    How do you set up Tivo to get the weather and traffic info from Yahoo? And how do you set it up for Amazon movies? I did the linking with my accounts and Tivo boxes but nothing is showing up. Does it take 48 hours to apply or what?

    What TiVo model do you have?

    All of the items you are asking for need access via broadband connection, not a phone line. Make sure your box is connected via an internet connection.

    You need a Yahoo account to login for the weather, traffic, etc. All of the Yahoo info should be available under TiVo Central ----> Music, Movies & More

    It does take some time (not really sure how long) for the accounts to update, you can also do a reboot or force a connection to see if that helps speed things along.

    I have 2 Tivo DT. I did the setups online for Yahoo and Amazon and then check to see if it was available like 30 minutes later. I guess maybe I just have to wait a bit. Did it yesterday, so maybe today they will be there.
