However, I still remain skeptical.
If there is no functional difference between the USA version and the version intended for the Canadian market then there would really be no reason to differentiate between the two on the hardware level. A printed manual isn’t really necessary and a set of manuals in multiple languages could easily be made available on the install CD.
If I am not mistaken, the TV Wonder 650 wasn’t available in Canada during the initial launch before the recall. I suppose I could be wrong about that but the early reports after the recall and re-release seem to indicate:
that’s presumably within the US market
