Longtime readers know I am a huge fan of Tivo, and have been since time zero about eight years ago when I bought my first Series/1. (BTW I still have it - suitably enhanced with a larger hard drive and ethernet adapter, and augmented with a webserver so I can program it from anywhere - and it still works great!)
However for the last two years I've had a Moxi as my "primary" DVR driving my plasma HD in my family room. If you click through that link, you'll see when I got it I opined: "I was afraid I would hate the Moxi GUI and pine for my Tivo. Well, I have to say, it doesn't suck. I'm not sure whether I'd say it is as nice as the Tivo - I guess maybe I would not say it is as nice as the Tivo - but it is eminently usable." On further review, actually, it does suck.
For two years I've been putting up with the Moxi GUI, it has been just good enough not to replace it, but bad enough that think about replacing it often. On New Year's day I had an unpleasant experience programming it for that day's football, and resolved to get a Tivo HD. Today I had the same unpleasant experience programming it for today's football. So I re-resolve to get a Tivo HD.
Should be good for a blog post or two - so stay tuned!
