This is certainly bad news, but as many others have said, not completely unexpected either.
I think this is another piece of evidence in how hard it is to have a business model for this kind of device that doesn't rely, in part, on reoccurring revenue.
Granted, the whole reason I bought the Moxi system was to get away from the monthly charges. The problem is that it requires the supplier to make all of their money up front and continuosly grab new customers. All of this in a limited market.
I would be willing to pay a reasonable monthly fee for guide data and SW updates for a whole house system (say up to $5/mo). Just not the $10-$15 per unit that seems to be the going rate for other systems.
