As for other comments, right now, I dunno what to say Penton. Sounds like this product is a hit, though.
How about this - See my last paragraph.
Folks, I finally got a lead tech to come out and set up my cable boxes and splitters with proper signal strength so I could actually enjoy my 006 for an hour or more without cable woes.
As I am an Adelphia subscriber, I wanted two boxes. One is simply the Hi-Def Moto 6200 hooked up via DVI-HDMI cable to watch live TV.
The other box I have is the Adephia DVR or Moxi box to do my Hi-Def recordings.
(hooked up via component as the DVI is not yet activated)
The reason I went this route was because this first generation Moxi does not allow native pass-through of the signal (which the 6200 does allow);therefore, analog and regulare digital channels absolutely suck on ANY tv. I even think that the Hi-Def channels look like they have slightly less PQ with the Moxi compared to the 6200 but, I'm willing to sometimes sacrifice that for the potential to record. Perhaps it has to do with the fact that the Moxi essentially records everything and by doing so the signal goes through some stuff in the Moxi that isn't in the regular 6200 Hi-Def box. I really don't have the moxi to comment further on this..perhaps the Moxi brainiacs can elaborate more.
Anyway, at least for the immediate nocturnal short term, I plan to become a serious couch potatoe (Quayle on the Qualia ?) that is unless Comcast or Time Warner or somebody else buys Adelphia and throws a wrench in my STB set-up. On the other hand, if Charter should buy it, I imagine things would stay status quo as I believe he is also chairman of Digeo (the Moxi unit). Monsieur Rogue, have you heard anything in the wind about Adelphia's futureor at least the L.A. divison ?
