How to: Create a Mac Mini Media Center

When I first saw this on my blogroll, I got excited and assumed it was using Mac OSX and being a HTPC…but the guys at WGS have a different twist and have gotten a new Mac Mini with the purpose of putting on Windows Media Center–sorry Plex fans!

Near the top of the tree in terms of small footprint performance is Apple’s Mac Mini – at $699/£649 it’s a premium option for sure, but Cupertino’s mid-2010 refresh of the model has produced a strong hardware specification in a tiny aluminium chassis that would look the business in anyone’s TV cabinet. There are compromises for sure – no internal Blu-ray drive (although you could attach an external drive via USB), a 2.4 GHz Core 2 Duo processor rather than Intel’s new Core i3/5/7 processor family, and a rather sparse package from Apple that lacks keyboard, mouse and HDMI cables. But Apple do design fantastic hardware, so with a little love, the Mac Mini can make a cracking Media Center PC.


    Thirty two years ago I


    Thirty two years ago I began my journey, a dramatic and fascinating inner and outer journey into the experience of kundalini awakening and the process that unfolds once that powerful inner spiritual energy is ignited. It was my great, good fortune to receive shaktipat initiation (the awakening of kundalini) from Swami Muktananda, who was the realized Master of the Siddha Yoga lineage at that time.
