According to TWICE, Digeo has signed an agreement with BendBroadband to distribute the Moxi 3012 HD DVR to their digital cable customers in central Oregon. BendBroadband is a small cable MSO serving the Bend, Redmond, Sisters, Black Butte, Tumalo, and Terrebonne areas of Oregon. Digeo claims this is the second order and deployment for the 3012, I’m presuming the first is the previously reported deal with Charter. However, I still have not been able to find any indication that Charter has actually deployed the Moxi 3012 to anyone who isn’t an employee of Charter. It doesn’t seem to be available to consumers yet.
The Moxi 3012 will provide two-way communication with the BendBroadband head-end, however it does not use tru2way but rather the legacy communication channels. A Multi-Stream CableCARD enables dual-tuner support. Deployment is targeted for sometime this quarter (4Q08), we’ll see.
