I've been running Plex on a Mac Mini for about 5years now. Great software, easy interface and optimized for controlling with an apple remote control (silver 3 button, not white 2 button) or iphone app. I have it connected via HDMI directly to my receiver and GigE to my LAN.

I actually bought the mac mini specifically for Plex as at the time windows and linux support was kinda weak. Now they've got plex running in TVs and other devices.
