Why do these companies insist on putting the digital out in such brain
dead places?  Come on, in front of the case??

What do  other users of this system do with S/PDIF?  Is there a way to
modify the box to get S\PDIF out to the back or at least to plug it in
without leaving the front cover open?

This box is perfect in all other ways and I am having trouble finding
anything else the meets my requirement:
SVideo, DVI, L+R, S\PDIF, and the usual KVM+USB



I used to use an FIC Condor(no longer made) which had an optical connection
on the front. I had the system behind my tv thou with a streamzap ir
receiver coming out from to accept signals. With the machine hidden it
didn't matter to me that the optical was in the front.

I moved to an AppleTV due to wanting to eliminate fan noise, I got married
and she had issues with it.

DVD playback then moved to my 360 which is fine, and we also have a STB for
the channels Myth can't get right now. This may change in the future once
the HD-PVR drivers are finished, if the AppleTV can handle the recordings
made by the HD-PVR, or at least the transcoded videos.
