Amazon unbox + TiVo = Apple TV Lite?

I’ve been testing the Amazon unbox service with my two TiVo’s and have to say I’m impressed so far with the ease of use and performance. I’ve rented 4 movies and TV shows so far but haven’t watched any yet. I’m expecting about the same 480p quality I get with the Xbox 360 video download service (watched Best in Show from that service last night; awesome). The only thing I’d like to see is full integration into the TiVo UI; right now I have to order on Amazon.

So if I can land movies and TV shows directly on my TiVo, and I can stream from my server music and pictures, this makes the TiVo some sort of Apple TV competitor. And I thought those guys were dead meat. Rock on, TiVo!
