All correct. They have the descression to do with it what they wish (Read the warrenty and EULA info for on this) but for cost reasons they will either:
1: fix it and also swap out the dvd drive for a benq (to prevent fw modding)
2: scrap it all together and send you a referbished "core" with hdmi ports on it (newer model, "most" issues fixed, most already have benq drives in them)
actually when I went through my coffin box, i had a letter from MS repair that told me I got a "new" (i'm thinking refurb) box with a totally new serial #. No HDMI port on my repaired/replacement box.
