but should be pretty easy to do.
The only reason I haven't done it yet is I'm still trying to decide on
a good remote to use.
The only ones I've found that at least at an initial glance could work
- This just doesn't have enough buttons.
- I really like the 880, but not sure it could control the Mac Mini.
http://www.ati.com/products/remotewonder/index.html - This would work,
but is RF only and thus can't control the tv or any other device.
http://www.irtrans.de/english/produkte.htm - This is just a IR
transmitter/receiver, but not sure how it would totally work yet.
I'd really like something like the Harmony 880 or a Pronto.
