Advertisements Well I agree. In fact 1 year is not very much, especially for an expensive item (like a cable Edge with lifetime or some $10,000 TV). And now Tivo does not offer extended warranties. Only "plus" would be after the 90 days I think you have another 9 months with $49 exchange. So "kinda" one year warranty though after 90 days you'd be out $49. Regardless with uncertainty of future for cable card devices and even OTA (though OTA should last 5 more years at least) and Tivo as a DVR company at all, I doubt I would purchase any Tivo DVR for much more than $250-350, including lifetime service. I'm assuming that $49 exchange for the additional 9 months is still valid with all the changes, that was warranty, not the continual care for lifetime devices.
