It is sad that they left out this feature. I wonder if the DVI port outputs audio. If it does, then a $1 DVI-to-HDMI adapter will give you an HTPC-suitable HDMI port.

Reps to whoever reports on the presence/absence of audio in the DVI port.
i recently bought the hp p7-1414 for about $360 during BB's open box promo, to be used as our htpc with these specs [hp.com] and seeing that they have the same motherboard as the p7-1446s with these specs [hp.com], i say 'No' it does not have audio out on the DVI port. I have to use the spdif to connect to our audio receiver for now until i can upgrade and put in a dedicated video card.

no need to rep, just would like to contribute info.
