does any know what the account status number mean ?
Depends on the number.
Usually the only way to see the number is to look on the system information page, and it'll be displayed there, along with an explanation.
5roduct Lifetime Service
3:Account in Good Standing
There are some other, more obscure ones, but those are the ones you're most likely to see.
If you're looking to buy a used one, 5 means you don't have to pay TiVo anything for the Service, a previous owner already made a lump sum payment for permanent service for that machine (if it dies and can't be fixed the lifetime subscription dies with it)
3 means that the last time the unit contacted TiVo it was told the monthly subscription payment had been made within the last 30 days.
8 means whoever used to make the monthly payments stopped.
A 3 may turn into an 8 the next time the unit contacts TiVo.
1: is a unsubscribed, either new, or hasn't been used for some time.
4: is a demo/complimentary/test subscription. Ordinary support does not want to help with those, and cannot transfer that status to new hardware, or add such a unit to a normal account.
There is an initial demo mode, not sure of the number.
Same for the TiVo Basic the Toshiba and Pioneers some with. I think that is 6,7, or 9.
