    I am unable to link my new XL4 with Amazon.

    I cannot order videos for download from Amazon from the Tivo or from the Amazon website like I used to from my Series 3.

    The XL4 does not show up as an option to register on Amazon.

    On tivo.com the XL4 is enabled for downloads.

    Any thoughts?

    I brought it to Amazon's attention that it was not on their list of devices to register.

    Does the new Tivo have a Media Access Key yet? It may take 24 hrs to get it and enable transfers. Amazon links to your Tivo account which links to your Tivos.

    I have a MAK. I have a suspicion it is the same MAK as the Series 3 this new XL4 is replacing. The old Series 3 is not being used any more.

    I suspect this because I was using cTivo with the Series 3 and when I run cTivo it is showing me the XL4.

    I have an Amazon rental waiting to be downloaded and it is giving me the Series 3 as the only device. I may try to see if that downloads it to the XL4?

    I am almost at 48 hours since getting everything up and running.

    Still not able to purchase from the Tivo.

    The MAK should be the same for all TiVo's on your account.

    Is Amazon available as a selection in My Shows on your DVR if not go to settings and Video Providers and enable Amazon then enter the Amazon app and follow the instructions.

    Amazon is enabled as a video provider.

    From the app on the Tivo it says "Video on Demand is currently Unavailable."

    Thanks for the info on the MAK.

    I tend to over think these things.

    I figured it out. When registering the devices on the Amazon site it does not give the XL4 as an option.

    Options are:
    TiVo TCD746320 Premiere DVR (Black)

    TiVo TCD748000 Premiere XL DVR (Black)

    I tried the TiVo TCD748000 Premiere XL DVR (Black) and it did not work.

    Choosing the TiVo TCD746320 Premiere DVR (Black) allows me to download Amazon video to the XL4.
