Has anyone had any success launching into an actual Amazon Prime selection from Reelgood app? For Amazon Prime it always takes me to the launch point of Amazon Prime instead of to the title I try to launch. Reelgood works perfectly for launching directly into Netflix and HBO NOW selections, but no luck with any Amazon Prime selection so far.

From the TiVo app itself launching into Amazon Prime selections was buggy as well. I think it only worked when Amazon Prime app was completely closed before attempting to launch into a title. But even that workaround doesn't work with Reelgood for me.

I am seeing the same thing. I suggest you use their feedback form on their website. They have responded (and resolved) some items that I sent it in.

ReelGood worked on my first try for me, opened up to the show on Amazon.

TiVo so far hasn't worked for me to do the same.
Can you give me a specific example of a show that worked from ReelGood? So far I've tried about 10 different shows over 3 different series and none worked. Thanks.

Reelgood does the same thing for me as the TiVo app. All it does is go to the home screen of the Amazon app. The same thing happened on my Shield TV with Reelgood.

I've yet to see reelgood or the TiVo app go the the actual show page in the Amazon app..

I've tried at least fifteen shows between both of them.

I bet if you send a bug report to both companies, ReelGood with fix it much sooner :)

It worked for me with "Upload".
I've tried it multiple times with Upload, since I am in the middle of watching it. It still hasn't worked for me. Every evening I have been trying several Amazon shows with it. And it always just opens up to the Amazon home screen.

Note that Reelgood takes me to the proper Amazon prime launch point from a browser. I haven't tried installing app on my phone yet, but I suspect that would work fine too.

Apparently direct access is still working for some though...
I think the issue is with Amazon's deep link support in their 10 foot interface apps. Going through ReelGood may help light a fire under Amazon though, who knows.

I also replicated what you said in the opening post with an episode of Bosch. Force closing the Amazon app allowed the link from TiVo to initiate episode playback. Normally it just goes to the home screen, which is even worse than the episode landing page the DVRs did for me.

FYI, with Reelgood app running on Fire Stick 4K it direct launches and starts playing Amazon Prime Video titles. HUGE improvement over TiVo Stream 4K. Fire Stick 4K also has a number of other advantages already just after a few minutes of trying it out.

How did you get that app on Fire OS? I didn't think it was available. Did you side load it? I never got into that stuff.
