I do not know the answer to your question, but I will point out that should you return your tivo after the lifetime transfer, they will "move" the lifetime back to your old unit.
This is the reason that the transfer does not take place until 60 days after you request it. For the first 60 days, the old tivo continues to show lifetime, and the new unit shows 1 year service.
