Just a quick question, I recently sold a refurb Roamio OTA w/AIP on ebay. I contacted Tivo to start the transfer process and received a case number to give to the new owner. I've reached out multiple times to the new owner, but they won't respond and haven't completed the transfer.
Are there any issues with leaving the device on my account?
Thanks in advance!
Only issue you may encounter is if you have too many devices (I think the count is 11) on your account you can have an issue where you'll lose (temporarily) service on one or more of the devices because TiVo can't deal with that many devices on the account. As long as you aren't near that limit, then no biggie.
If you really are concerned and have multiple e-mail addresses, you can set up a secondary account of your own, transfer the device to that secondary account, and then basically forget about it. Advantage with that is that if you leave it alone (basically) but it is still checking in and getting guide updates and such, eventually you may find that TiVo offers you a discount of some sort to retire that device and purchase newer hardware to replace it with. Or, you may find that you get a one-per-customer type offer that you can take advantage of *twice* because you would have gotten the offer on both of the e-mail addresses that TiVo is aware of
