Question about DirectTivo & moving

I have a question about my Direct Tivo's, and moving. I was hoping somebody might be able to help~~
I own 2 Direct Tivo's, a newer Philps and an older Hughes (whose hard drive has failed, but I'd like to get repaired). I am currently using the Philips under another person's Direct TV account. In about a week my wife, baby & I will be moving. Assuming we can talk the landlord into agreeing to have Direct TV on his roof, I want to set up my own account with Direct TV.
My question is, what steps do I have to take in order to use my already-owned DirectTivo's with my new Direct TV account-?
I realize that when/if I open a new account, I'll probably receive a "free" Direct TV DVR, but I'd much rather use my current DirectTivo's if possible.
Thanks for the help~!~

Hrm, well I know from experience that the DirecTivo used on your friends account needs to be "deactivated" before being able to be used on any other account. It takes a simple call from the person in charge of that account.
