Manage your NetFlix and Blockbuster rentals, and Download from Amazon Unbox – from your TiVo

People continue to create great applications for TiVo’s Home Media Engine interface. Now two of them have merged – the Doug Swallow’s Unbox HME application, which I posted about recently, has been combined with the Movie Rentals HME app. Now you can manager your Netflix and/or Blockbuster snail mail rental queues as well as purchase downloads from Amazon Unbox for your TiVo. You can even watch video previews on TiVoToGo enabled units. (So Series2, but not yet Series3.) You download this and run it on your PC (or Mac, etc) like other HME apps. You can also integrate it as a plug-in with Galleon if you’re already using that.

Note that if you don’t need the Netflix/Blockbuster features, you can still use just the Unbox HME app.
