Prime Music is not supported on Roku at this time. Only purchased, AutoRip, and imported music is available. Prime Music that you've added to your personal playlists will not be shown, but the rest of the playlist will play normally.

Has this been changed?
Oh, sorry, I just put it on and hit shuffle - I never paid attention to whether it had the free Prime in there or not. Guess you need to get a Fire or something like that.

Alternately, I do know Android phones work with Prime music, you might could hook your phone up to the AVR.

Actually, thinking about it - I haven't really used Prime music absent a couple times to demo a specific song to a friend on the phone. I use Pandora for non-purchased music and Amazon holds what I purchase -- mostly because they started keeping up with it and often give me the MP3 files when I purchase the CD.

In penance, I really enjoyed Frequently Asked Questions About Time Travel. It was better than I was expecting based on seeing Anna Faris in the lineup.

I guess we are posting the Gems and Finds here, as the thread seems to only have two posts.

Has anyone recently tried Amazon via Chrome/html5? Steady 1080p best PQ via web video.

The last couple of weeks, 1080 video has been problematic. While watching anything HD, picture and sound exhibits micro pauses, happens quickly but occurs throughout a program. Only if I select SD will the program play smoothly all the way to the end. Don't know why...I've dumped Chrome's cache, but it still happens. Doesn't happen when using a set top box with the Amazon app.
Never had a problem streaming Amazon until now.

Dazed and confused over high tech.

FWIW, I've been using MS Edge. Steams both Amazon and Netflix 1080p with DD audio, using HTML 5, flawlessly.

Been enjoying Cheers which is 1080p on Amazon and merely SD on Netflix but anyone notice how like half the episodes have an annoying white bar on the right side of the picture?

Last call for Star Trek on Prime.

Shame, because the HD versions of TOS and TNG are better on Amazon than the other OTT providers.

Thanks for the heads up - I've had DS9 on my watchlist for a while - hopefully I'll be able to record at least 2 or 3 seasons before it's gone...

Who knew "flammable" and "inflammable" mean the same thing???

I use PlayOn - they usually send out a warning when shows are expiring but not this time...
