    Another thread says that the 100 will only download 12a date 2/28/2007. This does not look like a 700. The 12a on a 700 was a long time ago.

    Are you sure there are two ethernet ports or is one the phone line?

    Can you provide a picture of the back?

    Edit
    If in fact this has two ethernet ports, then the BCM7038 has undergone a major upgrade and is probably no longer called BCM7038.

    So what's the temp if there is a built in fan?

    And what did you mean you wanted to "swap your silver"?

    He obviously has a silver one at home and wishes he could have a black one for at home.

    Two ethernet, eh? You only need one to hook up to the network for media connection to your home PC. The second might be a pass through so you can add a home theater PC to your equipment rack and have internet access passed through from the HR20.

    Or maybe it's for... Come on, DirecTV. Be more creative.

    My thought: it's for VOD and MRV. One port is for downloading video-on-demand, and the other is to connect a second HR20 for multi-room-viewing. Wouldn't that be cool? :)

    OK, how would you set up your IP/ports to do that?
    Are we going to have to subnet the house now?
