I went looking at the info Apple has up about Tiger and its Core Image
technology. At http://www.apple.com/macmini/specs.html, it says that
the mini uses a Radeon 9200. The short list of supported cards on the
Core Image page http://www.apple.com/macosx/features/coreimage/ seems to
indicate that the mini won't get the hardware support required for HD
playback. We'll have to wait and see, I suppose.
