    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.

    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! :)

    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.

    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.....................

    Michael,

    Your manufacturers codes listing is now a part of the FAQ's.

    Here is the link:

    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".
