FireTV doesn't support VC-1 and Mpeg2 hardware decoding, so I was leaning towards that being an issue. The only stuttering/lag problems I've had is playing a VC-1 rip and 10bit rips.

Hi guys I bought my AFTV from ebay as im in the UK and was going to root it but just read that it will be released in the UK for in December.

So assuming there will need to be some update the device to get prime video to work etc. Rooting it wont block any updates permanently will it?

Can I ask where you bought it from and how much? does it work fine in the UK?

Sorry to butt into the thread, but I also bought mine on ebay and live in Spain. With postage and customs pre-paid it cost me £124. Hope that helps. p.s. VERY happy with speed etc.
