Best way to clear TIVO

I am going to be selling my 2 Tivo HD's. They will have lifetime on them and I want to clear and delete everything. They no longer have cable cards. If I hook them up to a spare TV what is the best way to clear them out? Will it affect the Lifetime service?

As WhiskeyTango said CADE it will take a couple of hours Lifetime is tied to the TiVo Service Number and will be preserved. If you have the DVR tied to Netflix or Amazon account be sure to go online and deactivate them.

Thanks for the heads up on the Netflix accounts. Never even thought of that.
