    is there anything I can do to expedite the showing of the apps when apps is selected from the menu. it takes an extremely long time (with a blank screen) before all the apps icons show so I can select one. then, when I can finally select amazon icon, it takes a while to finally display anything.

    is this normal operation?

    I have even set amazon prime as a favorite app but it takes a long time to gain access to even that app icon.

    I have seen this when the TiVo has been in Standby or powered off. It only happens the first time.

    I have the same problem, but it has done this since the first day with the Roamio. Still does it. If I access Amazon Prime movies from my pc, it is almost immediate. While watching a movie, you can fast forward and pause, and that too is immediate. On the Roamio, you can do both, but it takes quite a bit of time for the movie to be resume. When you exit a movie, it is difficult to return to the now playing selection screen. Easier and faster, to hit tv and then then return to the app. It has done this on both cable services I have used. I have I have a fast internet speed, and no other devices using the service at the same time. Also connects directly by cat5 cable. Wifi is available but did not try it as, it would be slower than cat5. Is tivo coming out with an improved app for prime or is this it? Thank you.

    Did you follow the advice of the post just above yours? Amazon writes their own app, not Tivo.

    The program works but slowly. The app on my TV and oppo dvr work much faster. Seems amazon is not doing much for tivo. Still have my series two tivo and have had most of the newer ones up till this Roamio, a couple of years ago, apps are the key to smooth operation, and if tivo can not go to amazon and ask for better perhaps time to move on.
