SOURCE: I have a DCT 6416

This happens because the receiver is no longer capable of detecting the presence of the channel and this is caused by the failure of the tuner. This is a hardware fault , the entire PVR must be sent to be repaired - the tuner will have to be replaced.
But i must say that this is the eight question related to a failed tuner that i got this evening in less than 2 hours. Has been a big storm or a big power outage) around you lately?

I have a Motorola DCT6416 PVR. Dog layed on remote and de-programmed. I can't find the program code to fix my remote control.


are you sure its not something simple like the remote is in the wrong mode. what lights up on the remote when you push buttons?

what isn't working? the cable box not responding? the tv not responding? nothing?

RCN's motorola code is 002 (actually i think the new remotes may be different), TV code could be anything.

FYI: battery cover on remote sometimes has directions for code search

hope something here helped

Zero audio no matter what I've tried. It worked fine for over a year. Blu has sound, dvd writer also has sound. PVR from Shaw, no sound. DSR530

I would check your cable between the receiver and TV to make sure they are secure at both ends. If this doesn't work, try unplugging the receiver from the electrical outlet for about 10 seconds. I hope this helps.

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.

Motorola DCH3200 cable box: sound and sometimes video cutting out


Sounds like your SNR is getting too high and causing the signal to overload. A few things can cause this a bad splitter that causes the signal to bleed and introduces noise, or a more common issue is having a weak signal coming from the cable provider and once it goes through a splitter it causes the signal to become to weak to be stable.

Since it sounds like your cable has been working up until recently, you may have had a cable or splitter go bad.

Call comcast and have a technician come out and test the line.

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.

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.

I'm getting cable channels but no high def


Your TiVo is only recording basic cable (i.e., channels it can receive without a cable box). You will need a digital cable box from your cable company to record channels above 99. If your TiVo is a Series 2 you will not be able to actually record in HD either. You should be able to record the HD channels from the cable box, but they will not be HD quality. (This is my current setup and while the picture quality is much better than basic cable, it pales compared to bypassing the TiVo and watching HD directly off the cable box to the TV.)

I can't figure out how to bring up and watch a program i previously recorded on my motorola cable box


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.

I need remote control code number for motorola dvr 6416 III


If this is a remote by UEI or Atlas (usually the black remote that the cable company supplys with the box) the code is 1376.

To set the code, you will need to do the following:

Unlock the Cbl button:
Press CBL once. it will blink once.
Press and hold SETUP until CBL blinks twice. Release setup
Press 982
CBL will blink 4 times, indicating it is unlocked

Program the code in:
Press CBL once. it will blink once.
Press and hold SETUP until CBL blinks twice. Release setup
Press 1376
CBL will blink twice if the code is accepted.

Re-lock the CBL button:
Press CBL once. it will blink once.
Press and hold SETUP until CBL blinks twice. Release setup
Press 982
CBL will blink 2 times, indicating it is locked again

If it is not a UEI or Atlas remote, let me know the remote make and model

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.
