Thanks for the feedback.
Knowing that my EPIA ML6000 draws 25W from the wall (no HDD at all)
while hardware-decoding MPEG2, using the same kind of power brick, I'd
say decoding 1080p with 34W is great !
I guess the HDD will still spin, even with SATA disabled at the BIOS.
You could rip 2 more watts off by unpluging it.
Openning it :
Does digital sound come out of the box on HDMI only ? No SPDIF of some
