I'm trying to understand the difference between the 7501 and the 5502. Both have the form factor I need, except the front panel buttons on the new 5502 are better for me. As I understand it, the 7501 has netflix and 5502 does not. Is the 7501 as "bare bones" as the 5502? Any differences in chips, etc? The 7501 is still available on close outs and I'm trying to figure out which to buy. It's a no-brainer if the electronics in the 5502 are the same.
