    Signing in and linking the Tivo-amazon app with your amazon prime account for movie and TV has no option that I can see for accessing your existing amazon purchases from your amazon media library.
    I have a few movies I bought long ago and they have always displayed in the purchased queue on amazon prime. But with the tivo-amazon app, how or can one access their amazon purchased queue?
    All this amazon app appears to be for is renting or purchasing but where is there access to your queue on the tivo for re-downloading?
    Or even the ability to access your amazon account on the tivo-amazon app after linking up the unit.
    If you were to buy, not rent but buy a movie using the tivo-amazon app, how could you have re-access to those purchases if they were deleted off the box.
    I don't see any way to re-download purchases or access your amazon queue.
    Am I not seeing this option?
    Hope this makes sense.

    There is no Amazon queue.

    For purchased or rented video, you need to go to your Amazon video library with your computer browser and in each video, select your Tivo and sooooon, they will download.

    Oh. Ok thanks so much. Now I kind of remember that process from years ago and amazon.
    I guess I was thinking more of how Hulu works.

    Too, with your online web Amazon account, you must register and/or refresh your TiVo's to be able to select them to receive your Amazon content. Despite only showing the Premiere and HD models, Roamio is supported and you won't see the newer TiVo models until you link your Amazon and tivo accounts together.

    Just a reminder too if you don't already know , don't purchase Amazon content for your Tivo but rather use a tablet/PC Web browser to transfer content down to your Tivo, otherwise the transfer time will be horrible. I have seen a hour half move take over 6 hours to transfer down when I purchased it from the TiVo but only a few few minutes using the Web interface. Don't know why but it's the way it is!
