Digeo have unveiled the latest piece in their Moxi DVR puzzle, the Moxi Mate, which takes digital content multi-room. Designed to work in tandem with the Moxi HD DVR, the “virtually silent” box shuttles video recorded from the main unit, together with Rhapsody music, Flickr photos and – courtesy of the PlayOn software – Hulu and Netflix content.
You’ll also be able to browse the internet, using Digeo’s MoxiNet app, as well as stream media from any other DLNA-compliant device on the home network. Initially it won’t be possible to remotely program recordings on the main HD DVR, but that will seemingly be added in a future update. However you do get a new grid-layout view for the guide, and compatibility with the switched digital video some cable operators use.
Finally, Digeo have added support for more external storage devices – including LaCie’s range – to augment the main DVR’s 500GB internal drive. The Moxi Mate will retail for $399 (alongside the $799 Moxi HD DVR) but there’ll also be a bundle for $999 while existing HD DVR owners can pick up a Mate for just $199.
