Actually, they extended it to three years:

Thing is though, Tivo can't afford the $1B chargeoff that MSFT had to endure to provide this.
Assuming this just buys patience from Tivo's customers, there should be no write off....Assuming that a software fix will do it, a write off would include the replacement of hardware...which is what Microsoft had to prepare for.

Anybody that has one of the Pioneer TiVo DVD Burner units can tell you the painful stories of how long it took for a fix for that box....part of the delay was that two companies were involved...at least here, TiVo is the clear maker of both hardware and software.
