This reminds me by the way for those of you out there who may be on the fence of which CPU to purchase or the picture quailty of a HTPC or the infinitv4, I'm here to say get off the fence and come on down. I own a Kuro and have Verizon Fios. I owned a set top box and I loved my picture. There is NO DISCERIBLE differnce between my old set up and my new one.
The GPU performance of your Ivy bridge far exceeds the capabilities of the Radeon HD 2400, it also has the latest HDMi spec's, 1.4a for 3D video, but as another poster mentioned, Radeon HD 2400 is listed as HDCP Compliant, might have something to do with the dual link, and if he's running dual monitors, I've seen post were dual monitors tend to cause issues, anyway.
Question, on the ivy bridge, have you run in to any issues with the notorious 29/59 bug? Haven't heard much about it lately, the typical channels in question, depending on your provider are CBS, AMC, TNT, HBO, Showtime, to name a few. I've been running both a GT430 and using the integrated graphics on an older I3-550 which both are able to cope with the frame switching, but some radeons, sandybridge processors, were not so lucky.
I'm looking for my next build, and I believe the Intel NGC is the perfect hardware setup, I just don't know if it will deal with the 29/59 bug.
