    To me....the apps on Tivo are slow compared to the other boxes (ATV, Roku, etc). So the benefit at this point is having the show in My Shows (direct access right into the episode). If there is going to be a delay, then the whole system becomes less useful to me. If I have to launch the app to get to the show, I might as well load it from the other boxes that are faster (and less prone to crashing and taking my whole DVR down).

    I agree with you, we won't know until we get a little more experience and in most situations, people wouldn't even notice a 24 hour latency.

    It could be very well be that Amazon has a refresh process of their own that is latent. And it may improve over time.

    I never said this was a show stopper bug, but it is something that the naysayers will jump on pretty hard!

    Those devices are designed around apps. That is there main purpose so it would make sense. Last time I checked Tivo main purpose was a eve first and foremost. Yes they are trying to venture into other areas to offer more but it is still primarily a DVR.

    Also no app recently and months have crashed my tivo. I use tivo for Netflix and Amazon exclusively now.

    Yeah, I get it. First world problem right! :p

    I really want this all to work well for Tivo as it's nice to have things in one place, it's just at times difficult to embrace it because it can be slow. And, because I do need Tivo to be a DVR first and foremost.....I can't stand how one of these apps can bring down the entire box. Only need that to happen a few times to get me thinking twice about using them if I have shows being recorded.

    If a check isn't made when entering a folder and new stuff is available but doesn't show up quite yet no big deal. On the other hand if stuff displays that is no longer there it would be frustrating to click on episodes only to get a "Sorry Charlie" message for each one.

    Interesting, do you have a Roamio or a Premiere... I don't think my Roamio has ever crashed going in and out of Netflix / Amazon.

    Something that needs to be tracked, I suppose

    Roamio Plus.

    I have had it crash/lockup with Netflix and Vudu, not Amazon yet. Not a frequent occurrence.....but again, because they CAN crash the box (or force pulling the power) I always hesitate because the box is usually recording something.

    I have a plus and one version of vudu did crash the box. It was when it first came out and was quickly fixed. Never had it since. Nor does any other crash it and me and my kids use all but vudu allot. Netfilx, amazon and youtube.

    My beef is more about the architecture of the Tivo in that an app CAN bring down the entire box. I have no problem with an app crashing....I just don't want it to take the entire Tivo with it.

    My Tivos are DVRs first and streaming boxes second. So even though it rarely happens, because I have those other boxes, most times I'm switching to them because I don't want to take the chance.

    An app can bring down an entire phone. A program can bring down a computer. It happens. That is one of the cons of technology. But it makes sense on what you are doing. If you don't want to take a chance use the Tivo for what is was designed for and the others for what they were designed for.

    I have also experienced the problem with Xfinity VOD.

    I had set up a Record/Stream OnePass for "Episodes" on Showtime before last weekend. XOD has been making the following week's episode available after the preceding ep airs on Sunday evening. I checked the 1P folder and it didn't show up there on Monday, but when I immediately launched XOD, the next episode was available and I watched it then.

    That episode finally displayed in the 1P folder on Tuesday. I chalked it up (in my mind) to an XOD problem, similar to rent/buy XOD programs being displayed even when the Tivo setting is "not included". Now I'm thinking the issue goes deeper than that.

    Amazon doesn't release entire seasons at once. They release one episode per week.

    I would be fine with a 24 hour refresh. Unfortunately, I am seeing nothing close to that.

    I find the exact opposite to be true. While I no longer have a Roku, my Roamio is much faster at running apps than my AppleTV or Blu-Ray players. I cannot say I have ever had an issue with apps crashing on my Roamio, while my AppleTV likes to reboot every once and a while spontaneously.

    Not sure it's how it will be for everything......but I think they felt pressure from the Netflix model.

    What are you seeing? The OP responded that Amazon added the Bosch episodes "today" and he hasn't seen them show up on TiVo.

    Do you have an example of new streaming content added to Amazon / Netflix more than 24 hours latent?

    It wouldn't necessarily surprise me to see an error in the content, but new content more than 24 hour latent would surprise me.

    Wow, I am actually pretty excited about this now. OnePass seemed kind of a novelty to me at first, but if I can bring shows that ONLY exist on streaming into it, it's now pretty frickin cool.

    Wow, does AppleTV suck? The Roamio is easily the slowest device I have for watching Netflix. The Xbox One is my go-to, with the Chromecast and FireTV Stick being options B1 and B2. The Roamio is dead last.

    The Xbox One cheats though because I just say "Xbox go to Netflix" and it's up before I even find the remote to pick my show.
