    can you post a pic of the remote? there should be a dvr button somewhere on it that takes you to the dvr playback.

Look for a green button marked LIST almost in the center of the remote. If the List button doesn't work, be sure the remote is in the CBL mode (press the CBL button right under Master Power once)

When you get the list of recorded shows up, use the up and down arrow keys to highlight the show you want, then hit the OK/SELECT button. That should bring up another dialog box, look for Play and press the OK/SELECT button again to start.

Motorola DCT6200 DVR. Can't find the serial number


I don't think the DCT6200 is a DVR (digital video recorder)
***no pause live tv and no record for play back later***
if there is no sticker try getting into the debug menu:
1) turn everything on as if it was working and your watching it
2) turn just the cable box off (not the tv) and begin mashing ok or select (however its labled) over and over
3) use the d-pad to select number 5 (i think) and push ok or select
5) your serial number is just below the middle of the list

you can use your cable remote or the buttons on the box to do these steps. I usually find it easier to use the buttons on the box

good luck

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.

Cannot record and it has wiped off all previous recordings, maybe something I pressed but i cannot find out how to put right.


If you have trouble bringing up the diagnostics it is usually caused by not timing the button presses just right, maybe press ok two or three times as soon as the box goes off.

The recording light being on when the box is off is a setting in the menu called RF Bypass. Press menu button twice to bring up the full screen menu, arrow down to setup press ok, arrow down to cable box setup press ok, arrow down to RF bypass (if it is on, turn it off by pressing the right arrow), then press exit to get out of the menu.

I want to hook up an external hard drive to increase the record time available for my Motorola DCH3416 cable box. I already have drives with eSata, USB, and firwire ports.


From the Motorola FAQs:

How do I transfer my programs from my Motorola DVR to an external device like a computer or hard drive? trnsp.gif Question How do I transfer my programs from my Motorola DVR to an external device like my computer or hard drive?
trnsp.gif Answer No. Currently you can't offload recorded content to any external device from a Motorola DVR, even though the data ports are there, the software doesn't support it yet. When the option becomes available through a software upgrade, it will be downloaded to DVR automatically by service providers/cable companies.

Motorola dct6416 III - recorded programs appear blank


I ended up calling Motorola who suggested I unplug the power cord from the machine for 10-30 minutes. When I powered back up, I had to give the machine time to reboot but after about 10 minutes with power on I was able to access my recorded shows.

Motorola Dual Tuner PVR - DCT 6412-III --- HELP


Hi.
The information provided shows that tuner 2 isn't working at all on at least the selected channel. This could be a problem on just some channels with this tuner or possibly all channels. You can verify this by hitting the "SWAP" button on the remote to switch tuners while viewing a live program on a problem channel. If you choose the same channel for each tuner, I expect you will see program on one and "one moment please" or freezing or pixelation on the other. The confusion about recording comes about because of how the DCT6412 chooses which tuner to use for recording versus viewing. If you activate record on a channel you are watching, it will use that tuner. If you see it, it will record. For future or series recordings though it will automatically choose to use the alternate tuner so that it won't have to change your channel selection. Since there is no input signal detected on the other tuner, it will actually record but there will be nothing to see on play back. What causes this? It is probably that tuner 2 has failed. There is a slim chance that your cable signal coming in is either too strong or too weak but this is unlikely since the DCT6412 splits and then amplifies the cable input signal before distributing essentially equal signals to both tuners (the plug on coax adapter on the back feeds the cable signal to an AGC amplifier within the DCT6412 and then splits and distributes that output to both tuner inputs). You could check the OOB AGC level as described here http://www.cable-help.com/ but I think your problem is more likely that tuner 2 has gone bad. JM Belleville Ontario

Record


While we have the DishTV receiver/DVR, I suspect they are similar in principle.

You can't really do as you describe unless the unit has two individual tuners; some do, some don't. You'd need to check your manual to ldetermine that.

What you can do on all with the DVR function is watch a pre-recorded program since that comes from the hard drive, not the tuner.
This allows you to record one live and watch previously recorded material.

Connecting my Humax Series 2 Tivo to a Motorola HD DCH3416 Cable Box


Yes, the Tivo will just record in standard definition, instead of high def.

You can still hook the two up together, though.

What I would suggest (and have done in the past) is this:
Split the cable coming out of the cable box.
Hook one up to your HD cable box, and the other up to the Tivo.
Hook the output of your HD cable box to one HD input on your TV
Hook the output of your Tivo up to a different (non-HD) input on your TV.

This will allow you to watch HD while recording standard definition, and vise versa.

Running the HD through the Tivo will work, but will limit you to not be able to watch HD through it.
