Native HDMI output with HDCP compliance
has come across more details on
Intel’s upcoming integrated graphics equipped
G35 Express chipset
. The upcoming
is expected to support HDMI video output with HDCP compliance. According to the article the proper HDCP keys and HDMI signal mixing components are integrated into the G35 Express chipset. Supported HDMI video output resolutions include 720p, 1080i and 1080p which is pretty standard.
Although HDMI output and HDCP compliance are native to the G35 Express GMCH, the voltage output levels are different. Native voltage output from the GMCH is 1.2 volts while traditional HDMI voltage is 3.3 volts. Nevertheless, this can be fixed using an intermediary level shifter chip. Nevertheless, even with the required level shifter, G35 Express based solutions with HDMI outputs are expected to be more cost effective than G965 solutions.
The audio portion of the G35 Express has been slightly enhanced to accommodate the audio output capabilities of HDMI. While high definition audio is typically a supported via ICH, the new G35 Express GMCH will have an integrated high definition audio codec. Audio functionality is still a part of the ICH though. Instead of connecting to a separate high definition audio codec, the ICH will connect directly to the GMCH for multi-channel audio output across HDMI with video—minimizing cable clutter.
Intel G35 Express and other
chipsets to hit the market next Spring.

RE: Moving along to better, smaller MediaCenter PCs

Well, I also download HR HDTV shows, but that's because DirecTV doesn't offer my local channels in hi-definition and I like watching my Heroes and House in Hi-Def :(.
I'd also prefer to use the MCE PC itself to show videos, but like I mentioned, I'm having trouble using Media Center without a real Media Center remote. I've figured out how to do a lot of it with ATi's Remote Wonder 2, but just can't find that More menu >_<.
