They're probably confusing it with either the Series 1s where lifetime purchased on or before January 21, 2000 was one-time transferrable, or with the Series 1s manufactured before October 2000 that can be set to be useable manually without a subscription.
If it were me, I'd want to know the TSN to check it with TiVo Customer Service to be absolutely certain about the lifetime status.
