Arris is making its three-tuner Moxi HD DVR available for standalone purchase.

Arris introduced the three-tuner DVR in November. It was originally offered in tandem with a Moxi Mate, a media player that connects to the DVR to provide full DVR functionality with a secondary TV. The price for the combination of a DVR plus one Moxi Mate is $799.

The decision to sell the DVR on a standalone basis essentially drops the initial outlay for the three-tuner DVR from $799 to $599.

The price list for the Moxi DVR, Moxi Mates and bundles of the two is as follows:

  • Three-tuner Moxi HD DVR: $599
  • Three-tuner Moxi HD DVR + 1 Moxi Mate: $799
  • Three-tuner Moxi HD DVR + 2 Moxi Mates: $999
  • Moxi Mate multi-room player: $299
  • Two-tuner Moxi HD DVR: $499

Attributes of the Moxi product line include up to 75 hours of HD recording space, or up to 300 hours at standard-definition, expandable to 6.5 terabytes for up to 1,000 hours of HD recording with an external eSATA drive; access to Internet services such as Rhapsody, Flickr, Netflix, Hulu and YouTube via DLNA server software such as PlayOn (currently provided with purchase of a Moxi HD DVR at no charge) running on their PC; multi-room viewing with the Moxi Mate; and the ability to record three channels simultaneously while watching a fourth recorded program on the three-tuner version of the Moxi HD DVR.
