    Does the THR22 allow the user to saved recorded files to their PC? If not, I don't see a real reason to buy it.

    No, the THR22 does not work with the TiVo Desktop Software.

    Are you sure? I thought it could stream photos and music from your computer...

    I know you can stream media to the TiVo, but didn't hear any intention of transferring shows off the THR22. I guess I'll have to research, but as it stands right now, there's no way to pull shows off the TiVo using the TiVo Desktop Software.

    Excuse my ignorance, what is the difference between the AM21 and AM21N?

    They're essentially the same...

    My AM21 has a glossy finish, my AM21N does not.

    In other words, AM21N(o frills). Thanks, I was just curious. Looking to add one for an HR24 and this was the first post I had come across with the distinction; but you're saying one is not technologically superior than the other.

    Not that I've found.

    Here's a link to the First Look for the AM21N.

    You forgot to mention...


    The AM21N has a contemporary, sleek matte finish designed to integrate seamlessly with today's quality electronics in style!™ ;)

    I believe the plug on the attached power cable on the AM21N is Non-polarized (C7), while the plug on the attached power cable on the AM21 is most definitely polarized (C7P).

    Are you talking about the blades on the socket end, or the plug on the unit end? The pics on the first look show a unidirectional socket on the AM21N.

    You will not be able to use TiVo desktop to offload programming to a PC as you can with standalone TiVos.

    The internal componentry is different but equivalent and the outside of the N model is matte black, while the AM21 is gloss black.

    There is no real difference in functionality.

    The plug at the end of the attached cable.

    I'm sorry but your friend is incorrect. I can cay with 100% certainty that to use the TiVo Desktop software, you need a Media Access Key for the receiver. The THR22-100 does NOT provide a Media Access Key.

    Remember when the first standalones hit the market, you couldn't shut those off either. It took a software update, to get that one fixed. Used to drive me crazy, seeing the unit on, all of the time.

    I agree with my blue shirted friend. I haven't tried it but some people whom I completely trust tell me that you can't do it.

    Does the new THR22 have the dual 30 minute Tivo buffers or the 2 hour Directv buffers?
