Advertisements First let me say this, I am a windows media center convert. I had a 7MC server and 5 clients running for years and loved them. I recently replaced my 7MC server with a Romeo Pro HD and 5 mini's. All are wired with cat5 and the past few weeks everything has been working like a charm. I under stand the difference between the mini and running Romeo's around the house. I personally don't see why you would have too. The mini really works pretty well, and I have no complaints so far. The whole family seems to be ok with UI change and likes the features of how everything works. EDIT: I should also add that I originally started off with series 2's.
