The $70-off didn't save us any money, and they asked if they could do anything else for us. I said, "yeah, got any of those new Moxi's that work with plasma TV's?" They did, and I said I'll be back in a few minutes. Well, a few minutes turned into a few days after Christmas because there were some shows we recorded that we wanted to watch.
I finally got around to getting them replaced today. After getting them setup, configured, etc for our TV's; I am about ready to throw them out the window. These things are f-ing slow. It takes several seconds to respond to the remote. I thought maybe it was still interference from our plasma TV, but the one on our LCD TV does the same thing. It's only been 4-5 hours, so maybe they're doing something in the background. I'm giving it a few days, before we take them back and ask for a pair of Moto 3416's.
Any help would be appreciated.
If you read the thread, you'd no its no secret the Moxi's interface is slower, always have been. Some ppl think these new 3012's are even slower than the 90xx models. Also, scroll back to read about the tissue paper trick -- while I've not tried it, maybe that's the issue.
FWIW, I've had Moxi's of various flavors from Charter for 4 years now, so maybe I'm used to the speed, but its never been "several seconds" of delay. I have a Moto HD box on my secondary tv (non DVR) and I absolutely hate the grid/guide and would live with my Moxi any day over that crap on my main TV / DVR.
Also, I use a Harmony 700 remote with my Moxi and I think its faster than the Moxi remote, which I never use .... in fact I don't know where I even stored it
