    Can a series 4 or below with lifetime still be added to your account so you can transfer to and from it, or is that out like adding service to non lifetime?

    Yes, you can transfer. The only thing that you can't do is reactivate it if it was deactivated. Since a lifetime unit cannot be deactivated (except through special promotions that let you move the lifetime subscription around) those units can be moved between accounts freely.

    Once a lifetime subscription has been transferred to a new TiVo, the old TiVo will have a monthly subscription that once cancelled will render the TiVo to a parts only machine.

    Isn't adding a previously owned LIFETIME TiVo to your account different than "TRANSFERRING" Lifetime to an existing TiVo on ones account? It seems like this thread addressing two different things. IIRC, transferring a previously owned LIFETIME TiVo to your account will NOT result in any other Lifetime TiVo's on your account converting to month to month.

    We are referring to transferring programs from one DVR to another.
