The other things it doesn't have:

1. spdif out (but audio over hdmi works)

2. a method of connecting to an older CRT TV - you have hdmi and vga
only, no composite, component or s-video (but if you are looking for
an HD frontend you probably don't mind that).

Just worth noting these things sometimes, even if it doesn't worry
you, someone looking in the archives may want to know.
