Is that receiver HDMI passthrough or does it actually accept HDMI as sound input? HDMI 1.4 and 3D ready, that thing must be a brand spankin new model.
Yep, since this is not only a media machine, but a normal home computer for my family room. HTPC is just much nicer than a STB or even Popcorn hour and the like...

It accepts HDMI as sound input, from what I read on the internets anyway. Makes this HTIB quite nice for the price.
