Advertisements I have been a TiVo user for years. Even helped Beta Test some software and got a little radio for helping. A few years ago I changed to an HD model. Please note I did not say upgrade. The original unit bareley made it through warranty. 5 months ago I had to replace it, back in January. I encountered heavy flack to go to the premiere, throwing away my investment of lifetime (3rd lifetime unit, one a gift) Now that replacement has died. Well since it so soon a replacement I have to pay $350.00 for a repaired unit. Just to get another taped together unit like the one I am now replacing. My first TiVo lasted through fans dying from dust build up. Now it’s just because. I paid several hundred for a battery backup surge protection for the coverage to my TV equipment and TiVo is now putting out no deposit, no return equipment. Once again, Hey upgrade to premiere, only $$$$$$$. SO now I am trying to decide if my original lifetime agreement and this trashed unit are worth the bucks to salvage and I’ll just get a DVR from my provider. Why throw good money after bad. Anyone else?
