Before connecting
Before installing, the Moxi 3012 installation environment must meet
the following physical requirements:
•
Locate the Moxi 3012 within six feet of a power outlet.
•
Do not use an extension cord, but rather use a power strip with
surge protection.
•
Make sure the infra-red receiver on the Moxi 3012 and the
remote are free from obstructions, such as furniture and doors.

Ventilation requirements
Available ports
To prevent overheating, allow adequate ventilation and airflow
around the Moxi. The Moxi 3012 requires at least a two-inch (5 cm)
clearance on top and all sides with airflow to the rear.

Before connecting the Moxi 3012, consider the equipment to which it
will be connected. Is your TV standard definition (SD) or high definition TV (HDTV)? Is there a receiver? If so, does it accept S/PDIF? Are
you connecting an external storage device? If so, is it eSATA?

The characteristics of the connections offered on the Moxi 3012 are
listed in table 3 (video cables), table 4 on page 54 (audio cables), and
table 5 on page 55 (external hard drives).
See the Regulatory Information and Product Safety Information and
Warnings document for more important safety and regulatory instructions and notices.

Cable type
Description
HDMI
A digital audio and video connection capable of displaying 480i, 480p, 720p, and 1080i video resolution.
The TV must be HDCP-compliant. If your TV has a DVI-D port but no HDMI port, you may use video output from the Moxi 3012 with an HDMI to DVI conversion cable. If an HDMI cable or an HDMI to DVI conversion cable is used along with an intermediate device such as an audio/video receiver, video might not
be passed through the intermediate device to the TV. If this happens, connect the Moxi 3012 directly to
the TV.
When configuring 480i, the output connection is automatically routed to the port into which the TV is
plugged.
You can also have video out from an HDMI cable and an analog port.

Description
Component
A three-wire analog video connection capable of displaying 480i, 480p, 720p, and 1080i video resolutions from the Moxi. Component is the most user-friendly HD and standard video connection for the
Moxi.
S-Video
An analog video connection with better quality than Composite. S-Video is capable of displaying 480i
video from the Moxi.
Composite or
RCA
An analog video connection. Composite supports 480i video output.
IEEE 1394
A high-bandwidth digital connection, sometimes called FireWire®. The Moxi 3012 provides an MPEG 2
audio and video stream for recording or display on a digital device in the same resolution as the broadcast. No user interface graphics appear (like, Moxi Menu, flip bar, and so forth) nor is there menu audio.

S/PDIF
(optical)
A digital audio connection that carries high-quality Dolby Digital audio. No need to use an S/PDIF cable, if
using an HDMI video cable connection (transmits both video and audio).

Connect to the TV and receiver
The Moxi 3012 supports multiple types of audio and video connections. It is recommended that you use the highest-quality connection
supported by both the TV or audio receiver and the Moxi.
Before installing or connecting the Moxi 3012, review all instructions
and the Regulatory Information and Product Safety Information and
Warnings document.

Do not plug the Moxi 3012 into a power source just yet.

1.
Place the Moxi 3012 in a well-ventilated open area near the TV and
audio receiver (if used), and then connect the incoming coaxial cable
to the Moxi.
2.
Install one of the following video connections (refer to the previous
figure):
Get Connected
•
For HD and supported TVs, connect an HDMI cable between the Moxi
3012 and the HDTV (refer to the previous figure on page 56).
If an HDMI cable or an HDMI to DVI conversion cable is used along
with an intermediate device such as an audio/video receiver, video
might not be passed through the intermediate device to the TV. If
this happens, connect the Moxi 3012 directly to the TV.
•
•
•
If an HDMI connection is unavailable, connect component (YPbPr)
cables for HDTV.
For televisions where HDMI or component is not an option connect
an S-Video cable.
When the previous options are unavailable, use a composite video
cable connected to the V port.
For complete list of available connections see, table 3 on
page 53.
3.
Install one of the following audio connections (only if you are not
using HDMI):
•
•
•
For digital audio, connect an S/PDIF cable to the Moxi 3012 and
receiver or TV.
For analog audio to the TV, connect composite stereo cables between
the TV and the L and R ports.
For analog audio with a receiver, connect composite stereo cables
between the receiver and the L and R ports.
For complete list of available connections see, table 4 on
page 54.
Do not connect Moxi 3012 to a switched power source. Doing so
increases the chance that the Moxi 3012 is turned off and is not
able to record programs as scheduled.

Connect archiving components
To add components to the TV connected to the Moxi, such as a DVDrecorder or VCR, refer to the manufacturer’s documentation for each
device.
Copy protected programs cannot be archived to a VCR and
may not work with a DVDr.
When installing any secondary device, such as a VCR, do not insert the
device in the primary signal path between the Moxi 3012 and the TV,
as this may affect the video and audio displayed on the TV. Instead,
use a secondary video input to the TV for the VCR (see the following
figure). If the content is copy protected, the picture may still appear
distorted.
As previously noted, content providers may protect their content with
copy protection technologies that limit or prohibit the copying or
viewing of their content. If the content is protected by digital copy-
57
Get Connected
right protection systems, the picture on the additional component may
appear distorted or not at all.
Moxi DVR
Signal flows from the Moxi
DVR to the TV and also to
the VCR or other secondary
device. Never install the
secondary device in the
primary connection
between the Moxi DVR and
the TV.
Variations in VCR and TV technology present many connection
options. Determine which connection is used between the TV and the
Moxi, and then use an alternate connection to the VCR.
When selecting the connections, consider the video resolution.

•
For HD programming, use a connection that supports 720p
and/or 1080i.
•
For standard definition (480i), use any video connection except
the one used by the TV. See the following table for the resolutions supported by each connection.
Table 6: Video connections and supported resolutions
You can connect a secondary, digital monitor using the IEEE 1394
port, but the monitor will not display the Moxi Menu, any other user
interface graphics, or the playback of recorded TV stored on your Moxi
3012 (see IEEE 1394 Connectors on page 60).

The Moxi 3012 permits personal archiving subject to all applicable
third party limitations. To archive a program, you must play back the
recorded program while recording it to a connected recording device
(such as a VCR). When recording to a VCR from any port, all on-screen
activities are recorded. This includes channel changes, navigation of
the Moxi Menu, system sounds, and playback actions (pause, stop,
rewind, and fast-forward).
