Nope, didn't get one. I already have a good device (mediagate) that
had larger drive space, could handle external devices, remote mounts,
etc. And more file formats that I already used (DiVX, etc).
Now, I think the apple tv is sexy, and the interface is amazing. But
I want my 1080, I want it to play everything my laptop does (without
having to hack). I might go that route in the future when I need a
new device, but would still lean more towards the mac-mini solution.
