    From looking at the specifics behind his ratings, I guess it's fair to say that he really wants better Amazon support. :D

    Haha. Regarding Amazon, it seems like he thinks Amazon Instant isn't integrated into the search results which is incorrect.

    He's also saying Hulu Plus isn't integrated in the TiVo search. You would think he would have tried more than one program. I know the database isn't perfect but the unified search is one of my favorite features on my Premiere. When I do watch Amazon Instant Video I purchase the video on Amazon.com and download it to my Premiere for viewing on the Amazon website so I'm never subjected to the jarring SD Amazon interface.

    I can't wait to get my Roamio with the new apps.

    I love you guys.

    All the searches for Hulu and Amazon content failed when I wrote my review.

    And yes, I had the series 2 DirecTiVo, which was HD. Believe me, I paid $800 for it and it worked for all of 6 months.

    Indeed it was HD. I have two sitting in the garage. It was the slow, slow addition of any more HD channels that worked with that DirectTiVo that drove me to Comcast and a TiVo HD.

    Now five months after receiving my Roamio, I've added a TiVo Mini and sold both TiVoHD units.
