So, when the service stoppage notice was posted (and I had finally gotten my Moxi to work well enough with TW Austin and SDV that I was going to ditch the TW box and buy a second mate to replace it), I was as disappointed to say the least. This reminded me of the ReplayTV community and the replacement for the guide service there (Wirns?), so I sniffed the Moxi's network connection to the mothership. So far, I'm not that hopeful that we would be able to replace the guide service - the epg guide data is sent to the Moxi encrypted and signed/hashed. On the plus side, none of the conversations themselves are encrypted - it all appears to be DNS, NTP or port 8080 http traffic. Most of the http traffic requires authorization from the Moxi servers, but it doesn't look like the Moxi proper requires the authorization (as I assume if the server just returned the data on the first try instead of telling it to try again with authorization, the Moxi would be happy with it). It looks like the Moxi checks for mail, branding information, station logos and the epg data. At least that was all that I found in my logs for overnight while idle.
