The only device tht I am sure of outside of Roku (that is not a TV or BR player) is the Sony line of media players.....Cant remember the model numbers off the top of my head, but its soething like the N100, N200, ect....

Yes it does. I am using one. I am also running it through a Onkyo AVR. It will work fine through all video settings on the Onkyo. No pink screen. If it is to dark you can go into the menu on the Apple & fix it. I think it is under the HDMI settings. I am not near the system now or I could tell you for sure.

Are you talking a jail broken Apple TV 2? My Apple TV has no Amazon video, I can't even Airplay Amazon video from my iPad to it. I only get sound, no video...not even by mirroring at last try.

I am talking about a Apple TV I bought at BB 3 weeks ago. I don't even know what jail broke is. I am using it connected to my Onkyo AVR.

I also apologize I meant Netflix not Amazon.

WDTV Live SMP streams Netflix nicely.

The only devices that I am aware of (accordign to Amazons site) that have an app for Instant Video are Roku and Sony...outside of that youd have to either do a workaround or an HTPC....

There's TiVo also but then you have the monthly TiVo charge.

Tivo supports Amazon VOD, but not Amazon VOD prime if that's important to you.

Tivo is the only device I know that's supports Amazon VOD at 1080p/24 which is technically a download rather than a stream.. roku and BD players only play the 720p stream.

There's also google tv of course but the amazon vod UI is appalling.

OP you didn't mention game consoles but PS3 and the new wii u support amazon.
