- Before you select a video, a preview of it shows on the left side of the screen
- Being able to view content on another computer is really nices as I have my podcasts subscribed on my laptop, but I can still view them on the mini.
The installation was very easy. I just connected the DVI port to the HDMI switcher. I then changed the output resolution to 1080i. (I did have to turn off the overscan option.) Then I copied all of the media that was on our linux server and my laptop tot he mini. To control the mini, I am using a Bluetooth keyboard and mouse. I also configured my Harmony 880 remote to control both the Mac mini and the HDMI switcher.
I was expecting 1080i, to be high enough resolution to use this has a computer monitor. But text looks so bad, that I wouldn't want to use it like this. I may just use the built in VNC server.
