I thought some of you might find this interesting. I was messing around with my Amazon Fire TV and came across an app (i think it was $3.99) that would make the fire tv in to a playback device for interfacing with a stereo etc. The app said you needed to have your remote etc but I thought it was interesting. Said it supported up 24/96 but mentioned some streaming limitations (types I think)
I havent tried it out yet but am thinking for $3.99 ill give it a shot.
