Mac Mini is a brilliant option - but not that cheap.  The AppleTV, running
Linux, is a good option.  If you can pick one up in the US they are cheaper
(about 115).  SD playback is good (from captured DVB-S or T), bootup and
menus are a 'little' slow (there is limited memory - but it's on all the
time, so bootup not a big deal), but overall it's a completely silent, tiny,
appliance-looking very nice piece of kit.
