    Has anyone figured out all the useful buttons on the TiVo remote for the Amazon Instant Video (Prime) app? It's like a minefield, how many of them do an immediate quit of the application, or at least stop the video. In particular, I'm trying to figure out if there's a way, once you hit PAUSE, to get the program detail overlay OFF THE SCREEN so you can actually see the entire paused image. Everything I've tried has been either ineffective or quits (like the Clear button, the way it works outside the app).

    I've searched and hunted both on Google and on the TiVo community forums, and I can't find anywhere where the remote functionality is just laid out. I know the up/down/right/left and Select do most things, but it would be SO helpful to know what else is possible, particularly how to clear the info overlay when you pause during a video. Thanks!

    I don't think you can get rid of it, I've tried too. Still waiting on thumbnails during FF and RW also.

    Yeah, the skip buttons would be pretty handy, too... Meanwhile, Netflix is implementing "skip credits," at least on some platforms, right?
