This thread is for discussion relating to Charter HD cable reception in the St.Louis metropolitan area.
There are currently three HD receivers provided by Charter for this market: the Moxi
, the Motorola 6200,
and most recently, the Motorola 3416
. The Moxi and 3416 are DVRs, the 6200 is not.
The 6200 has a working firewire port and a working DVI port.
Some Moxis have firewire ports and some do not. Of the ones that do, they are reported to be active.
The Moxi's DVI port is reported to be active.
The firewire and HDMI ports on the 3416 are active.
