    Is there any way to achieve the 'jump back a few seconds' feature of the Replay button while in the Netflix or Amazon video apps? I know that I can jump back on the iOS Netflix app, but that doesn't help while using the TiVo.

    I thought the Replay button worked within the Netflix app. Though pressing it a couple times will result in the Netflix thumbnail navigation bar sticking, requiring you select playback.

    I'm not aware of any way to trigger an instant replay in the Amazon app for TiVo; the Replay button needs to be avoided, since it is treated more like an Exit or Back button.

    TiVo has done a poor job of working with app developers to create a uniform navigation scheme.

    Amazon app on other platforms is far better than the Tivo version in this respect. On other platforms, replay works fine, and ffwd/rewind isn't blind - you get thumbnails like Netflix. I've removed the Amazon app from my Tivos entirely so I don't accidentally use them.

    Similar story for the Hulu app. It's light-years ahead on other platforms.
