There are other Mac remote control options you might also want to
check into.    On my intel Mini, I use the ATI Remote Wonder II.   It
works great for controlling MythTV and doing other basic tasks without
resorting to a mouse & keyboard.

You can program the function keys to start applications, like MythTV,
DVD Player.app, etc.   The direction pad controls the mouse pointer,
and you can set the remote keys to send keypresses to the app in
focus.    They can be purchased on eBay for under $30.

Also, regarding the PPC Mini,   I assume you're just going to be doing
SD video..   To do HD, you'll need some more horsepower,  probably a
Core Duo 1.66GHz minimum.
