I notice that the ASUS AM2 M2NPV-VM Motherboard seems to be a common choice and compatible, and I was planning on using that. But I just noticed that it only seems to have DVI output, not HDMI. Whilst I understand that one is backwards compatible with the other, you don't get the control channel with DVI, and I believe that LMCE will automatically control your display if it sees it through HDMI (is this true?) and I would really like to get rid of the pointless extra display remote control that I would predominantly be using just to turn the power on and off!
Are my assumptions here correct? Does anybody know of an equivalent (spec and price) motherboard that does have HDMI??
