After its ups and downs, the Moxi DVR hardware is slowly being phased out at retail, maker Arris announced. The hardware cannot be purchased anymore, and program guide data and technical support for the DVRs will go dead at the end of the day on December 31, 2013. Arris will focus on its partnerships with cable providers, such as with Shaw Cable in Canada.
A version of Moxi was last sold in Canada as the Shaw Gateway and Portal, sporting six HD tuners and a 500GB hard drive. It included one Total Home Portal box for viewing in a second room The Gateway included a CableCARD slot, Wi-Fi, and DLNA support, but was relatively pricey at nearly $600. [via ZatzNotFunny]
