Question: where's the streaming and usb host support? hdmi passthrough?

Other samsung receivers have usb host support for mp3 playback and ripping. HT-BD1250 has network streaming but no hdmi inputs. It's lame to give up features in order to get hdmi inputs.

It's not clear how the hdmi is supported, is it passthrough with no 5.1 decode or is it a repeater?
