Question Transfer Lifetime service to new unit?

I saw a post that mentioned something about transferring lifetime service to a new unit.

The question is if my current Series2 does break, if I take it out of commission, does Tivo allow the lifetime subscription to transfer to a replacement unit?

At this stage if the Tivo is indeed shot, it's probably cheaper to just get a new one, assuming service transfer is allowed.

Back when tivo came out there was confusion about what lifetime meant, tivo means that of the unit, not you.

If you subscribed way back when, they allowed on transfer, if you have a series 2, you have purchased way past the point of no return.

In other words, no transfer, although you can call the customer support, let them try to trouble shoot your problem, in some cases (if it is there sw's fault) they will authorize a transfer.

If the unit is replaced while under warranty by the manufacturer or retailer then TiVo will transfer the Lifetime over to the new unit.

Does that mean if you have a Tivo Series one you can upgrade to a Series two without repurchasing your lifetime membership?

Only if you are the person who originally purchased lifetime for the series 1 before the cut-off date (IIRC Jan 2000).

[Additionally there was an unrealated limited time offer right after the series 2 units came out where anyone with lifetime on a series 1 could transfer that lifetime to a new series 2.]

Best thing I ever did was transfer my Series1 $199 lifetime service to my new Series2 with this deal.
