Re: List of CableCARD equipment MPEG-4 support status

said by birdfeedr:

Moxi HD DVR and Moxi Mate, although no longer available, do support MPEG-4, according to tech specs.

This is because the Moxi was released as competition to the Premiere.

I'm confused because this rep says TiVo doesn't use MPEG4. He right?

The rep must be confused. FiOS currently has around a dozen or so MPEG4 channels. The TiVo Premiere(Series 4) has no problem with them.

The rep is referring to the transmission of video between Tivo's, not the ability to receive MPEG4 video.

And if I stream or transfer an MPEG4 recording between TiVos, it will be sending it in MPEG4. The same format it was recorded in.
If it was recorded in MPEG2, it streams/transfers it in MPEG2.

Thanks. Hopefully TiVo will get wind of this and either retrain him or dispatch of him.

It's really not that big a deal. For their purposes, I'd say he was doing a good job. Remember, this presentation wasn't aimed at you or me.

Who was it aimed for. I thought for installers and technicians.

Kinda off topic but does this mean that MPEG4 recordings on DVR will take up less hard drive space?

He was flat out lying about MPEG-2 and MPEG-4, both the results, and the reason for using what they do.

It should since it is lower bitrate.
