"There is also a USB port but curiously it isn’t active. So you can’t attach a NAS drive full of ripped content or photos and stream to your Fire TV. Do note though that if you use Plex on your home computer that you can stream your own content to the Fire TV via that service."

I don't need a streaming service running on my PC, I'll just stick with my Boxee ;)

Sad they couldn't add that last piece on what sounds like a pretty solid box.

Thank you

Not really answering your question, but FYI,

I have a big media collection that i run with XBMC.   I've been very happy with it.

I also use Air Playit for streaming (from my personal media drives) audio & video to my iphone.    When i'm away, i either watch on the phone or plug in my phone to any HDTV HDMI port.    Streams good.
