    I'm using both Netflix and Amazon apps on my BOLT and find that using the Amazon app is much slower in terms on initial startup, responding to commands and starting play of a selected program. Netflix is much faster for all three.

    Anyone else notice this? Anyway to improve Amazon response?

    Is this a new BOLT? Wait for a few software updates and then things will zip along.

    Not new. I've had it for 10 months.

    I've always felt like I could watch an entire show on the amazon app on my android tablet while waiting for my roamio amazon app to get past the spinning circles on startup. It is dead slow.

    Netflix pre-loads and runs in the background after the first time you launch it on your Bolt, so when you click on it again it snaps right up. As far as I know, Amazon does not.
