Thanks for the link. Here's the number one helpful user link, from your link.

It reads like it's 1080p but it has a high disapproval rating in the one and two star range.

Hmmmmmmm?

Looking to see if I can read about audio quality. Found it, Dolby Digital Plus.

We have Amazon Prime and don't have a streaming box yet, but I'm huge on sound quality, hence why we're using blu-ray discs and look for "DTS-HD Master Audio".

I think it will be a long time before we see streaming HD audio. That would be cool but from what I understand it would be so bandwidth intensive it's not feasible until we all have google gigabit internet. that would be major step forward if they figure that out though.

Most one and two star reviews are from people who didn't do their research before buying it and expected a lot from the Fire TV. Some people thought the the Fire TV was going to replace their cable boxes and they were never going to have to pay for cable TV again.

...LOL

Between cable, internet access, blu-ray discs and smartphones, it does cost a bunch to stay entertained these days.
