It's a cable box with a VCR, just a little easier to use.
Adelphia, Ventura County's major cable television provider, is offering DVR to local customers. The new feature allows subscribers to record shows by the season, pause live shows, and record shows while watching others, all through the digital cable menus.
The company is using Moxi, a digital video recording system through a set-top box. The system can store 60 hours of standard definition television or up to 15 hours of high definition shows.
Customers can request the new box needed for the service as of this week. The equipment can be leased for $7.95 per month, plus $4.95 a month for service.
DVR is available in Agoura, Calabasas, Camarillo, Fillmore, Moorpark, Newbury Park, Oak Park, Ojai, Oxnard, Port Hueneme, Santa Paula, Simi Valley, Thousand Oaks, Ventura and Westlake Village.
