Yea I love firefox but nothing beats Kylo on the big screen, makes browsing from the couch really nice and easier to see from a bit of a distance. For example I'll fire up Kylo when I have friends over so they can browse. No matter what browser I'm using I always go to http://www.youtube.com/xl instead of the regular youtube looks way nicer on an hdtv, give it a try its pretty cool

Yea those are pretty slick input devices, I was thinking about the bluetooth model of that same keyboard a while ago, good to know they have issues. Oh and I also have the GT210 on one of my pc's but it does not get audio over its HDMI not because of the video card itself but the motherboards chipset needs to support audio over pcie. Most intel chipsets do but mines an AsRock 4CoreDual-VSTA with a VIA chipset that doesnt support it but does have a SPDIF header that i use, Just thought I'd pass that info on.
