    Default Apple TV or Mac Mini

    Hi,

    I need some guidance here. My HD just crashed and I need a way to back it up. My first option would be to get a Mac Mini for this purpose. My needs are as follows:
    -At least 160 GB HD
    -Ability to backup using Time Machine
    -Be able to watch downloaded tv shows and movies
    -Connect to the device using Apple Remote Desktop
    -Connect to my plasma tv and use frontrow playing the most popular file formats
    I know this would be no problem if buying a Mac Mini, but could it be done with Apple TV without too much hacking. Guess it would be cheaper.

    Grateful for any suggestions.

    Stefan

    Pony up for the Mini. @TV = server (OS X) or media player (@TV OS)... not both.

    After playing around with Remote Buddy on my iPhone controlling my Macbook, I'm regretting my decision to go with @TV. Seems like it would be tough to get something like that to work on the @TV.... or would it?
