Mine says HR24-500 HW2.2, and it is only on top.
I think most of the H24 seals were broken as well, seems like from their internal testing.
Have to keep that in there.. that cabnet is usualy close to 100 degrees..
Oops, I had my notes backwards ... the Rev 2.2A label is on the back panel, above the phone jack. The top has the same label you have, HR24-500 HW2.2.
Mine isn't missing any rubber feet, but the chassis itself is warped a bit so all four feet don't sit flush on flat surface.
i'm guessing these where the first gen models,a nd when they found issues, they literally went in and changed parts for them... Once they get us through with testing, I have a feeling they'll send final specs to manufacture, and then they will start actually building them.. Either that, Or they have decided they are happy with the hardware now, and they sent specs to manufacture, and are sending them to us to work on the first gen of software for when they hit the market....
Mine was as well. The void sticker was half way off when I took it out of the box. Must have been at last minute change before they shipped the units?
That or maybe they have been tinkering with them in their internal testing.
Been analyzing that photo. Besides the CPU, the other indicator would be any Entropic stuff. Yep, I know you can't tell us!
Just thinking out loud ...
Been following every Entropic release and analyst call for a while and on the last call they upped the DirecTV MOCA reference.
With the history of SWM and Entropic, been theorizing for a while that they're going with MOCA 1.x with Entropic:"There is no announced launch plan in terms of specific timelines from either Comcast or DIRECTV, although they both committed to using MoCA into networks, they made public statements around that and both have announced and intend to deploy multi-room DVR in 2010, there’s really no public information out there beyond that general timeline."
As far as memory, couple of those other chips look like memory chips, which when looking at the speed may give a clue to the Broadcom chipset.
While I should put my money on the BCM7400B (same as Dish 922), I'm sticking with the BCM7335. It just can't be the BCM7342, it's just too new, and they could get the MOCA from Entropic.
Yes, all confidential and you can't say ... but was just thinking about it, and the spec speculation thread is locked ...
Has anyone determined the size of the hard drive? I couldn't tell from the photo Tom posted.
I have not confirmed, nor done any testing to find out. I have heard elsewhere that it is 500GB.
My understanding is that it's still a 500GB drive.
Early hints were 500GB. I have set a bunch of recordings over the next two days to help extrapolate real-world recording capacity.
Looking for HR24 shots. Anyone got any like this of the HR24 yet?
I have a lot of pictures Spanky. I just need to bring them into Pshop to remove dust/scratches/etc. I will have that done by this weekend, but if you are in a hurry I can "step it up". (I did from the FedEx box on down to hooked up)
I can wait. I prefer to have one that does not need any touch up so I can use it in the DECA pdf mixed environment layout.
It doesn't look too bad on top of the glossy AM21 (sorry about the glare).
Wow, Yours came in silver? I want one! :lol:
That HR20 has always looked a bit out of place with the black equipment.
The HR20 finally (!) has a worthy competitor.
