For some reason, I missed the warning that May 24th would be the last program update.
Was watching recorded program last night and went to check the program guide for a new recording, and saw that my program guide was empty and the channels were displayed in a different way.
First went to Moxi.com to see what was up, then over to here to read the last few pages of posts.
Too bad there wasn't an open API that we could use to load up some of the publicly available programming guides, or whoever is in charge of Moxi would send one last update to enable timed recordings. Oh well, it was great while it lasted.
I got my original Moxi to test SATA support for external drives. Moxi certified my company's (LaCie) external 6TB array. That was a large amount of storage back in 2008. Still have been using that original 2-tuner MOxi, though I've had to replace the internal 1.5TB drive 2 times. A few years ago, I picked up a 3-tuner model, as well as some Moxi Mates. Except for the occasional IP address issue, all had been working great for years.
My first 3rd party DVR was the original 14-hour TiVo that I won in TiVo's jingle contest. Of course, I updated that TiVo to a huge 60GB drive quickly, and it was connected to my DirecTV box. Had Lifetime, too on that DVR.
When DirecTiVos were introduced, switched to several of those in the house until HD took off. Didn't trust the TiVo transition to HD back then, so when HD was solid, and I got FiOS in my neighborhood, switched to the cable-company DVRs (Motorola), and left DirecTV and DirecTiVo.
I was an early adopter of Moxi, and have been there ever since.
A few months ago, I took advantage of that refurb TiVo w/Lifetime deal, and it has been collecting dust, waiting for this moment. Just a few weeks ago, a TiVo friend asked me how my Moxi's were holding out. What a prescient question.
Well. now it's time to dig thru the 2TB HDD collection to see which one will work reliably in the new TiVo.
By the way, both of my Moxi's are full of programming; one is 1.5TB, the other is 2.0TB. I pulled the cable card from one of them, and the recorded programs still play back. Will be using one of the pulled cable cards in the new TiVo.
Thanks to all who've been answering questions over the years. Anyone need another Moxi (yepp, have a 3rd spare) or some Moxi Mates?
Next I upgraded to
