[vdr] Mac mini + Xine plugin = perfect vdr client?

IMHO the Mac mini is an excellent machine for the living room.
* It is so silent you can hardly hear it.
* It looks good and does not take up a lot of space.
* It has a built-in DVD ROM.
* It runs 2 UNIXes - MacOS X and Linux.
* It has a DVI output which provides perfect picture
quality with a DLP beamer or a flat panel display.
So I am thinking of using one instead of my current
diskless VDR client (an MSI hetis barebone).
Of course the Mac mini does not have a PCI slot,
so I will not be able to put in a DVB card.
Would the Xine plugin be a good solution for such a system?
Has anyone tried it on a Mac running Linux?
TIA for any info,
