(Replying off-list because, as you mentioned, it's a MythTV list, not a
Tivo list.)

Do you happen to know where the identifying information for the
subscription is stored?  My Tivo's hard drive is dead - the thing won't
even boot - so if the ID is stored there, then the lifetime subscription
is dead along with it.  If it's stored elsewhere, though, then eBay
might not be such a bad idea...
