    Would someone please look on the back of their unit, find the FCC ID on the label on the back and post it here?

    Thanks.

    I've run into this before. I'd assume 6NHMM00BR15 is the FCC ID yet I can't find that one on the FCC's DB. I've run across some where I cannot find the whole ID but find it by searching through the grantee ID. With "6NH" as the grantee ID I still can't find anything. For some reason I don't think the gov's search is completely working.

    I also own an R15-300, mine has the same info as waughoo posted before . I know what an FCC ID is and I can tell you for sure that there is no FCC ID # on this unit.:nono2:


    edit: If there is no FCC ID # isn't it against FCC rules to connect this device to a phone line?

    I believe the FCC ID is 6NHMM00BR15, I just can't et the munged up FCC site to find it. I may have to look up the memeber that originally provided the site link and see what he/she knows. Fergg, was that you?

    You probably already know this: according to the FCC website the first three characters is the grantee code, if you search for '6NH' the result is that there are no grantees on file, that's why I think the FCC ID is invalid.
    Anyway, we will know the truth some day. :lol:

    Correct. I'm more questionable about the search DB that site uses. I have more than one instance that when I search for the FCC ID, Grantee and the remining ID #'s it doesn't get a hit. Yet if I search on the Grantee and then browse through their list I can find the same FCC ID. PITA. Don't know how to resolve this at this point.

    In all truthfullness about this 30 second slip... it's no big deal. It's fun for about the first 2 days to sit there and test it out, but I've already gone back to just fast fwd at 3 times speed, hit the pause when i see the show and hit the 6 sec jump back 2-3 times and it is just perfect. No real gain with the slip, serious. Have a good one.

    I'm glad someone finally got you the ID.

    What does that do for you. If you could look it up?

    The contents of the FCC site include pictures, external and internal. It also includes block diagrams which highlight all of the particular chips (major chips) in the unit. We could then compare the block diagram of the R15-500 to that of the -300 and see if it has a different processor, different memory or other chips.

    Ah, so we can finally put the "are they the same" debate to rest.

    Wolf, according to the FCC grantee search page definition of the grantee code, the code should always begin with an alphabetic character, not a number, and all the codes seem to follow that pattern. That makes me think that the "6NM" cannot be correct.

    I have tried searching the FCC DB every way I can think of, but I can only find the Humax version of the box. However, I did find what I believe to be the Philips universal remote that goes with the R15. I even did a search for all Philips applications from 1/1/05 through 12/31/05 and no luck! I also tried putting Directv in the description field and got the Humax R15 as well as the various D11 versions, but still no luck on the Philips box.

    Can anyone with the 300 box send in a photo of your Philips R15 FCC label?

    I went through those same types of searchs with no luck. However, there is some problem with their search logic. I have a wireless LAN card that I cannot find using the entire FCC ID. To find it I have to search on the grantee code and then page through that grantee's devices. The LAN card is there with the correct FCC ID, but their search page doesn't find it.

    Thanks to some pics provided by a member here and after a bit of searching it appears not all SAT receivers/DVRs require a FCC ID. Looking through the UL search DB I did find this info on the -300.

    PHILIPS FRANCE CONSUMER ELECTRONICS DIGITAL NETWORKS E247870
    DIV SET TOP BOXES SURESNES
    51 RUE CARNOT
    BOITE POSTALE 301
    92156 SURESNES CEDEX, FRANCE

    Digital Satellite Receiver, Model(s) D10, D10-300 (may be followed with 2 suffixes indicating non safety relevant features), D11 (may be followed with 5 suffixes indicating non-safety relevant features), LR15 (may be followed with 5 suffixes), R15 (may be followed with 5 suffixes indicating non-safety relevant features).

    Looking through the FCC DB here's what I've found.
    • R15-500 manufactured by Humax has a FCC ID
    • R15-300 manufactured by Philips does not.
    • D10s manufactured by Samsung have a FCC ID
    • D10s manufactured by Philips does not.
    • D11s manufactured by Humax and by Samsung have a FCC ID
    • D11s manufactured by Philips does not.

    Well, there should functionally be no difference that would warrant one requiring FCC ID and another not requiring it.

    Both must be compliant with Part 15 rules, but I don't know if it requires filing with the FCC and obtaining an FCC ID number to satisfy that (but I think it does).

    Also, both contain an RF modulator (channel 3/4), and again that may or may not require certification, I don't know (and it may also fall under Part 15, not sure).

    But if it is required for one, then it would also be required for the other. Therefore, it is either not required for either and Humax and Samsung are doing it voluntarily, or it is required and Phillips is non compliant.

    If you can glean any other interesting info from those pics please let us know. Mainly, I'm interested in whether there are any substantial differences that might make one preferable to the other.
