The $800 Moxi MR-1500T3 DVR
 
Digeo's Moxi HD Digital Video Recorder is a full-featured DVR with an easy-to-use Emmy-award winning user-interface, and no monthly fees...ever.

Key Features:

* CableCARD Support: With a digital cable subscription and a broadband connection, you're ready to enjoy content from your cable company, your PC, and the Internet.
* No Monthly Subscription Fees: Unlike other DVRs, once you've bought a Moxi HD DVR, you're done paying.
* Tons of Space: A 500 GB hard drive provides up to 75 hours of HD and 300 hours of SD Programming.
* 1080p Support: A Moxi HD DVR supports both 1080p 24 & 30 Hz, along with 480i, 480p, 720p, and 1080i.
* No Advertising: Other digital video recorders place ads on everything; the Moxi Menu doesn't.
* Browsing Options: Search for a specific show, browse full screen, take the entire guide forward in time. Moxi's got you covered however you like to browse TV.
* Multimedia Fun: Enjoy your HD photos, MP3 collection, and Internet content right from your TV.
* Award-Winning Interface: The Moxi Menu is the only user interface with both HD graphics and an Emmy Award.

It looks like a TiVo beater or a replacement for the Sony DHG-HDD500 but there is a caveat on the Moxi site (Tech Specs) that says:
The easy-to-use Moxi Menu with no monthly fees* (*Free registration required. Future services and features may be subject to additional fees.)

That worries me, I'm now reluctant to buy one.

This same thread is in AVS Forum verbatim. What gives? Did the forum change its name?

Why is this a problem? Just wondering.

"The problem" is I don't want to pay $800 for a cable box (with express purpose of getting out of a monthly fee) and then have them start billing for features that were free when I bought it.

What exactly are they billing for now?

I think what hhiggins means is the suspicious nature of the Moxi caveat, repeated here:
....with no monthly fees* (*Free registration required. Future services and features may be subject to additional fees.)

Unlike the discontinued Sony DHG-HDD250/500, they're saying that in the future it may cost you for the scheduling service. That statement caused consternation, so I backed away. Who wants a product ($800.00!) that after you purchase it, they decide to charge you for its use?
