Nothing else required. I havent tested bluetooth, but wireless works (albeit not amazingly). Remote works fine both internal and using the external usb adapter.
One file has to be edited (asound.conf) to get dts and dolby digital working over hdmi.
No problems with Video Sync, unless I have it change to 1080p 24hz with questionable materials. CPU cores run at ~40% each when playing Frozen Planet full 1080p.
Streaming works wonderfully, I can stream SD content no problem over the wifi, HD has some buffering issues I haven't got into yet.
The remote, is ok. It works out of the box, I'll probably change a few of the keymaps for it.
I recommend dropping $40 on the boxee remote for a better user experience if you plan on using it a lot.
That would be because even Wireless N can't really guarantee enough bandwidth/speed required for 1080p HD content. Unless you have a dual band wireless card and router, you will have a very hard time streaming 1080p HD content over wireless.
