1080p with the new tv

Last night I finally got around to bringing up an extra myth box.  It has hdmi out.  I got it all setup and plugged in.  Powered it up and bame, it came up on the new vizio.  Wow did it look nice.  So I fired up mythtv and sure enough everything was playing just fine.  Still have to figure out how to get audio out of the hdmi conntion.  I am not sure if it is even possible with ubuntu.  It was nice to see the tv negotiated with the computer and came back with 1080p.  Very nice.  Now to see about the audio.  After I figure that portion out it is off to find a very small formfactor setup as the current box is going to be way to big for that tv, I want something like a mac mini.  We shall see what I can come up with.

    Looks like it is possible with an ATI/AMD card:

    I really do not want to have to get another card. I really want to find a small box like the new dell or a mac mini that has everything I need integrated. Then I can either hide it behind the tv or up on the wall where the cable box is right now.
