Roamio lifetime transfer question

Potential new Tivo Roamio customer here with a lifetime subscription question.

If I buy a Roamio Plus with lifetime subscription, can:

1) I sell the unit down the road with lifetime transferable to the buyer
2) Upgrade to a new unit and transfer lifetime to a new unit?

This would definitely make a difference in my buying lifetime. If Tivo comes out with a new hardware platform in 3-4 years, I'd likely want to upgrade but if I have to buy a new lifetime sub then I'd consider month to month.

I've not been able to search for and find a conclusive answer for both questions, at least not concerning Roamios. I found some lifetime transfer threads for older Tivo boxes but wanted to be sure the T&C for lifetime subs wasn't changed for Roamios. Perhaps someone with more searching prowess can.

You can do 1, but not 2.

The lifetime stays with the unit, not the owner.
