A friend of mine has tasked me with finding her a DVR. Right now she's got TWC and one of their DVRs but HATES the interface. (she's a User Experience Designer by trade so she's picky)

What other options are out there besides Tivo? Oh - and I'm not sure if it matters but her phone is through Vonage.

The key is it's gotta be user friendly. She's smart enough to use whatever interface she wants, but she's just fed up with the discombobulated interface. It's also got to handle HD. It's not in a HT, just a basic TV/receiver 3 channel setup.

Ummm.......not really. Check out www.moxi.com. Then there is a Thread regarding the Moxi in the HDTV Recorders forum of this site. Quite a few recent posts since Moxi (part of Digeo) was recently acquired in a "fire sale" by Arris.

Here is a link to a post that compares OTA DVRs. It has a lot of information about TiVo DVRs.
