    Well, legally, it could--but 99.99+ % of the time wouldn't. ;) It would be either financial compensation or a current replacement device with lifetime.

    This thread is not locked. It is ignored by many since there are not a lot of series 1 units still in use.

    Well, you just posted to a thread. The only other actions are starting your own thread; or sending a direct message to other users (‘Start a Conversation’), though this action doesn’t appear available for all user targets.

    Correct, Tivo has ended activations of any Series 1,2,3. So basically its only good for parts now. However, any of these that are already activated will still work.

    If they are able to move lifetime from any of the Series 1,2,3, it would be to a Premiere, Roamio, or Bolt.

    Why on earth would someone still have a Series 2 new in the box?

    I constantly am amazed at this. I just saw on Craigslist an almost new ("just used a few times") Series 2 TiVo, for $75 (the seller seemingly doesn't know that the non-lifetime box cannot, now, be re-subscribed; or is being coy on the topic).

    I think many Tivos were given as gifts over the years without service on them and the recipient never activated the Tivo or balked at the cost of the subscription and the Tivo was put in a closet or attic thinking they might use it someday. So there could be many new in the box Tivos or Tivos used for the 14-day free trial and never used again.

    I still have an S2 with Lifetime and I find YET AGAIN that even though I've signed up for email offers for tradeups, I find my account still shows that I'm not subscribed for them. I missed the summer offer because I don't visit here enough to have seen it.

    I'm going to try calling in tomorrow to see if they can't throw me a bone for a lifetime transfer deal for a Bolt.

    Interesting. it WAS not working, now it is. It was also redirecting to Problem Loading Page , which definitely doesn't work, today.

    I wonder if they were testing out changes and decided to roll back.

    Must have been server maintenance.
