Despite the fact that I am very nearly the perfect customer for a DVR, I have held off the purchase of one, a decision mostly revolving around the monthly subscription fee versus the relatively few amount of things I avidly watch on television. With the brand new, subscription free, MOXI HD DVR sitting on my entertainment shelf, all that has changed ... I get to watch what I want and when I want to with a much better picture quality than provided by Comcast hardware (see below) without tacking on more costs to the ever rising price of having cable in the first place.

First off, the MOXI HD DVR is very attractive box and came with a complete set of cables, many of which you may not even touch if you are using the HDMI interface. Setting up the MOXI was, overall, a painless experience, if not a little time consuming. At first boot up, the device was contacting the mothership with instructions to find any updates to the MOXI software, which it found, downloaded, and installed. One minor nitpick here is that it did not provide the unit ID that is used to register at the website until after this 30 minute process was over. It would have been nice to be registering while I was waiting for the update.

Next came the M-Card install (multi-streaming cable card, allowing dual feeds for the device), and overall, went off with relative ease, despite a little trepidation on both my part as well as the Comcast@ customer service rep. He was not familiar with the MOXI brand and we both got a little nervous when the MOXI wouldn't recognize the card for a channel scan (but did get the card's ID info) until the customer rep was astute enough to suggest that I remove the card and try it again while the device was powered on.

I have been playing with DVRs since Tivo was first introduced. My experience includes playing with these devices below:

Tivo Series 1
Tivo Series 2
Tivo HD
Panasonic Showstopper
ReplayTV 5000 series

I will not be comparing the MythBuntu or HTPC because they are not out of the box solutions. They require some sourcing of parts and baby sitting.

I purchased a Moxi 3 tuner unit with three Moxi Mates about two months back so I had sometime to play with it. They have since released a new update that now enables live streaming to the Moxi Mates. As of right now, the Moxi setup is perfect for me. The live streaming really completes this HD experience in my whole house.

PRICE: The comparison here is with Tivo and Moxi since ReplayTV and Panasonic are now out of the picture. If you have one room, your cost for a Moxi is $[...] (two tuner model). With Tivo HD, you are paying about $150 more (this price include buying a 500GB drive upgrade). Tivo HD XL is even more. So Moxi clear beats Tivo in cost. If you have three rooms, Moxi is $999 while Tivo will be significantly more since you have to buy 3 full featured Tivos and get lifetime subscription on each.

TUNER: Moxi offers a three tuner unit. Tivo has a max of two tuners. Having an additional tuner makes it easier to record all the shows you want.

QAM TUNER: Moxi allows you to map clear QAM channels to the electronic program guide.

NOTE: This model on Amazon is a TWO TUNER UNIT!!!!!!!!!! Please go directly to Moxi to get the three tuner model.


ADs: Moxi has no ads. Moxi's interface is ad free.

- DLNA support watching my divx movies, hulu, mp3s, jpgs, from my tversity box was super easy. The DLNA menu is much faster than the Xbox360 or Dlink dsm-520.

- Menu is much easier to read than the motorola or tivohd, all three used different methods for moving around. all were just as intuitive.

- 2 hour live buffer is really nice... tivo is 30min...

- compatable with 4TB eSata drive from lacie. Tivo maxes out at 2TB total storage regardles of how it is installed.

- Ticker is kind of like a widget, nice. also there is a webpage display but it is currently really slow... could easily be a bug though. (you can view web pages from the moxi)

- worked right away after upgrading channel lineup. (the tivo required me to manually add the new premium channels)

- Just a response to other reviews as of july 10th when i recieved this box I have had no crashing, and my recorded content is flawless. Also the remote is indeed backlit.

- Tivo has a much better search, smarter more intuitive.
- box to box streaming and box to pc streaming need to be fixed.
- moxi mate needs to be released.
- no discount for second/third box.
- streaming HD from netflix/unbox/blockbuster

All of the cons listed are being addressed by moxi and they expect all of them to be released this year... (with the exception of dlna 2.0 streaming to a pc client.)

I purchased the moxi and tivo HDXL the same day within 4 days I had both units at home waiting for cable cards. Fios tech came out only had one card and installed it in the tivo so I used the tivo for 4 days before another tech could come out and set up the moxi.
