Thanks. That's exactly what I wanted to know. I'm tempted by the AppleTV but even though I have a lot of Apple hardware, I'm not invested in their ecosystem.
From memory I think the audio out only delivers 2 channel sound. I could be wrong but I know this is an issue somewhere but may certainly apply here.
I use Amazon Prime too and the TV app just plain stinks. Xbox 360 app navigation is multiples better organized and easier to navigate. Can't speak to Roku or PC solution (although I do have a HTPC, just don't bother with Prime Video on it).
