Amazon unbox service

I tried Amazons unbox video store today and so far I'm disappointed. It did download video to my Tivo but at 4 bucks for a rental it's too expensive for that purpose. Netflix is a hell of a lot cheaper.

I tried syncing with my Samsumg Yeppa T9 portable player. This has video support and sports a Plays For Sure icon on the box which is what Amazon says unbox needs to sync content but it doesn't work. The player is on the latest firmware but while the device shows and sync in Media Player 11, it doesn't get detected by the Amazon unbox player. Pain in the ass.

It looks like Plays for sure is Audio and video but your device needs both icons. An audio play for sure AND a video one and the yepp just had the audio label.
