OK, good to know however my Roamio behaved differently as I couldn't get the transfer to begin until I logged into Amazon on the TiVo. I may have just been antsy to get the transfer started and didn't give it enough time. I started it online but it didn't download, I logged into the Tivo and was able to select it and then it started.
It was a mess that night anyhow, I didn't know about the slow download speed if started on the TiVo, got Gravity in HD and it took over 6 hours to download which ruined the night not to mention I never got to watch it as I had work the next day.
I will state Amazon made good on it and gave me the HD version of it for free so I can watch it over and over, bigger problem I can't watch Gravity without thinking about George Clooney character from "Oh Brother, We're Art Thou?".... "My hair!"
