Moxi HD DVR (two-tuner)

 

Dual-tuner cable high-def DVR includes support for YouTube, Hulu, and Netflix via PlayOn software; built-in Flickr and Rhapsody compatibility; streams digital photos, music, and video from networked PCs; multiroom viewing (with additional Moxi Mate...

Monthly fee is replaced by high upfront cost; interface and program guide take some getting used to; does not work with cable video-on-demand; no built-in Wi-Fi; PlayOn-related video services require you to run a Windows PC simultaneously; PC-based...

If you can get past the high price of entry, the Moxi HD DVR's bevy of network and Internet-enhanced features makes it a potentially worthwhile TiVo competitor.

High Def DVR: We Don't Need No Stinking Subscripti...

 

Take note DVR makers: If we get another mediocre box in the mail, we might just take a claw hammer to it. We're fed up with the steady stream of lackluster

No monthly bills. Sleek high-def interface sports nifty animations and transitions. Hard drive expandable to 2.5 TB (with an external eSATA drive) for power recorders. Commercial skips adjustable. “SuperTicker” widget displays a wealth of sports,...

Hefty entry fee. Online video chops aren't quite up to snuff. Unnecessarily complicated menus. Lackluster search functions for both cable and locally stored content. Programming schedules are displayed in a cramped vertical list instead of a friendlier...

Moxi HD DVR Reviewed

 

Moxi has been making a name for itself in the DVR industry and we can see why. There are two and three tuner configurations available and this model features a 500GB hard drive with the ability to add more storage. It permits access to Netflix,...

The Moxi supports up to three tuners, and has a 500GB hard drive, with the ability to add more storage ; The box features an attractive high-def interface with useful navigation, search and record options ; The service includes lots of Web- and...

This HD DVR is not compatible with over-the-air or satellite TV service ; CableCARD is not compatible with your provider's interactive services, like video-on-demand. More so, cable providers don't always make it easy to request and set up CableCARDs ;...

The Moxi HD DVR certainly has enough compelling features to outshine many basic HD DVRs offered by the cable providers--and it offers many of the same functions that are popular in the standalone TiVo boxes (although some features, like Netflix access,...

Digeo Moxi HD DVR

 

DISH Network and DIRECTV have poached a lot of cable customers using the allure of their premium HD DVRs. Bigger storage, more robust features, a slick user interface, no cable company to deal with—it's an easy sell most of the time. But what if you...

It’s frustrating to know that I probably haven’t done the feature set here justice. I focused on the areas in which the Moxi differs from the DVR I use and on the features I gravitated to most in a relatively short review period. While the Moxi can’t...

"Good UI. Flexible. POOR customer support."

 

We got the Moxi after tiring of the cable-company's buggy DVR - kept missing shows. The Moxi's interface is intuitive, and being able to do 3 HD recordings simultaneously affords some pretty nice flexibility - there are times when it comes in handy.

3 Tuners (although some channels don't reliably tune)

They don't really stand behind their product - they make you pay hefty fees if it breaks after 30 days. $79 for 31-365 & $149 for 365+.

Strong Potential but not yet there!!

 

Biggest problem I had was sloowww response to change channel and NOT my network issue. Main unit slow but Moxi Mate was just frustration. This was single issue which caused me to return Moxi and Mate within 30 days. Suspect system needs more processor...

Excellent Customer Service, Internet Access to manage content, Screen menu system very well done and easy to navigate, Screen Graphics look great, Cool features like Ticker, Easy setup, channel block/skip, Three tuners

Horrible basic remote doesn't even have 'Input' button and no clock on front panel. Slow response when channel surfing big problem often causing freeze up. Frequently resets for no reason. No user firmware update check...Moxi controls
