    This is what shows up from the Amazon app on my TiVos. It shows up as UltraHD below the scrub bar. As opposed to showing 1080P HD when it's just playing back a 1080P encode.

    aaronwt: you are correct. [UltraHD] shows up when the show is paused. And, in fact, the TiVO Amazon Prime Video menu page offers a row of "Original Series in 4K Ultra HD". I'm not sure why I didn't see this earlier. Maybe it has something to do with the difficulty I have had setting the output resolution.

    the bolt is not Amazon UHD certified yet (it's in progress). When it was showing UHD videos late last year that was someone's mistake. Yes, it's been 4 years or so since bolt launched and still no UHD for Amazon. Typical Tivo..... Mini Vox has Amazon UHD certification. HDR is slated to hit our boxes this year, but Tivo seems to always miss their own deadlines so don't hold your breath.

    Yes. UHD in SDR.
