Angry Amazon FireTV teardown photos

So i got the new toy and after using ADB to side load app's and some testing i wanted to see the good stuff inside. I would have been happy with the FCC photos but they are locked for 180 days.

I hope they will keep others from trying to break open the PITA shell.
Ifixit Photos better then mine

Yes I did. Xbmc runs but is choppy and every video load requires restart to get real video.

Amlogic devices like pivos, top hat play video much better without dropped frames and video slicing.

I'll have to give that a spin as it was far worse and crash when I disabled them.

What build date are you using that plays 1080 like a champ?

Ones I've tested are more of a chump.

Xbmc for ouya runs pretty well. Does DD/DTS hdmi passthrough. I use the plexbmc addon to watch off my plex server. Every once in awhile will notice a dropped frame. But seems to be the best one according to xbmc forums. For the moment anyway. Till a proper version specifically optimized for the fire tv comes out.

Sorry i miss informed you. The set up i actually have is change acceleration to software and enable allow multi threaded software decoding. For some reason that works best for me
