I'm in the market for a used Series 2 Tivo with Lifetime or DirecTV Tivo with Lifetime.
I know in the past there were some Lifetime transfers allowed by Tivo where the new (Series 3 or HD unit) would get the Lifetime and the old (Series 2) unit would have the service for One Year. My question is this:
If the info screen reads "Lifetime" then is it legit? In other words, if they transferred their lifetime service to a newer unit and the older unit has only a year of service on it, will it have a date or some way to discern that it DOES NOT have Lifetime?
Also, if I purchase the unit and take it home, can they somehow cancel the account (for whatever reason) or can I simply call Tivo and put my info on the account?
