    Hi. I recently upgraded to TiVo Series4. I have a lot of content in my Amazon Prime video library. I've linked my account and tried to access the shows I own, but I can't find them.

    Is there a way to download that existing content, without having to re-buy it?

    Thanks!

    Have you tried initiating the downloads from the Amazon web site? I think that generally works better.

    By "Prime Content" do you mean streaming?

    I'm not sure I know the difference. I bought a season of The Wire that I was streaming to a Google TV. I can buy the same episodes via TiVo, but I get charged again.

    I think you're right. Just thought I'd check here first. I'll post my result.

    Turns out I was just impatient. After a couple of days, I got and option to download on Amazon. Loving the TiVo so far. Much better than GoogleTV its replacing.

    Which Google TV box did you have?

    Also, how do you compare Google TV to TiVo? TiVo doesn't have a web browser and Google TV isn't a DVR. :confused:

    Logitech Revue.

    Ok, I should have said GoogleTV in combination with a Time Warner DVR.

    TiVo allows me to access the same content that I was using GTV to get (Amazon, Netflix, YouTube), but provides a nicer interface. Web browsing is not useful functionality on the television.
