In my previous post, I wrote about my dilemma since my lone DVD player (not counting my Macbook) has died. I had three options:
- Buy an el cheapo upconverting DVD Player.
- Buy a $100-$200 very good upconverting DVD player.
- Splurge and get a Playstation 3, complete with Blu-Ray.
I have another option to add to the list: what if Apple releases AppleTV 2.0 on Monday that includes (among other upgrades) with either an upconverting DVD player or (probably a dream) a Blu-Ray player?
I would seriously consider that in a heartbeat. It essentially would be a Mac mini specifically designed as your media center for your TV. No clumsy hacks or buggy 3rd-party software involved.
So I guess I will wait until at least Monday before figuring out what I do.
