    Is Netflix streaming only or can I download a movie or tv episode to my TivoHD like I can with Amazon, to view later?

    It's streaming only to all devices, including TiVo's.

    Amazon Instant Video will also stream but not to TiVo's, only to every other internet video device in the world.

    Thanks for the Netflix info.

    Amazon Instant Video will download to my TivoHD from their website. You may be thinking of Amazon Prime.

    I said it won't stream to TiVo's - even though you could easily get the idea it would from their web pages. The bad news is buried a little deeper. I'm assuming you know the distinction between download and stream (?).

    :eek:
    I did miss the stream in your post. Yes I do know the difference.

    I have seen where some people were having problems with Netflix streaming with TivoHD.

    Yes, quite a few people judging by posts here and not just with the HD model. In general a wired Internet connection is preferable to wireless, and I think that's true for almost any video streaming app with any device. Unfortunately there is no "download" alternative for Netflix on any device.
