    OK, that still doesn't answer the question.. I see a way to "buy" individual shows on my Tivo.. but I have bought them on my Amazon acct.. so AFAIK, there's no way to actually tie this to my Tivo so that it doesn't want to charge me again.

    OK, I just went to Amazon, then "Your Video Library" and near the top, "Settings & Devices."
    I see all my PIN, devices listed.

    I clicked on "Unregister" on one of my Tivos and it unregistered ALL Tivos.

    When I try to rent a video, I get....

    You would not be able to tell if the Tivo is registered or unregistered with Amazon until you try to rent or purchase anything. If Unregistered, you get the above screen, registered, it will ask for a PIN.

    For videos purchased online, you have to initiate the download to the Tivo through your Amazon account.

    Go to your video library online and click on a purchased video. You should get a screen that gives you the option to watch now or download...

    When you click on download, you should be given a choice which Tivo (or other device) you want to download to.
    Once you select the device, the download is initiated almost immediately.

    Yes, purchased/rented Amazon content that is in your Video Library MUST be 'Push'ed from there and not 'Pull''ed from the Tivo as that will entail another purchase/rent charge.

    OK, THANKS A LOT!!! I honestly didn't realize you couldn't "pull" from a Tivo.. that's why I thought they weren't "really" connected the same way.

    On the other hand, devices such as Roku and iPad with the Amazon instant video app will not entail additional charges on purchased/rented content as they already grab it from your Video library.
