Thank you os much! That makes sense. I appreciate the time you took to explain that to me!!ZeoTiVo said:the 140 did come up in relation to model numbers, and classicsat did acknowledege that. I have no idea why mick66 was in such a bad mood when replying (Disclaimer - I have been in same said bad mood when replying sometimes - no stone casting by me )
that out of the way - classicsat was wrong in his look at the model 140 vs 540.
the 140 model came out before the 240 for a short lived period. One difference I know about is that the 140 has USB 1.1 hardware in it and that will be NOTICEABLY slower than a 540 or 240 model.
The 240 model in fact is more or less the same as the 140 but it has USB 2.0 hardware. I personally would not get a 140 model.
the 540 came out more recently and was designed solely to save on maufacturing costs, thus it has the cheaper USB hardware that has to rely on the CPU to support the USB processing.
that is all that is in that story, no need for a fuss about it.
PS - I have a Toshiba RS TX20 that has worked very well for me (it has same transfer speed as a 540 model) and is in fact basically a 540 with a DVD added in, but with slightly better parts as specced by Toshiba. I maybe burn 3 DVDs a month on it though and have seen reports of people who burn more frequently running into porblems - I would not call the reports widespread however
check the TiVo with DVD forum here for more info
It will. The physical hardware is the same, as fas as installing the Twinbreeze bracket goes.killme said:I know that the 240080 model has a slot to fit the Twinbreeze bracket, which I really like. The 24004A model I bought required two nuts on the bottom side to keep it held down. I wish they didn't take that out.
