    What's with Amazon Instant video not playing on Tivo Mini? When you purchase a instant video it states you can play/store on up to 2 tivo units. I only have a Roamio and a mini.

    Stored/downloaded to my Roamio, but not able to view on mini.

    Something does not seem right about this. Am I missing something?

    Thanks for any input

    Its not currently supported. There are rumors that TiVo is working on an updated Amazon app but there has not been any confirmation from TiVo.

    Only Amazon downloads are currently supported on TiVos and Minis can't download.

    I think you may have missed the actual question. The OP says he has downloaded an Amazon video to his Roamio but can not stream it to his mini. Is that true? Seems like he should be able to stream it from the Roamio to the mini, but I don't know and don't have a mini to test.

    Yes I did misread. But yes OP is correct, Amazon downloads are prohibited for MRV and MRS for some stupid reason.

    The Mini is just like another TiVo. You can't view Amazon content downloaded on one TiVo from another. And since the Mini can download content, it is not possible to view Amazon content on them. This is one feature I hope they rectify soon. Since I'm reliant one two Minis now I'm not able to watch my normal Amazon content from TiVos like I have in the past. Only from my main viewing location which has my Roamio Pro an dOTA only Premiere

    So Roamio Pro is not compatible with Amazon Instant Video at this time?

    Correct, and it's not just the Roamio Pro. None of the models are compatible.

    Roamios work fine with Amazon Instant Video (that you download to TiVos). It's only Amazon Prime videos (streaming) that are not supported by any TiVo.
