Comcast 'AnyRoom DVR' deploying MoCA--gave up waiting on

According to Lightreading, North America's largest service provider, Comcast, is deploying massively their "AnyRoom DVR" solution. Mostly this is to be able to keep-up with the Jones (i.e. DirecTV, Verizon, and even AT&T).

Entropic got a big lift as it is their "MoCA chips that power the boxes the MSO's using for the multi-room DVR offering".

HAN Fan thinks that many observers were surprised Comcast did not go with, the United Nations' me-to  standard. Maybe it was the MoCA trash talk that scared Comcast away from Or maybe while Comcast was politely waiting since 2008 for a chip they just gave up waiting in 2010.

  1. I learned that DISH Network's Hopper also runs on MoCA but it has a lot more functions and features than Comcast’s Anyroom DVR. The Hopper gives customers the ability to record six shows at the same time and have full DVR functions in all four rooms. The Hopper has a 2 Terabyte hard drive and holds 250 hours of HD recordings. It comes with a remote locater button that rings an alarm when pushed and comes with three client boxes called Joeys. I learned from a co-worker that went to CES this year that the Hopper has some new interactive TV features like: Pandora radio, Sirius XM, NBC Sports, Dish Tweet, FaceBook app and many more. I'm so ready for the release date so I can get on myself.
