Just as a side note after you are past TiVo's 90 warranty, the extended warranty you buy through TiVo is a ONE time only warranty. You use it, it is done.
Paying monthly for the TiVo. I have a lifetime 2-tuner that I got from Best Buy and got their 4yr extended warranty. Was told it can be transferred too. This 4-tuner Premiere wasn't bought from Best Buy though. Hence the reason I am looking into these other options (TiVO & square trade)
I actually am not really a fan of extended warranties for the most part, but I figured for what I paid for the lifetime of the 2-tuner Premiere, it was a good piece of mind knowing the item will be protected for at least the period it will take to break even with the lifetime.
And I did not know about TiVo's warranty being a "one and done" type thing. Could tip it in favor of the Square Trade.
