media center 1.0

Here is my current media center setup:

  • 47″ Vizio LCD TV
  • Apple Mac Mini (Early 2009 Model) running OS X 10.8.2
    • 120GB HDD
    • 250GB External HDD
  • Apple TV

Both the Mac Mini and the Apple TV are hooked up to the TV via HDMI. Movies/music are ripped from DVDs/CDs and stored on the Mac Mini in MP4 format, then added to iTunes with Computer Sharing.

The Apple TV points to the Mac Mini iTunes collection.

Life is good.
