Groan.  I got a DVI to HDMI adapter that was listed as supporting audio.  I
tried all the audio settings I could find for the internal video DVI-D
port.  No success.  Tried again with the add-on card I had briefly tried
before.  Still no audio to the TV.  Pulled another front end that had a
Radeon internal video with DVI-D and tried again.  No luck.

Either I need to get a PCI-e card for the latter system or (preferably)
someone can suggest a suitable and economical small form factor system that
I can either drop the current frontend's harddrive into or clone it to
something that will fit in the "new" system.

How about the ASUS Eeebox E410-B0735 Mini PC?  The one I'm looking at has
Celeron N3150 (1.60 GHz), Intel HD Graphics, and an HDMI port.  Too

I'd prefer something a little "future-proof" in that it could be expected
to support 4K video in the future.  Wired ethernet is present, FWIW.
