You've filed a support ticked with them?  They might be willing to
give you a better deal with it being so close to the end of the
warrantee period.

The first time mine failed it was a power supply issue and they
replaced that at no cost even though I was beyond the warrantee
period.  It ran for two more years before failing the second time,
when I bought a replacement HDHR3 for $99.

You're having selective memory of course.  Sometimes you get lucky,
sometimes you don't.  My wife still uses our Series 1 TiVo we got in
'99.  That same 30GB hard disk has been spinning nearly 24/7 for 12
