    Think of a paid up TiVo like a record player, you can take it anywhere you want, the only limitation with any HD TiVo is cable cards and or internet if needed, and SP may change, but that your problem not TiVos problem, have fun with your TiVo just as you would with a purchased DVD, you can lend it, move it, sell it, or whatever, as stated some features may not work when a TiVo is moved, like MRV etc., but you can watch anything that already on the TiVo and record if any TV ch that are available to you.

    Similar to what others have said, I can vouch for the fact that I have TiVos for my own use in two different houses, which are in two different zip codes and are connected to two different cable companies' services. Not only has it never been a problem, but TiVo seems to have gone out of their way to make the web site work in this situation - the online interface knows that you have multiple channel lineups, and uses the correct one for the TiVo you are scheduling programs on.

    What is a "record player" and how many cable cards does it need?

    It is a complete product as is a TiVo with lifetime, if the TiVo is a HD unit it may need a cable card for non OTA channels. Oh well....

    It's actually very relevant because it shows that Tivo doesn't care if the same account holder has different boxes (including some that were purchased on MSD) in different locations. If the used Tivo buyer never actually moved the Tivo box on to his own Tivo account, then the situation looks to Tivo exactly like the account holder is maintaining 2 Tivos at different addresses.

    You're reading too much into his statement and seeing what you want to see, not what he said.
