Amazon Downloads will play on the Tivo Mini

Amazon downloads on the Roamio will not play on the Tivo mini if the show is selected from the Tivo mini menu. If you try to play it on the mini you will receive a "Copyright message".

Here is the work around that works for me -
I have the Tivo App downloaded to my IPad.
Open the app.
In the drop down menu that lists your Tivo devices - Select the Mini that you want to watch a program on.
Now, go to My shows in the Tivo App.
Select the Show that you downloaded from Amazon.
Press Watch Show.
The show will now play on the Tivo mini that you selected.

I have confirmed that this will work on the Tivo App for Iphone and the Ipad.

Awesome!! Thanks so much! That fixes one of the two things I wanted fixed in the Roamio! Now if we could just get folders I'd be a happy man.....

Just tried it on mine, works fine. With the spring update I thought there may have been a change but all my minis, Roamio 's and Premieres have recieved the latest update and it still works.

You have to use the Apple app, select the Mini you want to use, browse your shows and when you come to the one you want to watch, select watch now. The only option will be on this TV with iPad greed out. Once it begins to play, you can use the remote to pause, play and fast forward, if you chose any other remote key command such as switching to live TV or going back to my shows, it will stop and you have to restart the Amazon recording from the IOS device.

This won't work as mentioned with the android Tivo app as there is not play option and you can only use it browse the recorded shows, you can't even select a mini box to control as you can with the IOS device app.
