    500 represents Humax
    300 is for Philips

    For those who have seen both models, the Philips unit is smaller. I assume the software is comparable, so problems seen in the R15-500 will be seen in the R15-300.

    Just for conclusion of this thread (in addition to the other one).

    I just wanted that I got "2nd" confirmation on exactly what techNoodle posted.

    500 - Humax
    300 - Philips

    500-109a
    300-102a

    Are functionally the same.

    The Philips is smaller? As in physically size-wise? How much smaller?

    My bad... 109f was that last "version" number I have heard that has been in alpha/beta testing.

    500-109a is the last released version.

    Didn't we agree earlier today, we are all kinda in the "beta"

    Mine's a 500 as well. Does there seem to be a difference regarding whether one has problems or not based on which model one has?
