Digeo Moxi Mate $399 multiroom DVR streamer

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.
