    I hope so too. Since, unless something has changed, the Amazon downloads to TiVos are the only way to get 1080P content from Amazon. While Amazon streaming is only 720P.

    Right, because my two year old Sony Blu-ray player that does Amazon is a power house.

    The chip in the Premiere wasn't even state of the art back when it was released 3.5 years ago. It doesn't even technically meet the minimum system requirements for Adobe Air. So it's very possible that Amazon and other services are holding out for better hardware. The Mini has a much more modern chip that's akin to the one used in Samsung Smart TVs, which also use Adobe Air and have a Amazon Prime app. The next gen TiVo, which is rumored to be released some time this week, will have a similar chip to the Mini. So if they are holding off for better hardware then we shouldn't have to wait very long.

    I have forced a connection a few times on my Mini and also the Premiere it is linked to. I still do not have Netflix. Any suggestions?

    Interestingly she also said something about DTA showing up for the Roamio. I would have thought that Premiere needs an update before DTA is working.

    That's why she said "Roamio". I assume the Roamio units are shipping with a newer version of the software then what we have on our Premiere units. We probably wont see the update for Premiere units for a couple weeks, or maybe not even until the Fall update whenever that happens to be.

    Yes, I somehow missed the Raomio announcement, which is surprising considering my gadget fetish.

    Looks like I can tell my wife what I would like for an anniversary gift this year. Anyone want a good deal on an XL4 + Stream? :p

    Hi all,

    Sorry -- I just learned that while the software update is now available for Mini, Netflix won't actually appear for a few days, possibly not until Monday.

    Hah, I spent an hour trying to get it to show up. I updated, rebooted, did a complete system reset and been in and out of every setting at least 3 times! :p

    The new Netflix app popped up on my Mini this morning. It's very fast, and when you search from the TiVo UI it takes you directly to the show as described. It still doesn't support the new profiles but hopefully that will be added soon.

    Does it still crash if you have 1080p/24 set as an output type? (mine is connected to a 720p TV so I can't even test it)

    Not sure what res my Twitter pal was using, but when he stopped Netflix playback last night, the Mini rebooted:

    I logged into the Netflix app, but ended up not watching anything so I can't report back. Wonder what that Amazon app icon was all about, as that did not make a return with Netflix.

    Maybe they're closer to releasing a Prime Streaming app then we think. :)

    Opened the iOS Netflix app last night and to my surprise when I selected a movie it asked if I wanted to view it on my iPhone or "Theatre" (the name of the mini hooked up the the projector in my home theater). I ran down, powered up and sure enough, there was the Netflix app ready to go! I have a Premier XL4 that I had logged into Netflix on, but almost never used due to slowness and awkward implementation. I had never even looked for Netflix on the Mini. Netflix-on-Mini was great! Fast and intuitive!

    Good things happening at Tivo these days!

    Confirmed DIAL Support on both Mini's with the YouTube and Netflix iOS apps.

    One of two attached TVs supports 1080p. The new Netflix app immediately starts playing 1080p which is a welcome change. When I exit from playing the stream, the Mini immediately reboots. This is 100% repeatable.

    The Mini running a lower resolution doesn't have a problem.

    It looks like this Netflix on Mini is the html5 version as the Roamio has. Finally! Now all we need on the Mini is Season Pass manager and To Do list to work.
