Can you use the buttons on the front panel or are they just for
decoration?  I read the Silverstone website info, it all refers to
Media Center/Windows Media Player.  If you can use the buttons, did
you have to do anything fancy to get them working, and what about the
"Function" knob?

I know these are unrelated to your question, but you've got the
hardware and software combo to give a hands on report with :)
