I'm selling a Tivo S3 (http://www.ebay.com/itm/Tivo-Series-...c#ht_712wt_928
), and a potential buyer asked for the service number to confirm lifetime service.
Yes, I've searched and come up with posts about giving it out after
the sale, but nothing specifically about before the sale.
My feeling is that my service number is the key to my lifetime service, and I could have my "identity stolen" :)
I know the lifetime stays with the box, but can't someone call Tivo, say they just bought a used box have it transferred to that box?
Would you give up your service number to someone on Ebay?
