The computer was fairly slow because of hard drive speed and video card. I returned the computer for a refund to buy my current AOpen machine.
1. Needed to open security hole to allow external eSATA hard drive. Although this turned out to be useless because the Mac Mini would not detect the external hard drive.
2. I had to configure Lirc to work with a different remote besides the given Apple remote.
1. Hard drive speed and size is limiting factor in live video and recording video.
2. Video card is limiting factor for HD video.
I only had this machine for a couple weeks and was not able to use it as my only MythTV machine because I wanted to make sure I could still return the system under warranty.
