So CPU, RAM, flash and EEPROM are the SAME ?
Why the model name is changed ?
We saw before HR20 been manufactured with 300 GB HDD and SAME model came with 320 GB drive without changing a name.
We've been through this in the past. There is no hardware difference between HR21-100, HR22-100, R22-100 and THR22-100 except the following:
- Each device is identified in EEPROM as the correct model number.
- HR22 and THR22 have a 500GB drive while HR21 and R22 have a 320GB drive.
- THR22 has different silkscreening on the front panel and a TiVo sticker.
- ...and obviously, THR22 runs the TiVo middleware while all the others run the DIRECTV middleware.
Why the model number change? You'd have to ask DIRECTV.
