I have downloaded quite a few Amazon videos and have never had a single issue.
Yes, it's extremely rare that I've had an issue with Amazon downloads on my TiVo...
^ Neither have I, but all of them were in SD.
Thanks for the feedback. Actually I'm relieved that others are able to get their Amazon movies with few problems.
I've had this problem on 3 different Tivos. Interestingly the only time I didn't have a problem was with a SD movie.
I re-watched the movie and the glitches are definitely repeatable, so I assume they're in the file. I'm guessing the problem is that they (Amazon and Tivo) don't have enough data checking and error correction on the data stream. I wonder if the fact that I downloaded at 8 PM on a Sunday night (must be peak watching time?) had an impact on this.
Also, I've never had a problem with VUDU movies (on my PS3), but I've only watched two of those.
If anyone cares, I used kmttg to look at my Tivo and it tells me that the Amazon HD movie has a bitrate of 4.44 MBps. For comparison, a network TV show will have 15-18 MBps
