    Not sure how good this information is, but I just called to cancel service on my old Premiere since we just got the Roamio, and the CSR said the "next" update will enable Amazing Prime Instant.

    So we'll see!

    That's been the speculation based on bits of info over the last few months. The CSR's comment is just another data point pointing towards the next update (sometime in November). Time will tell.

    I currently access Amazon Prime Video through my BD player in the LR (where my Pro is located). I am hoping I will be able to access Amazon Prime Video from my Mini located in the MBR as well.

    I wonder if the "streaming improvements" will mean that tablets can allocate a tuner like the mini does rather than forcing the creation of a recording?

    Fantastic! Now all that's left on my TiVo "must" support is HBO Go.

    I called Tivo customer service today to go over some assorted stuff. The rep there told me the same thing about Amazon Prime....... that it is in testing phase now, and as long as the tests look good then it will launch with the next major software release. So we will get it maybe 3 or 4 months from now?

    Can't wait!!

    the update that includes the Prime streaming is the "winter" update not Fall. We've already got that one

    "Late November" is the expected timeframe.

    Did you actually read the post I linked to?

    "I am expecting one more update this year, most likely in late November."

    OK this is major. Help me get rid of my Roku 3.

    In addition to Amazon Prime Streaming, I use Roku 3 for:

    1. HBO Go
    2. Watching movies that are saved on a USB Flash drive
    3. Media Server for pics/videos saved on my PC

    Any pointers on getting the Roamio to handle any of the above?

    Sure wish there was a Tivo Plex app. It would make things a lot easier.

    Isn't someone on these forums developing one? I think they were asking for testers. Search the forums.

    You can also look at pytivo to handle 2 and 3(although you would have to have the computer close by to plug the usb stick into)

    I did and Margret talks about the Fall update in your post which did not include Vudu or Prime.
