Hi all, sorry for a newbie question but here goes.

I really like the size and price of the new APPLE MAC MINI. It has the ATI Radeon 9200 card with DVI/VGA out (according to their site).

It seems like I would be able to hook this up as a dvd player to my TV via component cable (i have a 48" mitsubishi widescreen HDTV). and with the correct software be able to scale to 1080i.

This would seem to be cheaper than getting an SDI modded DVD player and an ISCAN HD, and probably have about the same result correct?

hey thank you, I did search for 'mac' earlier and nothing came up? Guess I'll just check all the old pages out first. Thank you again.
