    • I have a Tivo Roamio Plus that I no longer need. Id like to sell it, but it was originally on product lifetime, then changed to Temporary Service (as a gift from a Tivo exec.). Its not hooked up any longer and I dont know the status, and if the last status is connected to my name and account. Anyhow...Does this have any value to someone? I also have the Mini with LT, but confused if it has value. Here is what My Account says on TIVO website> Thank you for any assistance.

    I can’t be sure but I think that temporary service from a TiVo exec is not transferable but also don’t know why they would do that if it already had lifetime on it. Probably to prevent you from selling it after they gave it to you.

    I think all minis have lifetime and can be sold and transferred to anyone.

    Do I recall correctly that someone once posted a similar free TiVo service question here and TiVo_Margret saw it and posted for the person to contact her, and she would "fix" matters so that the box could be transferred (very nice of her).

    Probably not a good idea to post TSNs on the web

    I think I mistakenly said it had LT. actually that was another tivo I had. This one has just temp service.
    Thank you

    TiVo Serial Number, for the TiVo box--the unique, 15-digit code that appears on the box label and identifies the box (like a car VIN).

    Yes you are correct about Tivo_Margaret, but she had left the Community by the time I posted, so was unable to get her input.

    I’m thinking about everything, and I need to identify which mini I have...
    By the way, I am a big lover of Tivo for many years and I’m a 72 year grandmother.
