Simple.TV by Silicondust

Moxi HD DVR
REVIEW

Moxi HD DVR ( three-tuner)

If you can get past the high price of entry, the Moxi HD DVR's bevy of network and Internet-enhanced features--and its capability of recording three programs at once--make it a potentially worthwhile TiVo competitor.

TiVo HD XL

The TiVo HD XL charges a hefty premium for its spacious recording capacity and THX certification, but most users will be content sticking to the all-but-identical standard TiVo HD DVR.

TiVo HD
REVIEW

TiVo HD

While it's not compatible with your cable company's interactive and video-on-demand services, the TiVo HD's excellent onscreen interface and long list of network and Internet features puts it in a class above the generic high-def DVRs offered by most cable providers.

TiVo Series3 ( 32-HD hours)

The Series3 delivers dual-tuner HD recording and some worthwhile networking features to cable customers, but the exorbitant price tag will be too much for all but the most devoted TiVo fans.

REVIEW

TiVo Series2 DVR TCD649180

While its slick interface and cool networking features still distinguish it from rival DVRs, the dual-tuner function of the TiVo Series2 DT is useful only for those with analog cable service.

DirecTV HD DVR
REVIEW

DirecTV HD DVR ( HD TiVo)

If you're a DirecTV viewer who just can't live without the TiVo interface and can settle for its operational caveats, the aging DirecTV HR10-250 HD TiVo is a worthwhile DVR option.
