General Description of the TiVo TCD540040:

TiVo's third version of the Series2 platform was the TCD540 series. These units were very similar to the TCD240 units, but had a NightLight faceplate that glowed and could be adjusted within the settings. Again, internal changes were made, largely to reduce manufacturing costs. This series completely replaced the TCD240 series.

This is the second generation TiVo remote. This remote will be compatible with all other TiVos that use Peanut-shaped remotes. This has a TiVo logo on the bottom.
