It defies logic to even ask, but I figured what the heck... Aside from the obvious hardware diffences, what's the harm in trying to take a 4504 image and putting in in a showstopper 2000? Anyone try? I'm real keen on the way the 4504 software lets you see the info for channels above and below the current one without actually moving away from the current channel.

It doesn't boot. Unless, of course, you reimage the drive with 2xxx's software.


The harm is minimal if the machine doesn't attempt to boot, but could kill your 2xxx if it did manage to boot and tried upgrading the firmware.


You see, replay versions aren't just software upgrades; there's different (although very similar) hardware in each full numbered series (the 4xxx and 45xx being the same hardware-wise).

That's what I figured. Just the ethernet port on the 4504 alone is enough of a difference. If the 4504 software tried to access it on a 2000, I supose that could do harm. Better leave well enough alone. Thanks...
