Question about Arris DCT6200 DTV Receiver

Motorola DVR headphone problem.

I recently purchased an Hitachi HDTV, then changed my cable service to include the Motorola (6412, I believe) DVR. I used the TV for a few days - connected directly to cable - while I waited for the DVR to be installed. My headphones worked fine. Once the cable folks installed the DVR my headphones went mute. I hadn't changed the headphone connection. Mediacom says it is not their problem, but it is a very big problem for me. I am nearing 70 and have only about 20% of normal hearing. It is almost impossible for me to understand TV audio without headphones. I would be very grateful for any suggestions regarding connections or settings that will remedy this situation. Thank You, Chris Milton

I want to hook my pc to my motorola 6412 so i can tv as a monitor

in order to do this you will need to have a pci slot available on your motherboard and purchase a video capture card also known as a tv-tuner card, these cost approximately $50 but you could get one cheaper used (which i recommend), you can then configure the device using windows media center. In addition, in order to connect your PC to your television you will need a graphics card that is capable of providing this functionality.

Motorola dvr dct6412 locked channels

Check with your provider to ensure that you are in expanded services, or limited. Because being on limited services the box will lock you out of those channels. If you are in billing for those services and you checked the batteries on your remote and they are good and you get a solid red blink when you change channels not a double blink (indicating that your batteries are dying), Then try power cycling your DVR by, removing the power supply and waiting 3sec then plug it back in. Your box should shut off, turn itself back on, then go into the load screen, then, once the load screen display shows on your tv and on box display, wait for your box to completely load (don't touch nothing until the correct time shows up, meaning that it has completed the load process) Once the process is complete turn box back on and you should have you guide back up and (No Data) on your program schedule(Don't Worry!!) it will populate, with 15-20 mins.

Now try to ch. up and down and see if that fixed the problem. also make sure nothing is blocking the sensor. If all else fails and you changed the battery, called your cable provider and request a box swap, (be sure to watch all your recorded shows because they go bye, bye with the cable guy!)

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.

I cannot get dvd feed to tv when I connect my jvc

I work for a cable company that has this exact cable box. in our system we choose not to actvate this option. cable companys go to motorola and give them the exact features that they want the box to perform. most cable companys won't have that feature added mainly 1 due to cost and 2 if you have that type of box it probably has on demand available, so they want you to rent a movie then to play it on my opinion straight to the tv is better anyway, the less devices you run the video signal through the less problems you will have . all those ports on the back of the box is standard for the 6412, but are not always actvated.

I have a Motorola High Definition Digital Receiver DCT6200 and the red record icon is not visible

The DCT6200 is not a recorder. You need a 6416 or 6412 model for DVR function.

Need diagram to connect Motorola DVR, Panasonic DMR-E recorder, A/V Receiver, and HDTV

Your not going to be able to connect in series (not sure if thats your goal) since your limited by the type of connections you can use. Your receiver is going to have to be switched depeneding on what source you want to listen too. DVR, DVD, etc. HDMI is going to important for your TV connection. Radio Shack has cheap HDMI cables.
So... connect HDMI from DVR to HDTV this will give you sound and picture to TV. Connect DVR optical or coaxial ( RCA if you dont care about surround) to Receiver to give you DVR sound thru Receiver input.
Connect DVD to receiver via optical/coaxial/rca for DVD sound thru receiver (again RCA is not recommended for surround).
Connect Component video to HDTV(or HDMI if TV has second HDMI input) to give you video from DVD.
Connect Yellow video or S-video from DVR to DVD recorder input to allow recording from DVR. Also connect red/white audio to (same) DVD input.
That should cover it.

Motorola 6412

There are no code modules on the box. The box is searching for the appropriate code to download and is not finding anything suitable. Time to call your cable company.
