    No different than BestBuy, only they go to four years and charge more. They only cover one replacement. Which is the norm for an extended warranty anyway. And I have the BestBuy four year extended warranty on my Roamio Pro. But it will also come in handy if I sell it in a year or two. My Roamio BAsic has the three year extended warranty from TiVo on it.

    I did not understand your response. Are you stating best buy is cheaper and if so do they transfer lifetime?

    fwiw, I bought TiVo's extended warranty on a 2-tuner Premiere back in 2010; never ended up needing it. Didn't bother purchasing the warranty on another Premiere (now sold) and current Roamio Plus and haven't had issues with any machine.

    TiVo will transfer the lifetime if I get a warranty replacement through BestBuy.

    I'm not certain that's true.

    I agree. :)

    I think it's covered under this portion of the user agreement.

    A Product Lifetime subscription lasts for the lifetime of your TiVo device (not your lifetime), and may not be transferred to another TiVo device (except in cases of warranty repair or replacement under applicable warranty terms).

    Has anyone had an out of warranty replacement of a Lifetime unit recently?

    If so, what did TiVo charge to exchange and transfer lifetime. I believe I have seen posted in the past where they charged $150 for the unit and $199 to transfer Lifetime.

    If it was a Premiere, what did you end up receiving as a replacement?
