No right channel audio when using HDMI connection to HDTV

I have no right channel audio when using the HDMI connection from Motorola DCT6200 cable box to my Sony HDTV. Have right channel audio on all other inputs on the Sony, including analog cable connection. How do I tell if the problem is in the Sony HDMI circuits or the Motorola HDMI circuits? (I have no other HDMI source to test with.)

Since it is easier to replace, I would go with the cable box first. Sometimes there are software upgrades for the TV's that fix such issues but, almost all HDMI issues are with the cable box not the tv.

I'm trying to connect my dvd recorder to my Motorola dtc6400 DVR. I can record picture but not sound because there is only one set of RCA audio outputs on the DVR and they go to the HDTV. There is also...

See if your TV has an audio out socket at the back. If so connect this aodio out to the DVR to record the sound . If not buy a pair of ( one for Left channel and the other for Right channel ) one is to two Y connector and plug the jack to the DVR and connect the split ends to the TV and Motorola DVR. That way you will have sound going to TV & DVR

How do setup a VCR/DVD with a Comcast DCT6200 and be able to record and watch different programs?

You can use a splitter. Or you can connect one connection from the Cable box to the TV and another connection from the Cable Box to the Recorder. By doing so, you can watch TV channels while recording a different program on the TV.

Sound drop with Shaw pvr box with hdmi. How do

This is a very common problem with no real solution. If your TV can be programmed to accept separate audio from HDMI video on the same input, you can feed the audio through standard RCA cables. Unfortunately most TV's do not allow this. Alternatively run them into a stereo receiver. Buying high end HDMI cables will not help. Most people I know with this issue have bit the bullet & just used component video instead. The difference in quality is minimal.

Just bought a Sony XBR9 and Comcast gave me a Motorola DCT6200 box which has a DVI output to a HDMI input into the TV. When switching from a HD channel to an analog or digital channel, the picture is...

I am having the exact same issue. It started happening within the first few hours of turning on the XBR9 for the first time. I also have a Motorola box from Comcast. This did not happen with the HD TV that was hooked up previously. Did you return the TV?

After troubleshooting over the weekend, this ended up being the HDMI ports on my Vizio TV. Going to have to take it and get them fixed.

Two tvs off Motorola DCH3416

If you have different input options on your TVs, you could run the second TV with the Y, Pb,Pr component outputs along with the analog audio from the STB. However, remember the STB will only support ONE output video format. So both TV will have to be set to the same video format (720p, 1080i, 480p, etc)

Motorola DCT 6200/1000 seems to only have one audio output?

There are three options:

1) Connect the Tivo using the coax output of the cable box into the cable input of the Tivo

2) Exchange cable boxes with your cable provider for one with composite output jacks. It may require you to use a Motorola box that isn't High def depending on what your provider has. I know Comcast has a Motorola HD tuner that has composite outputs as well as component.

3) Upgrade to a Series 3 Tivo. Those units are designed for High Def. Use HDMI cable hookup.
