    How can I download videos from my Amazon Instant Video Library to my Roamio or Mini? TiVo and Amazon help suggest I can access my library for re-download, but it's not clear how...or if their support is outdated.

    In an older TCF thread, it seems there isn't a way to download videos I've previously purchased.

    Ok, after a little more exploration, I see I can push a download from Amazon to my Roamio. Hopefully I can also play that on my mini.

    I haven't tried this precise scenario, but I would be shocked if you could not play it on the Mini.

    I was able to download my Amazon Instant Videos and watch it on my Roamio. Unfortunately, it won't allow me to watch it from my Mini.

    Yes, Amazon puts restrictions on the downloads and doesn't allow them to be streamed anywhere.

    That's disappointing. I thought that the Mini was supposed to be able to stream pretty much anything from a Roamio, but that is a very small fraction of my viewing, so it won't matter much.

    Somebody posted a workaround in a thread around here not too long ago that allows for Amazon videos to be viewed on the Minis. Sorry I don't have the link, but it's here somewhere. :)
