When they did the Guide update a few days ago, my bedroom box (Motorola 7100-2) did not work. I called, and they sent me another box (Motorola 7100-1). Since then, the original box has started working.
In spite of a similar model #, these boxes look totally different. The 2 is black with no front display except for a power light indicator and is compact. The 1 which is the replacement, is silver color and is full size.
This is the 7100-1:
This is the 2:
Is there a feature difference, or any advantage to one of these boxes over the other? Which one should I keep and which one should I send back? I have this choice because the original one is working perfectly now.
