Hi

Has anyone here played with the Plex for OS/X Media Centre? http://www.plexapp.com/

I am about to set it up with my Mac Mini and TV tuner.

Is it any good?

Yeah it works well. Although theres no support for tuners at all and I wouldn't expect anytime soon.
It's still pretty much identical to XBMC so no Mac spacific features.

If you want to go this way I would probably go with the EyeTV software which intergrates with Frontrow. That along with Perian will get you almost the same playback capabilities of XBMC - along with FreeviewHD.

Personally I'm waiting to Apple lauch either a better AppleTV or a Mini with at least X1300 gfx - so that 1080P out put is possible. For now neither have the power to deal with full HD.
