This. If this box is sold on eBay (or anywhere else) it needs to be made very very very clear that it does NOT have Lifetime service, never had it, and quite possibly after transferring it to the buyer's own account, won't be allowed to have it. I really don't see TiVo turning down $500, but that is a possibility. OP has been told that service on this box would stop, but that seems to have fallen through the cracks. If it's being sold with full disclosure, that fact needs to be...well, disclosed. TL;DR: It is entirely impossible to pass along the LT to someone, as it does not exist. If truth is being told, the auction listing needs to state clearly that the box only is for sale, and does not come with any kind of service whatsoever.
