Should have known that, but it's been several years since I delved into home theater.

I'd say it's most likely a mis-quote or typo. Hi Def Audio is where the extra speaker arrangements come from, so I doubt the devs would be touting 2.1 stereo because that's just plain old stereo output with a crossover.

I have been thoroughly investigating HDMI over distances greater than 10M lately, to get a signal to a projector 25M from the source and I find a few el-cheapo or older products touting references to HDMI 1.1, most referring to HDMI 1.2, the elite refer to 1.3 (plus a mortgage) and no options yet for 1.4.

I honestly started to consider this device, but I will leave others to bleed on the edge first, then consider the options when version 2 comes out. The Raspberry Pi might still be the better option for what I want to achieve though.

Talking about small computers, I also like http://www.roku.com/ it's about the same size as Raspberry Pi, it comes in a nice box, it's not only the circuit, it has a remote all for $49.99, I wonder if somebody hacked it, it would be even more interesting if somebody managed to root it.
