Maybe Amazon is going to go away completely on Tivo.
Here is why the black sticker:
http://support.tivo.com/app/answers/.../253/kw/amazon

Regulatory changes made by the FCC on January 1, 2014, made Amazon Instant Video incompatible with Roamio Series DVRs manufactured after that date. Additionally, Premieres running standard-definition menus (SDUI) are unable to use the app:

Roamio Series DVRs
To see if your Roamio is compatible with Amazon Instant Video, check the manufacture date of your DVR. You can find this date on a sticker on the back of the DVR.
If the DVR was manufactured before January 1, 2014, it is compatible with Amazon Instant Video.

So the Roamio is unable to show closed captioning from Amazon content?

I'm not sure why this should even be an issue. Did TiVo just not want to update the Roamio Amazon app to comply with the new FCC regulations?

I think it means that any box manufactured on or after 1/1/14 must be in compliance with the new FCC regulation. Older boxes are grandfathered.

Kind of stinks too because I was saving up to purchase a Pro and two mini's and then sell my Premieres. I use Amazon Instant almost every weekend to rent movies. Now I will wait to see if we ever get a new Amazon app.

Mine was manufactured in 2014 and it plays Amazon Instant Video just fine.

I just contacted Amazon today to let them know I wanted the ability to stream Amazon Prime Instant Video to my TiVo Roamio. I got a response back within less than an hour with far more information than I had expected, including direct confirmation that this functionality is coming soon. See for yourself:

Hello,

We hope you will accept our sincere apologies for the inconvenience your experienced.

I understand your concern about watching Amazon Prime Instant Videos on your TiVo. I'd like to let you know that, you can purchase and download, but not stream, Amazon Instant Video titles to your TiVo. Because streaming is not supported at this time, you can't stream Prime Instant Video titles on your TiVo.

We would never want to disappoint a valued customer like you and we always endeavor to assist our customer with the best of our service so we can ensure that we fulfill all of their needs, however sometimes we fail to do so due to factors out of our control.

However, I'd like to let you know that, we've received many requests from our customers to make Prime Video Streaming available on TiVo devices and we're working on it with top most priority.

We are trying very hard to establish ourselves as a successful online digital store and can assure you of numerous changes in very near future which will enable us to achieve our goal and Customer feedback like yours is very important in helping us continue to improve our website and services.

I've immediately forwarded your query to the concerned team to make Prime Video Streaming available on TiVo and I'm sure this will definitely happen soon.

Please check back for the availability of an option to stream Prime Videos on TiVo devices.

Your patience is truly appreciated. We look forward to seeing you again soon.



Best regards,
Akshay
So, it truly must be coming soon. From what I know of customer service, support reps will only confirm that a feature is coming after it is basically complete.

It will be great to have this built into my TiVo so I don't have to switch over to my Roku just to watch Amazon Prime Instant Video!

September may be a super happy month for Tivo users. With this AND android streaming, Tivo has caught up with their biggest gripes. Just got a stream for $25 from craigslist! Yipppie.

I'd rather they worked on something that's actually useful. Considering how many other devices support Amazon streaming, there are lots of other things that would actually add value and do something that isn't already easily available.

I would like them to simply fix the copyright restriction of viewing Amazon content on a Mini. With the restrictions Tivo imposes it's a secure system, we aren't talking about transferring but just streaming them from central location once downloaded.

Yes you can use an Apple device to get around that but not all people have Apples to do so.
