I got myself a Mac Mini and have started setting it up, tentatively as a HTPC.
So far, what I have noted is:
– File Sharing – For file share to work across Windows and Mac (System Preferences->Sharing->Options, you have to select the Windows Compatible option Share using SMB (Windows).
– iTunes doesn’t play .avi files, I will check Plex next.
– Add a “Open Terminal option to folder menu in Finder – http://blog.leenarts.net/2009/09/03/open-service-here/
