    Vudu HDX rentals are expensive, but the quality is excellent. They also have a very deep catalog. I wish more stuff was available on Prime, but they seem to be about the same as Netflix in terms of selection.

    Wait a minute, are you purchasing tv episodes from Amazon? You have 8 tuners available to record with! I was only talking about movies.

    No. You've already been told this, you did not ever download an Amazon Prime video to your Tivo because it has never been possible.

    I'm running into this amazon issue alot now that I am reliant on a TiVo mini at my secondary and tertiary viewing locations. Any show I purchase I download to my Romaio Pro, but I can't view them on my TiVo Minis. So for now I need to change inputs and use my Roku2 boxes at each location. But it would be better if I could just keep using my TiVo Minis to view the Amazon content.

    I think the confusion is that Amazon Unbox, now Instant used to have FREE stuff for download. I have downloaded a few Mary Tyler Moore and Fall Guy episodes a few years back to my TivoHD. They were free and never expired. Still have them.

    Amazon Prime Instant Video is NOT on a Tivo. I use my Roku for that. As a Matter of Fact, I use my Tivo just to record television as everything else it does is slow, buggy and breaks.

    A cheap Roku will do everything a Tivo 'says' it can do and more. Use the Tivo for what it was meant for. TV recording, Season Passes, etc.

    TIVO - Television In Video Out. Use it for what it was

    That can't be, Amazon Instant still has free videos that can be downloaded to a Tivo.
