REVIEW

Nuvyyo Tablo

Nuyvvo's Tablo is one of the most promising over-the-air TV recording solutions in years, but there are just enough quirks to keep it in early-adopter territory.

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.

DIRECTV Plus HD DVR HR21

The DirecTV HR20 is easy to use and offers plenty of features, but its operational bugs make use more of a headache than with other DVRs.

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.
