Hey guys.... Thinking of picking up one of these bad boys to replace my Boxee Box and Ouya.... I really wanted to like the Ouya but the thing holding it back for me was the lack of optical out. My surround system is a few years old and only has optical, so it was a big reason for me not using the Ouya as much as I thought I would.

So, is it working well on the Fire? I saw comments on the xbmc forum saying it works, but would like confirmation here before I take the plunge.

The lack of remote on Ouya was also an issue, I tried a couple of cheap PC remotes but never found one I liked or worked well enough. Though had it had optical out, I probably would have spent a few more bucks and got a mele or something. So the inclusion of a decent remote with the Fire is also an attraction.....

To answer my own question.... Picked one up today and optical works fine.
