What is the difference between a transmission and a gearbox?

There is very little difference at all and it is a bit like “What’s the difference between a square and a rectangle” A gear box is specifically either a manual or automatic transmission that has alternate gear ratios where as a transmission is any device that transmits power. e.g. differential, gearbox or even tailshaft can fit into this category.
