Will HP's USB2 or USB3 Port Replicator work? It has an HDMI out and a DisplayPort out but I doubt it will pass 7.1 audio. It would still give you 6 additional ports that you can add a sound card to without using all the USB ports on the Envy. The Envy is an all-in-one so it won't have any high-end outputs. I don't even think it has USB3 which would be way better at handling HD video and audio.
I don't think ANY of the Envy series has an HDMI out. The HDMI IN is a $50 option that would be used to hook up a gaming console or other HDMI device.
