This is a mini itx board from intel supporting lots of new processors
and has hdmi out.

As its intel , who are a bit nicer with their open source views - does
anyone know if audio over hdmi will work with this board?

There is another question, that may/may not be specific to this board.
It doesn't have a proper RS232 serial port - which I use for lirc. I
would like one. It has a serial port header, so does this mean I can get
an adaptor/cable that will work with it and turn it into a proper serial
port?? I cannot use a usb->serial adaptor as lirc doesn't like them. 

Any other thoughts about this bit of kit welcome. I need a new quiet
small FE - eee box was tempting but no serial and hdmi.  Same problem
with mac mini. Dell studio hybrid has hdmi,  but that isn't a cheap bit
of kit.
