Advertisements I am about to declare my Series 3 (lifetime) unit DEAD as it resets and/or freezes on a daily basis. Not being a very intense user I was planning to buy a Premiere or Roamio on eBay with lifetime for around $150. For about $30 I can get a two years Square Trade warranty (doubled by my CC) as an inexpensive bit of insurance if something comes up that I cannot fix myself. However I was wondering how Square Trade works such a warranty request. I expect they will want me to ship them the unit and then likely send me a replacement as old Tivos are not likely to be fixable. I assume that the replacement that they would want to send to me wouldn't have lifetime service so could I insist on a refund of my original purchase price or would I be stuck with a similar unit without lifetime.
