I am building a home theatre system and was looking for the right hardware for what I want to do.
On my Home Theatre system, I would like to:
- Watch a online TV episode
- Play home movies/Photos off my mac
- Watch Netflix
- Browse the internet
- Watch an iTunes movie
- Play a DVD
- Watch Youtube
I believe that a Boxee Box (which I already have) + DVD player + Apple TV + Harmony remote would do the trick....
However, the boxee box browser sucks, so I believe I would need my Mac to be connected to the TV with a wireless keyboard and mouse. The only problem is that the Mac is upstairs and cannot be moved. I was thinking of mirroring the mac display with Mountain Lion and an apple TV. However, the harmony remote would trigger the action, and the ir signal from the harmony would not reach the Mac (going upstairs and readying the Mac is not an option ).
Any thoughts on this setup? What should I do about the internet browser problem?
