Mac mini Home Theater Dock

Many of us have been dreaming of the "right" way to incorporate a Mac mini into our home theaters. The mini is kind of a half step, as I mentioned earlier, it has the beginnings of a decent HTPC but isn't there yet. What's missing is hard drive space, a convenient way to get video into the machine, digital audio out and processing power. Asteroid has come up with an interesting idea, a dock that would integrate additional, user configurable, storage, component video out, digital audio out, a TV tuner/digitizer like the EyeTV 500. The artist's rednering looks something like this:

Pretty nice. Now if only somebody would make one of these...
