Do you have Classic TV app installed, and have you run it at least once?

Yeah, I already have that installed.
Maybe there's an app to sideload to get the shortcut?

Also, in addition some of my larger files are not playing smoothly at all in XBMC.
Particularly, large Blu-ray rips into mkv and m2ts formats.
I changed some of the settings under 'Acceleration' already with no luck.
Can you recommend some settings for me to get this playing smoothly?
I have a wired connection and my WD TV Live Plus played these files just fine with no stutter at all.

VC-1 encoded rips won't play at all. Some AVC/H.264 saved as MKV's will stutter ('The Dark Knight Rises', 'Bedtime Stories', others), but play fine as M2TS. Re: XBMC video settings, you should only have libstagefright enabled, with mediacodec disabled.

I changed to this setting, but still get playback issues.

Fire TV added the watch Disney apps. I activated them but can't achieve HD only SD. Even the Roku 3 channels will get HD then drop down to SD and never ramp up again even after a restart. The ATV3 is the only device that can maintain HD on the watch channels which is the only reason why I still have that Apple device connected.
