I was just looking at the manual for the PTR-R2210 and noticed what appears to me to be a lot of similarity in functionality between it and the PVR-M6620N. As I see them, the differences boil down to:
- Size (and 3.5" vs 2.5" HDD, so max capacity)
- Analog and ATSC tuners vs 2 ATSC tuners
- Wireless optional vs built-in
- 1080i vs 1080p output
- HDMI 1.1 vs HDMI 1.3
- M6620N has an LED display
- M6620N has faster CPU, more RAM
So obviously the M6620N has better specs, but the R2210 is available for a pretty killer price at Digital Connection right now.
Can anyone confirm that menu-wise, playback-wise, ATSC-recording-wise, the units are similar in functionality? Does the R2210 also have the IMS Internet access capabilities of the M66xx units?
For me, it looks like the R2210 might make a great compliment to the M6620N in my den. I need the ATSC PVR functionality, otherwise, any of a number of other units would work too...
Thanks in advance...
