Question tranferrable TiVo warranty?

I got a 2-tuner TiVo Premiere from Best Buy back in 2012. I also wound up getting their 4yr extended warranty (since it was a better deal than TiVos extended warranty at $19.99). I even lifetimed it with TiVo as well.

I am now thinking of maybe replacing it with a 4-tuner Premiere. Since this 2-tuner Premiere is lifetimed and has value, I am looking to possibly sell it on ebay or Craigslist. Technically, there is about 2.5yrs left on the Geek Squad warranty. Is this transferable to the new user?

If so, how as I don't remember them taking any kind of specific information off the TiVo and simply just "adding" it to my online Best Buy account. What should I do here to maybe be able to transfer the warranty (& use this to help sell it).

From both of the plans valid in 2012:
Quote:
This Plan is transferable to another owner for the product identified by the serial number on this Plan. There are no restrictions to transfer your Plan provided your Plan is valid. There are no charges to transfer this Plan. The original purchase receipts, as well as any service repair receipts or exchange receipts, must be transferred to the new owner. Call 1-800-GEEKSQUAD or visit your nearest Best Buy store.
Note: Unless you are trying to take advantage of the cheaper prices on the Premieres (currently discounted heavily), the next generation Tivos will be coming out shortly (probably before October).

Yea, I am aware that the new line of TiVos will be out soon, but the heavy discount I am seeing on the 4-tuner Premieres ($164 at Amazon) is the real motivation here. I may wait to see what the new line offers though. will see, but its good to know the GeekSquad warranty is transferrable.
