    I'm selling a lifetime series 2 unit, but one of the potential buyers wants the TSN # to contact Tivo to verify the lifetime membership

    Is this wise?

    I know in the past, it was a "no-no" because if you had that info, you just had to call up Tivo and say "here it is" and they'd transfer the lifetime for you.

    But I'm not aware that they're still doing lifetime transfers, so this may not be an issue anymore?

    There is another thread on this very thing, just tell the person if they win the TiVo you will give them the TSN before they pay, they really can't do much even if they were to xfer the unit into their account and not pay, you would just have to call home with the TiVo using your ZIP and TiVo would xfer the TiVo back to you.
