Yes, the hard drive was 250GB.
I think it (and all of the Tivo-based boxes) was manufactured in Mexico by Solectron to a Tivo design. The -250 refers to the size of the hard drive.
I think that was "proved" when the failed inspection tag found in an HR-20 had Tivo printed on it.
Hehehe, that may be true!!!
I've suggested to Milominderbinder2 that he add this to one of his excellent FAQ threads.
How about if I put them into the FAQ?
I could have a link and your lookup notes as well as the links in the Information Resources Forum FAQ?
What do you think?
Sounds good to me! I just thought it might be easier to find if it was a sticky...but this is one step closer!
This article suggests that Thomson is only selling the RCA electronics ACCESSORIES line.
Hmm...now I'm confused..
They originally bought the accessories part of RCA, but recently agreed to buy the consumer A/V business as well: http://www.forbes.com/feeds/ap/2007/10/16/ap4226483.html.
After PM's with the OP, I will add this to the FAQ but...
What does -250 mean, as in HR10-250?
Are we missing any others?
-250 meant 250gb hard drive. Never was a manufacturer code.
The bigger question will be if Sony ever starts manufacturing STBs for DIRECTV again. Will the Manufacturing code be -900 or will they go back to the -250? Hmmmm.
So Sony made the HR10?
Oops, I think it was hughes .. which means -250 makes no sense whatsoever. Probably a different designator because it was a TiVo and that was the only way to make it fit into the coding scheme.
No wonder I do not like my new HR20-100 as much as I like my 2 -700's. I do not like anything with RCA attached to it. Every piece of electronics I have owned that was RCA turned to a pile of garbage within 5 years. I have radios that turn on by themselves, VCR's that failed after 1st year, TV's that the tube was blown after 3 years.....................
Your manufacturers codes listing is now a part of the FAQ's.

What Do The Model Numbers Mean?
Michael, thank you for your work!
Craig, I concur with Doug, I think the -250 was not Sony. I think it was Hughes.
It was. Look on the back of the HR10 and you will see the text "MFR Code: 400".
Thanks Milo! I really appreciate it!
