    I was impressed at how responsive the new Amazon App is. It is a little slow to load, but once loaded there is very little lag.

    The Netflix App seems a bit more responsive also.

    "This may take an hour or longer..." this time was less than 10 minutes. And the Amazon app was already there (and put back into 'My Shows'). Signed back in, and boom. There's my watchlist. Will play tonight.

    I am forcing a connection on my main TiVo and crossing my fingers the update gets pushed down. I signed up for early access to the update the first day it was available, so hopefully my Premieres made the list! The big missing link for my Premiere has been Amazon (Prime) Instant Video streaming and I can't wait to check it out.

    I just got Amazon Prime on my living room Premiere 4. It was scheduled to connect to the service at 5:24 PM and I got a listings update so I immediately forced another connection and Amazon Prime showed up.
    I did not have a pending restart on this box so I forced a connection at 1:00 PM and got the 1P update but no Prime.

    I got the 1P update sometime late yesterday or last night on my bedroom Premiere 4 so I restarted the box at lunch time. There was no Prime app on this box. I am currently connecting to the service right now and it seems like I am getting a listings update. Once that connection finishes I will make the second connection and Prime should be available on this box to.

    Update: Prime is now on my bedroom Premiere 4 after the second connection.

    Maybe I'm confused but how do we transfer shows from our Premiere to our iOS devices? In the release notes Margret mentions being able to do that. I can't find how...I have the update now and the latest version of iOS.

    Ah no. She didn't mention requiring that in the notes but I should have known that. Thanks

    Yes, sorry -- the text was originally from my Roamio release notes. For it to work with Premiere you need a TiVo Stream.

    I never used Amazon Prime before. What TiVo do I select to set up Prime streaming. My Premiere 4 model is not listed. Can I use the base Roamio?

    I have to say so far 1P is working very good for me. I have 20.4.6a.RC1.
    I noticed that the flash player version changed to mainline3/2014.9.11-1305. I think the previous version was 2014.7.8.
    Navigating the My shows menu is very fast now.
    It takes about 15 seconds to load Amazon Prime. I will take the time to set it up tomorrow.

    It was a very busy day as I got the new update, my cable company added new channels and I had to send in a channel update request to Gracenote, and my cable company is encrypting all the in the clear Qam channels.
    Then the cherry on top was getting Amazon Prime this evening. This is the one thing I have been waiting for.

    I am glad this update happened today as my cable company is going to do some significant upgrades to the distribution system in my town in the coming weeks. Also we are going to get moved out of the old Bears Head head end by the end of March.
    I was starting to worry that the update would have come in the middle of all this mess and possibly screw up one of my boxes.

    Thanks! It is working. I guess I do the same for my Premiere 4 in the bedroom?
    I think I may watch the Sopranos again.

    Is it expected that Amazon videos may take some time to get indexed and show up in One Pass and search results?

    A couple of examples -

    "Under The Skin" with Scarlett Johansson shows as available for streaming in the Amazon App but doesn't show up in TiVo search. If you track it down by finding it in Movies under Scarlett Johansson it shows as not currently available.

    Season 22 of Top Gear shows up as available for purchase in the Amazon App but season 22 episodes do not show up in One Pass even when you select the option to include paid content and show all episodes.

    Anyway, many thanks for adding Amazon Prime streaming. It looks really good so far.

    Did you turn on both Amazon and Amazon Prime? It won't show stuff in search results that you have to buy if you only turn on Prime.
