Aside from the great modle number it appears to be a Philips DSR6000 with a new faceplate. The remote controls apparently are duplicates and interchangable. Then I activated with directTv they had to enter it into their system as a Philips to get it to take.

The system comes with an single 40gb drive formatted an unexpanded 35 hour image. I have tried swapping backups of the drives between units, and they work fine. I have not marrried a second drive to the new system yet.

One other usefull piece of info I found was that direct TV is carging for tivo usage per ACCOUNT not per UNIT. One DirecTivo or tive, as long as they are on the same account, the cost is $10 total for the the tivo service.

http://www.orbitsat.com is still offering the units for $150 for existing direcTV customers, $99 for new customers.
