The damn thing rebooted itself again this morning so I called TiVo.  I rarely - as in I cannot remember another time - buy extended warranties but I did for this TiVo when I bought it 2 years ago. I don't even remember the thought process behind the decision but I am sure glad I did.

I called today and told them I wanted a replacement.  No problem.  I could either send the broken one back and then get a new one OR pay a deposit (equal to the price of a new one), get the new one, send the broken one back and then get a full refund.  I chose door #2. They pay shipping.  I think I paid $30 for the warranty - 3 year.  Well worth it.

I will lose some movies that I saved but, if I haven't watched them by now, maybe they aren't worth saving.  And, I also sacrifice the scheme I had to replace this one with a new Roamio but, I can still do that if/when the new one dies.

Still, I think I came out pretty good on this thing all things considered.
