    Does anyone know if a Mini will be able to access the new OTT apps if it's registered to a Premiere (which won't be able to access the new OTT apps)?

    My Pro still has 20.4.a. When I installed it almost a month ago, I do not recall seeing Amazon Instant Video in My Video Providers. The box the Pro came in had the Amazon Instant Video logo covered up. I also unchecked most of the Video Providers except XOD, YouTube, and Web Video Hotlist under Settings>Channels>My Video Providers. As I write this post, I see Amazon Instant Video and all the Video Providers (Amazon Instant Video, Xfinity On Demand, Netflix, YouTube, Hulu Plus, MLB.TV, AOL On, Web Video Hotlist) under My Shows->Video Providers. I accessed the Amazon Instant Video app and I could see the old fashion UI.

    Five minutes later, I check again under My Shows>Video Providers and Amazon Instant Video is gone even though it still is checked under Settings>Channels>My Video Providers. I find this behavior a bit disconcerting. :confused::confused::confused:

    I know this is the 20.4.5 thread but could Tivo have mucked around with My Video Provider settings in preparation for installing 20.4.5?

    Edit Update: FitzAusTex pointed me to where the Amazon Instant Video App is located under "Find TV, Movies & Videos" in Tivo Central. But I am fairly certain it was not there until very recently.

    just making sure that you're looking for the "old" amazon app under "Find TV, Movies & Videos" option in tivo central. For some unknown reason many (all?) of us who can actually access the app, can only access it from that location. It has been missing from My Shows and/or Video Providers and elsewhere since, I think, 20.4.4a.

    <sigh...> As you stated, I see the Amazon Instant Video App under "Find TV, Movies & Videos". Ty! But I'm almost sure it wasn't there until very recently. And as I said in my prior post, I had unchecked most of the "My Video Providers" and they are all checked now. Perhaps Tivo is setting up my Pro for a 20.4.5 happy ending. :D

    BTW, Austin is a favorite of mine. Great music scene.

    Where do you get the idea that Premiere will not contain the full update (i.e. same as Roamio units)? The priority sign up page specifically calls out that Premiere units are in scope for the update. Was there something mentioned in other places about Premieres not getting the full update?

    Yes, in the top thread in the Premiere sub-forum. http://www.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb/showthread.php?t=522219

    Nothing in that thread is verified. It is all complete speculation.

    Got it! Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.

    Bummer. Was considering getting a lifetime sub for 2 Premiere units, but if future capabilities are now starting to get cut off, not sure how good a value that is.

    Also Vudu appears to be only for Roamio and Mini. Click on "Requirements" on this page:http://support.tivo.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/2951/kw/20.4.5

    That's a good question. I'm betting the answer is no, simply because the Mini get's it's providers list from the host DVR. So if the host DVR doesn't have the app I don't think it would even show up on the Mini. Although maybe they'll put it in a secondary location so you can still launch it on the Mini without it being checked in the providers list?

    I am tired of all the speculation. We are coming up on 48 hrs and why hasn't the switch been thrown? I have two Roamio's Pros and 3 mini's that I am wanting to try out the new apps on.

    I dont see what all the fuss is about. Right there on that page it says


    Depending on the TiVo platform you are using, your Amazon Instant Video application has different capabilities and features. With software version 20.4.5, Roamio Series DVRs and TiVo Mini feature an improved Amazon Instant Video experience that not only lets you stream content to your device with up to 1080p video quality, but also offers access to your Amazon Prime videos!

    seems like we need to just be patient for a bit

    Tivo is obviously waiting until my Pro and Mini are updated to 20.4.5 before they throw the switch. :D

    It is kind of annoying they are delaying. I guess it's possible they might wait until all units are updated before they "throw the switch". Perhaps they will make a big deal about it with press releases and stuff on their website.

    Is anyone home to check? If it is similar to the past, you have to run a network connection to get it to show up on the menu.

    So, If you don't do it manually, it should show up during the overnight call home....
