    Device profile for Amazon Fire TV

    I notice that there is no device profile for the popular Amazon Fire TV media rendering unit. With XBMC side loaded to this device, it can work with KRR through uPnP to play all video files. However, there is no device profile for this unit. As a starting point, I selected the XBMC profile, then replaced it with a Dish Hopper profile modified to support DTS within the matroska container. This seems to work with all my video files and plays 5.1 channel sound through optical output. Like the Dish Hopper, Fire TV does not support AAC5.1 channel sound through optical out, though I cannot find anything official about this. The following profile works around this issue but may need further tweaking:

    <Device ID="812F03E6-41B9-4e93-8AD3-A0BB96F3787B">
    <Description manufacturer="XBMC" >
    <Details>This device profile should be used with the XBMC player. Typically you'll want to disable transcoding for this player.</Details>
    <Identity useragent="XBMC.*" />

    Of course, it's my pleasure. Remember, though, it's a starting point.
