    I may have to send my TivoHD back to Tivo to repair an HDMI output problem. Is Tivo still charging a flat fee and sending an refurbished unit? If so what is the repair costs? I would trash the unit and go with a new one if they would transfer my Lifetime service.

    You need to call Tivo and ask if they will even repair an older unit. You can also contact Weaknees and DVRUpgrade to ask about repair prices. Personally, I just use one of the other Tivo outputs. I have given up on using HDMI with a Tivo.

    If it is still under warranty, the cost is $50. I have no idea what they'd charge for out of warranty repairs or if they would even do it.

    E mailed Tivo and they said it would be $149 to send a replacement and transfer the Lifetime to it. They said if I bought a new Premier they couldnt transfer it. Since the componet output works fine I will just switch it over to that when the HDMI finially goes. My receiver has inputs for that and will send it to the TV over HDMI. The receiver converts all the video and sound to HDMI for sending to the TV. Works really nice.
