    Any of the mini models will work, and minis don’t require a subscription.

    If you purchased used on eBay, make sure the mini is not cable company owned. TiVo can not transfer those to your account.

    Thanks, I see many mini for sale and they state that they have lifetime service.

    Sellers sometimes state it that way so that buyers know they don’t have a fee.

    Almost all Minis have lifetime service included, except the early models, when they first came out.

    But correct me if I’m wrong, even the earliest minis, if they did have a service fee on them in the past, can still be fee free when activated online under a new account.

    I think it was $199 for lifetime on those early Minis. Now, Its included.
