    Arris outs a 3-tuner Moxi HD DVR, drops prices across the board

    The former Digeo has managed to stay busy despite going through an acquisition by Arris. The company just went live with a slew of updates that show the company is serious about the DVR game. First and foremost is a new HD DVR model. This boy is almost exactly like the current Moxi HD DVR except it comes equipped with three tuners that will allow you to record three separate stations at one time… Read More

  • Hands-on the Moxi HD DVR summer update: So close, but yet so far

    Hands-on the Moxi HD DVR summer update: So close, but yet so far

    Digeo just pushed the summer Moxi HD DVR update and I had to check it out. I had a few issues with the DVR after the last release that was supposed to be resolved. One, I hate the vertical channel guide bar thing and the summer update added a traditional grid guide. Two, the GUI was supposed to be faster now and require less button presses. Three, the player was finally suppose to be able to… Read More

  • Digeo updates the Moxi HD DVR and releases the Moxi Mate

    Digeo updates the Moxi HD DVR and releases the Moxi Mate

    Digeo is committed to the the Moxi HD DVR and has rolled out some updates. So far I like what I see as the updates addresses many of issues I had with the DVR. First and foremost, the DVR now has an optional grid guide, which is a great alternative to the the vertical bar layout that was previously the only option. Thank goodness, I say. But this summer update isn’t just all about software… Read More

  • On the future of the Moxi HD DVR – with a poll

    On the future of the Moxi HD DVR – with a poll

    I had a long talk with Digeo’s CEO, Greg Gudorf, about the future of the Moxi HD DVR. It became clear to me right away that we saw the DVR differently. He, and presumably his company, views the Moxi HD DVR as an organic device which will grow and improve overtime. I however see it as a device that was brought to market before it was complete and feel early users are really beta testers that… Read More

  • Digeo to offer payments plans on Moxi HD DVR

    Digeo to offer payments plans on Moxi HD DVR

    Despite some initial issues with the Moxi HD DVR, I'm starting to dig the $799 DVR. Digeo has plans to soften the overall cost though with a monthly payment plan. The overall $799 price hasn't changed though, but maybe this payment approach will help move some more of the units. The $799 price is still a touch high, even though there are not any monthly fees like TiVo. It's something to do with… Read More

  • Moxi HD DVR gets some tasty upgrades

    Moxi HD DVR gets some tasty upgrades

    Digeo's Moxi HD DVR, you know it as the other DVR that's sort-of like TiVo, is getting a big software update that brings the sexy DVR up to speed with TiVo. Actually, these updates on paper make the Moxi box seem ahead of TiVo. Moxi's calling card previously was a killer GUI and that hasn't changed. Content on demand is being addressed this time around with PlayOn and DLNA support. Read More

  • The 500GB Moxi HD DVR is finally available

    Digeo finally has made their next-gen HD DVR somewhat available. Amazon has a soft launch of the $799 box and as much as I dig the Moxi’s UI, I hope it has the right stuff to justify spending $200 more than a 1TB TiVo HD XL. True, you don’t have the monthly¬†subscription¬†with the Moxi box, but it’s half the storage for HD Desperate Housewives recordings. Eventually TiVo will get… Read More
