Personally I'm not a fan of using extended desktop for the first scenario you described. The mouse can go off screen and for some reason having 2 screens enabled causes screen tearing on 1 of the 2...

Yes it's an output. It is highly unlikely to find a graphics card that includes any inputs. If they did it would be a key selling point like the old ati and 3dfx gpus with tv tuners built in.

I could be wrong about this but I'm pretty sure if it supports dd/dts 5.1 it will do 6.1 as well.

I thought the Baytrail version was the 2nd or 3rd generation of NUCs. So how can this new one only be the 2.0?

Personally I wouldn't try to rebuild that. You could get a baytrail J1900 that performs about the same but consumes 1/5th of the power. Most of them are fanless as well.
