The Moxi interface

Unlike the grid-style electronic programming guide (EPG) found on most DVRs, Moxi uses a more vertical, split-screen format: channels on the left side, current and upcoming programs on the right. Unlike TiVo Series 3, the interface is in HD, and it takes up the whole wide screen.

Proof that people hate change: Despite the fact that Moxi's default interface won an Emmy, the company added the option to toggle to the more traditional grid guide as well.

Play some tunes

The Moxi doubles as a music streamer. It can access Rhapsody (subscription required), stream music files from a DLNA-compliant server (such as a PC or Mac), and play free streaming Internet audio via the built-in FineTune app.
