Section 1: General questions
I’m having trouble programming the Moxi remote to control my TV or audio
device.
If one code doesn’t work, reset the Moxi remote to the factory default by selecting the following
buttons: Moxi, OK, clear, clear, clear, and try another code listed for your manufacturer.
My remote has a slight buzzing sound. How can I fix this?
The remote has the ability to have back-lighting to help you see the controls on the remote. This
might cause a slight buzzing sound. This is normal.
To turn off the back-lighting, do the following:
Press and hold the Moxi and Ok buttons simultaneously, until the LED at the top of the remote
blinks twice. Press the Stop button. The LED at the top of the remote will blink twice to show that
the back-lighting has been turned off.
To turn on the back-lighting, do the following:
Press and hold the Moxi and Ok buttons simultaneously, until the LED at the top of the remote
blinks twice. Press the Rec button. The LED at the top of the remote will blink twice to show that
the back-lighting has been turned back on.
Can I attach an external hard drive to the Moxi Mate to add to the Moxi HD DVR
recorded TV storage space?
You cannot attach an external hard drive to the Moxi Mate. However, you can attach one DVRcertified* eSATA drive at a time for additional recorded TV storage space to Moxi HD DVRs.
Multiple drives can be associated with a Moxi HD DVR, but only one can be used at a time.
When attached to a Moxi HD DVR, the external hard drive will be formatted (deleting existing
data) for use exclusively with the Moxi HD DVR to which it is attached. It is not possible to
retrieve the recorded data or to transfer it if the external hard drive is connected to other
devices. Refer to the Installation section of the User Guide for additional information.
*Currently there is one known non-DVR-certified external hard drive that has been successfully
tested with the Moxi HD DVR. For Moxi customers who want to build that giant TV-show or
movie-collection, the LaCie ―4big Quadra‖ external hard drive is the ultimate companion to the
Moxi HD DVR. The LaCie ―4big Quadra‖ comes in configurations of 4 and 6 Terabytes and can be
used with the Moxi HD DVR, yielding a combined HD DVR powerhouse of 4.5 or 6.5 Terabytes.
That’s up to 1000 hours HD/4000 hours SD of recordings!
Can I use a CableCARD with my Moxi Mate?
No. The Moxi Mate does not have the ability to tune live TV or to use a CableCARD. The Mate can
stream live TV from Moxi HD DVRs on the same Home Network.

Section 5: Problems with Audio/Video during installation
I hear an echo on all channels. What can I do to stop it?
Moxi recommends using the TV's audio output or the Moxi system's audio output, but do not use
both, simultaneously. Digital TVs have a noticeable delay in audio and video processing. If you
use both the TV speaker and the Moxi system outputs together, there is a noticeable echo.
Section 6: Problems with not seeing video
My TV has a black screen that does not go away after 30 seconds. What should I
do?
This situation can occur if you select a video resolution in Settings/TV Setup in the Moxi Menu
that is not supported by your TV. To regain video, do the following:
1. On the front panel, press and hold the Moxi and Up arrow buttons until the LED flashes (about
five seconds).
2. Then press the right or left arrow button until the LED flashes. Continue this until you see
video.
To prevent this in the future, consult your TV manual to determine the resolutions that work with
your set. We recommend that you only select the highest resolution that your TV supports (in
Settings/TV Setup).

When streaming live TV from networked Moxi HD DVRs, on some of my subscribed
channels, I see a black screen with the message that no signal is detected. What
could be the problem?
This message indicates that your cable service provider has implemented a new technology,
Switched Digital Video (SDV), which requires an SDV Tuning Adapter. If the Moxi HD DVR does
not have an SDV Tuning Adapter, obtain one from your cable service provider and connect it to
your Moxi HD DVR after the CableCARD is installed and paired. If an SDV Tuning Adapter is
already installed, verify it is properly connected.
Consult installation instructions provided by your cable service provider. Additional information is
available in the Moxi Switched Digital Video Overview, and Moxi HD DVR FAQs accessed from the
same web page as this Troubleshooting document on moxi.com.
I have a Switched Digital Video Tuning Adapter connected to my Moxi HD DVR.
When I try to stream live TV from SDV channels, I see this message: “We are
experiencing network difficulties. Please try again later.” What does that mean?
This message is provided by your cable service provider through the SDV Tuning Adapter. Your
cable provider’s network is experiencing problems that are affecting your SDV channels. This
message does not mean that your Moxi system is experiencing network problems. Please contact
your cable service provider regarding this message.
Section 7: Problems with poor video
Sometimes when watching streamed programming from a networked Moxi HD
DVR, the video is choppy and an indicator displays. What is the problem?
The available bandwidth on your home network may vary and can cause intermittent playback of
media. If this occurs while you are watching streamed video from Moxi HD DVRs, Moxi performs a
speed test and advises if the current speed will degrade the playback.
If the resulting speed is not sufficient, you can terminate other applications on your home
network, or wait until more bandwidth is available.

Recorded TV folder of one or more other Moxi devices. What could be the problem?
In order for one Moxi device to see Recorded TV content from other Moxi devices on a Home
Network, both devices must be powered on and have an active connection to the Home Network.
On all relevant Moxi devices, go to Diagnostics in Settings to check their Network Status. If the
status shows ―Unavailable‖ or ―No Link‖, refer to Section 4: Problems with Home Networking in
this document for solutions.
If the devices are powered on and have a link to the Home Network, reboot them to ensure their
software is in a valid state.

Playback of shared video between my multi-room Moxi devices is poor. What could
be the problem?
The available bandwidth of the Home Network will affect multi-room performance. There are two
options in the Moxi Menu to check the speed of your Home Network:
Navigate to the top card of any Moxi HD DVR in Media Link. Press the info button on the
remote. Select the check connectivity option from the info paddle and then select next.
The resulting page shows the IP of the device and Bandwidth statistics. It may display
―updating‖ until the speed is determined. Consult the Home Network connection
recommendations in Section 4 of this document to verify your Home Network speed and
configuration meets recommendations for optimum performance.
While watching streamed content, if there is choppy video, an onscreen indictor may
appear advising that the problem can be fixed by increasing the speed of the Home
Network.

Photos
I can’t figure out how to connect my camera to the Moxi Mate to view my personal
photos.
There is no mechanism for connecting a camera or an external storage device directly to the Moxi
Mate to view photos. If you are connected to your home network, photos on your computer can be
viewed from your TV using Media Link. Also, personal photos uploaded to a Flickr account can be
viewed through Moxi. Just link your Flickr account to your Moxi account. Go to Manage Moxi
Features in your account at moxi.com and enter you Flickr account information.
I cannot see my personal photos from Flickr.
Check your home network and your Internet connections. (See Section 4: Problems with Home
Networking.)
Check with Flickr to make sure your membership is still valid. Also make sure that you entered the
correct Flickr account information in your Moxi account when you linked your Flickr account to
Moxi.
I cannot see photos from some Flickr “users” that are linked to my Moxi account.
Verify that you selected the correct Flickr user in your Moxi account. Note that only publiclyshared photos for that user will appear in Photos on the Moxi Menu.
Jukebox
I am not able to access music from Finetune. What could be the problem?
Check your home network and your Internet connections. (See Section 4: Problems with Home
Networking.)
I am not able to access music from Rhapsody®. What could be the problem?
Check your home network and your Internet connections. (See Section4: Problems with Home
Networking.)
Check with Rhapsody® (http://www.rhapsody.com/moxi/go) to make sure your subscription has
not expired.
Why is it taking so long before my Rhapsody song starts playing?
Moxi is retrieving your song from the Rhapsody server. Depending on your home network traffic,
the size of the song and the speed of the Rhapsody server it might take a few seconds before you
can play the song.

I am using Windows Media Player 11. I have files that are not in my shared folder
which Media Link accesses. How do I add files to the shared folder?
To add files for streaming with Moxi Media Link via Windows Media Player 11, please follow the
following steps:
1. Open Windows Media Player 11.
2. From the ―library‖ media click ―add to Library‖
3. To add the path to the folder that contains your music, videos or pictures, select the
―advanced Options‖ menu and click add.
4. Click OK in the confirmation note. Windows Media Player 11 scans your new folder for
new files to stream.
Even if new files are not found to add to your WMP library, Media Link will automatically start
monitoring that folder and displaying new media files in your Media Link menu.
Media Link can detect my computer, but I cannot stream any content. What could
be wrong?
The Windows Vista O/S requires that streaming occurs over a ―private‖ home network. If your
network is setup as Public you can change it to ―private‖ in a few simple steps:
Click Start Network and then click Network and Sharing Center
If your network is Public, click Customize. In the Customize screen, change your network to
Private
When I try to connect to Windows Media Player 11 from the Moxi HD DVR via a
wireless-type Home Network connection, I get a connection failure. What could be
the problem?
Windows Media Player 11 may require approval for the wireless device on your Home Network. At
your PC, follow the Windows procedure to approve the MAC address of the wireless device being
used on the Home Network.
Note: Do not look for the MAC address of the Moxi Mate. Windows will display the MAC address
of the wireless device for approval.
I’m having a problem playing video via the PlayOn streaming server. I can see
video files, but they won’t convert to MPEG2/WMV and play as expected. What
could be the problem?
PlayOn relies on Windows for the necessary Codecs. The open-source codec set called ffdshow
may solve the problem.
Why can’t I play certain movies that are stored on my PC?
If you bought and downloaded movies, due to copy-protection limitations, playback of DRMprotected content directly from either the PDM or USB ports is not supported at this time;
however, you should be able to stream your movie from your PC. If your movie is not copyprotected, make sure it is stored in a supported media format.
Please note that users are not permitted to use the Moxi HD DVR to unlawfully copy, distribute or
display video or audio content.

buttons on their video files. Trick-play buttons may be disabled or may not work properly while
streaming a movie.
MoxiNet
I cannot connect to a web site using MoxiNet. What could be the problem?
Check your home network and your Internet connections. (See Section 4: Problems with Home
Networking.)
If all your connections are good, try a different web site by selecting a different card from the
MoxiNet category. It is not unusual for a web site to be down and come back up at a later time.
Diagnostics
I want to be sure the Moxi Mate is connected to my network and the Moxi Portal.
How can I do that?
Go to Settings/Diagnostics/Network Status, and select the Refresh Connection button. The
device will verify/refresh router IP address, Set-Top Box (STB) IP address, STB MAC address,
network connection and portal connection.
How do I send logs from my device to Customer Support?
If you have been having problems with your device, Customer Support may ask you to select the
Logs to Server button to assist in troubleshooting. Go to Settings, Diagnostics, and select from
the following options, as requested: Customer Info, Network Status, Service Status, and
Hardware Status.
Section 11: Problems with Multi-room
Sometimes the channel I’m watching is changed by another TV on my Home
Network. Can I prevent that?
Viewers in multi-room situations have equal control over the tuners.
Moxi defines two types of viewers watching live TV provided by one Moxi HD DVR: active and
passive. An active viewer is one who takes action to tune a channel to watch on their TV. During
that action, the viewer watching a channel tuned by the same device is called the passive viewer.
Moxi provides a ―courtesy notification‖ to the passive viewer which provides information on what
is taking place IF there is a conflict. The passive viewer cannot stop the action taken by the active
viewer—thus, the active viewer may ―steal‖ a tuner.
