    All I got was "Cannot Parse" after entering my password in Amazon Unbox. I've started a thread in the Help Center on it.

    Be careful not to 1-Click a whole season :eek:

    I'm hoping this is a trend...get the season premier before it's on to see if it's worth watching. I saw a commercial for Chuck at an AMC Theater over the weekend and it looks like it could be good.

    Are they in HD? No? I guess I'll wait until the season premieres...

    check out the body double of the gymnast in the first five minutes -- before the roof scenes -- just before and after he goes thru the tiny window.

    Well this is the first time I've used Unbox and was pleasantly surprised by the quality. It's obviously not HD but the quality was still fairly crisp, sound was good and the show (Chuck) was actually quite good. But going back to quality I'm not disappointed at all as it seems better than some of the stuff I watch in SD. Now if only they could get rid of the download lag and have immediate playback it'd be really good. (And HD, of course.)

    Entering the Amacon.com login and Tivo password was a PITA (can't we use the WiiMote on the Tivo yet?), but overall a smooth experience. My Internet connection sucks, but I'll see how long it takes.

    I did it from my computer, not my Tivo.

    In fact, I did it when I wasn't even at home.

    For some reason, "Journeyman" doesn't show up under Free Downloads when I check it from the Tivo.

    PQ on "Life" is very good, probably better than SD broadcast.

    Edit: Journeyman is in the menu now. :up:

    Most probably because this is a "teaser" to get people using Unbox. It looks like everyone's a winner here: 1) NBC sticks it to Apple and gets people interested in their upcoming shows, 2) we get free shows early, 3) Amazon gets people to sign up for and try Unbox thereby breaking through the "first-time" barrier, and 4) TiVo (might) get new subscribers since this is a TiVo-only activity.

    Once you set up Unbox on your Tivo the first time, all you have to enter is a 5 digit PIN when you want to buy something, and you do that from your remote. It couldn't be simpler.
