I've been searching around but can't find a definitive answer. I'm interested in purchasing a FireTV, but I need something that can play files (mkv's mostly) locally via USB thumb drives (a la WD TV Live). I know I can set up a Plex server on my machine and stream files over my wifi network but would prefer the aforementioned method. Is this a possibility with Amazon's FireTV? My audio receiver will decode DTS audio, so I'm not concerned about it processing audio.
Any help/explanation(s) would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
like krelvinaz mentioned, no usb storage option yet, for me my solution was to install xmbc on the fire tv, the usb thumb conected to the USB port of my router, that way i add or remove content of the usb drive from my imac, work flawless for me.
