    Now that streaming is enabled between Premieres, is it possible to stream an Amazon video download to another Premiere or does the copy protection prohibit that?

    I think for Amazon content MRS is still prohibited intentionally, but other copy-protected content such as protected recorded TV and/or pyTivo pushes is not.

    That's a bummer. If I paid for the show, I should be able to watch part of it in one room and then continue watching it in another.

    I think if you buy something from amazon, you are supposed to be able to play in on multiple devices. I may be wrong though.

    Correct. The caveat being that you have to download your purchase to each device, individually.

    Yes, you can download it to two TiVos(and other devices like PCs) and two portable unBox devices.. Any complaints about not being able to transfer it need to be sent to the content holders.

    EDIT: I guess it depends on the content. Most of the content I have purchased can only be downloaded to two TiVos. But I do see some content in my Amazon digital library that shows it can be downloaded to as many as six devices.

    So if I rent a movie using Amazon Instant Video on my premiere, how would I download that to my other premiere?

    Since all devices other than TiVo stream, downloading isn't an issue. Purchases and rentals can be streamed to an unlimited number of devices. Another reason (besides the missing free Prime videos) for TiVo to support streaming from Amazon.

    You have to link it to your Amazon account. If you browse and select an Amazon Video from you Tivo, I believe it will take you through the initial setup. They do have some free content, but Amazon Prime isn't supported on Tivo, for now.

    Found the answer on Amazon: Rental videos can only be watched in one location- either online or downloaded to one PC or TiVo box.

    You can press 'Clear' to delete the typo.

    Anyone notice how difficult is now to add time to a recording initiated from the Guide in the HDUI? You're forced to scroll through "Upcoming" to find the episode you've already selected from the Guide.

    Also, when did the numerical shortcuts in "TiVo Central" change when using HDUI? 1-4 still work, 5 is now "Browse TV & Movies", and 6-9 are gone. 8 used to bring up "Suggestions" and now I can't figure a way to get there without the shortcut. 6,7, and 9 at least still have way to navigate to without the shortcut. In the SDUI, all the shortcuts still work as they had in the past. This may have changed previously and I just didn't notice until now.

    Hit select when on the guide and select season pass and other options. You get this same option when you initiate a recording too so you don't have to do it afterwards.

    crxssi, I experienced another case where my Premiere XL would not respond to remote commands even though the amber LED was indicating that IR commands were being received.

    The first incident was reported in the "Premiere Froze" thread on 1/10/2012 via the following two posts:


    Tonight's incident was slightly different, but similar results. I was watching a recorded program and had reached the end of the program. I do not recall if I was at the absolute end where the video had stopped and the overlay asking if I wanted to delete or keep was displayed, or I was just near the end. Whatever the case, I wanted to rewind the last scene and I hit RW three times (i.e., RW3). However, it was rewinding very slow (RW1 was indicated), so I continued to hit the rewind button. The amber LED would flash but it continured rewinding in RW1 mode. I kept trying different remote commands until I realized I may have a similar condition as before. At this point I tried Thumbs Down, Thumbs Up, Play, Play, Play a couple of times with no effect just to see if that would unfreeze it.

    At this point I went looking for my iPad, and by the time I had found where my wife had left it, a couple of minutes had passed. The TiVo was still in RW1 mode. I was able to connect with the iPad app and was able to view My Shows. I tried sending commands using the iPad remote screen, e.g., pause, RW, play, etc. (multiple times!), but that had no effect. I went back to the My Shows list, selected the show that was being played, and selected Watch Now. At this point TiVo started playing the recording from the beginning. I am guessing it had been stuck at least 3-4 minutes. I should have taken note of the time on the progress bar, but I didn't.

    So, we have at least two cases where this has occurred in the HDUI.

    it's been that way since the Premiere was released. Suggestions are in "Browse TV & Internet", I forget which category it's under but it's there.

    That's what I'm doing, but if there are other airings of the show, nightly shows or reruns, you have to scroll through "Upcoming". For example, try selecting an airing of Letterman for next week in the Guide and adding time to it. Also, whether you select "Season pass & other options" or "Explore this show" you get taken to the same screen. Seems redundant.

    I just switched to the HDUI with the latest update, so I hadn't noticed this. The shortcuts were very handy.

    Not sure if this was intentional or accidental, but previously to toggle closed captions via the Banner display, it required more "down" clicks because the CC symbol was at or near the bottom of the icons available. Now I noticed its only 1 click from the starting point. So faster CC toggle on/off!

    I watch mainly Tv shows from Amazon downloads and those I've seen can be from two to six devices. It's been a while since I've rented a movie from Amazon since I have better quality options available.

    Although I'm using Amazon less for Tv now too since VUDU is getting more TV content.

    Yes agreed. It's much easier to toggle CC on/off with standard remote now.

    This is a matter of personal preference, it's not like the background is Yellow or Pink, I personally like it and don't mind it at all.
