    The trick for all of this is if they have universal search across Amazon and VUDU like they already have with Netflix, Hulu and guide. Then things get interesting.

    Anyone remember the timing with the last update between priority page going live and the first wave up updates? I feel like it was something like 7-10 days?

    Search already includes Amazon Instant Video, so one would assume that when they add access to Amazon Prime, that will be included also.

    I have to believe that they were devoting a large chunk of their programming resources to that conversion for an extended period of time. Now that it is finally done, they seem to have the resources to devote to much needed improvements.

    I hope the Premiere isn't left out for the Amazon Prime update as that is the main box I want it on.

    Sounds like the Premiere will be left behind for something... If I were to guess, I would say Vudu rather than Amazon Prime.

    Wonder if it is vudu streaming only or they will allow file downloads like Amazon?

    I think it is more likely the other way around. Maybe that's why it took years for Amazon Prime to show up on TiVo. Maybe only the new hardware can handle it.

    Since getting our XBONE last year, we have all of the VOD we need. And with TiVo hooked up to it, I'm not that excited. I only added the Mini to the priority list, so that I'm able to get Amazon Prime on it.

    I think the takeaway here is that the next software update won't be until Spring... slightly refreshed Mini with RF remote is tracking for March. Not sure if that correlates or not.

    It would be really great if they could limit the third party items in search to subscription availability only, as opposed to purchase/rent. If I see Netflix or Hulu by a show or movie then I know that if I subscribe to those services then I can watch that show. But if they show Amazon I don't know if it's Prime or just rent/purchase. It would be cool if they could limit the Amazon part of the search to Prime only, or at least have a separate icon that's Prime. That way the user knows that the item is only available for purchase/rent or is also available to prime customers for free.

    I suspect the Amazon Download will go away all together on the Roamio DVR's - they have already removed it from all new units being delivered.

    So, I would expect the answer to your question is - No

    I have a new Roamio, and download several Amazon tv shows to it every week.

    I am guessing the Premiere will not get any of the new Over the Top apps.

    Now I need to decide what to do with my Premiere. It is currently in the Media room, but if I really start using VUDU, that will be a limitation. I might swap with the Mini in the bedroom.

    What I really should do is sell the Premiere and replace it with another Mini - it would save me the $5 a month cable card charge for that box. I just like the extra storage space for archived content.

    I'm reluctant to go back to the well and ask... I had assumed all three platforms would receive. My first thought had been stuff related to streaming. But, hmmmm. For me personally, I have Minis only at the prime viewing locations, so that's what I'd need.

    I didn't say it was impossible to access Amazon on brand new Roamio's, I said they removed it from the brand new image.

    As I understand it, Amazon download is missing closed captions and new FCC regulations require closed captions - thus the product is being retired by Amazon in favor of streaming.

    Amazon Downloads are a legacy product and I suspect the service will be discontinued entirely before too long.
