    What does the suffix on the model number indicate?

    For example, I have the HR44-500, but I've seen others with the 300 or 700 line of the HR44

    Thanks

    The manufacturer code.

    From the latest list I complied for them;

    -100 = Formally Thomson / RCA, then Audiovox, now Technicolor

    -200 = Samsung

    -250 = Hughes (now defunct, only used once on the HR10-250. 250 was for the hard drive size in GB.)

    -300 = Was formally Philips, now Pace Micro Technology

    -400 = Hughes (now defunct)

    -500 = Humax

    -600 = LG

    -700 = Pace Micro Technology

    -800 = NEC

    And overall there generally isn't really any difference, except for the HR20 and HR24. I'm not sure if the remote code difference on the HR20-100 is on any of their other models.

    That's not true.

    They are different: HW and SW wise. If you want facts, just look at good pictures of main-boards. Or do that by your self.
    FW/SW difference ... I could help you there if you'll give me the boards :D

    Same codes yes, but at least on the HR20-100, if it was set to an alternate code, it would only respond to the default code until it booted up, then it started accepting the alternate.

    I meant from a user perspective. The biggest difference I can think of is between the 20s, then the colorspace difference on the HR24-500, which of course doesn't affect everyone.

    Yeah, they did unification of GUI (I have old IRDs, each one has different look&feel, I would say a 'soul' :) )

    About time for the 34-100 and the 44-100, isn't it? I've got four 24-100s and they are an adventure. One won't take RF commands from the remote, two just crash occasionally and I don't really use the fourth one.
