Tivo Says No Amazon HD Yet

TiVo has quickly silenced claims of HD Amazon videos coming to its DVRs by issuing a response to SlashGear. The electronics company claims that the appearance of a menu for HD content from Video on Demand was simply an example of "testing" interface options and wasn't an indication of any near-term plans. The link should already have been pulled, a spokesperson says, though the company doesn't explicitly deny any plans.

"At this time we have nothing to announce, and don't expect to making an announcement on this subject in the near future," the official says.

While dampening expectations, the company is currently one of the only to directly support Amazon's video purchasing and rental service beyond computers and so is the only immediate home for any HD video features from the online retailer.
