A special episode of the Maccast with Ara Derderian from the HDTV & Home Theater Podcast (htguys.com).

We also talk about Mac remote control options and a few other odds and ends including our hopes for future generation media based Macs.

    Ara mentions stuttering 1080p 60fps video on the previous gen Mac Mini (now not an issue with the new models).

    Can somebody please confirm what software Ara uses to playback his video? Does he use Front Row/ Quicktime for playback, or something else?

    great show. cheers Adam.

    Another brilliant home theatre show and just in time for me to take the plunge with my own system.

    Thanks again for the advice.

    An excellent episode. I always enjoy it when Ara comes on the show. It was good to hear him explain all about HD. It is annoying that it is not a unified standard. HD tv is relatively new here in Britain, and although I don’t yet own one it is better to be forewarned.

    Regarding getting true 5.1 surround sound out of the I found an very informative hint at macosxhints.com that addresses this issue.
