    I have Romeo pro and have amazon prime with HBO as a channel add on. When I go into the prime app all of the prime and HBO content is there. When I search from the regular TiVo search, only the prime content shows up. (The HBO content is not there)

    Is the HBO content supposed to show up in the TiVo search or is the technology not quite there yet?

    If is is any suggestions would be helpful.

    thanks Bill

    When using the TiVo Search, the 1P filter and app selection affects the results. To only see Prime, be sure the app "Prime membership" is checked and the 1P default is set to recordings and streaming videos is selected. To record non-free Amazon, check the Amazon Video app and Buy or Rent is included. Also, the second configuration will also get you Prime.

    ...and then don't be surprised when none of your 1Ps include new streaming episodes.

    I don't think that TiVo's search would show any add-on channels that you might subscribe to through Amazon Prime with just the Prime app option selected since I don't think it has a way to know that you've added channels. And if you add Amazon Video, I'm not sure that's going to help either since it's going to want to show rent/buy costs if not available free through Amazon Prime.
