Motorola HD Dual tuner DVR DCH3416 HDMI connection not working

I have connected my Motorola HD Dual tuner DVR DCH3416 and my Sony Bravia LCD HDTV with an HDMI cable. However, the television reads that the HDMI port is in use, but the external device (my cable box/dvr tuner) will not show up. I get no signal.
I have tried the cable on another device and it is not the cable. I also tried it on a friends television and their Motorola dual tuner...and it worked for them. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

SOURCE: 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

S0900?


Poor signal. Check connections at all Coaxial connectors. Should be tightened. Unplug a/c from rear of DVR for 30 seconds. Allow time for DVR to reboot and update. Try again. If not resolved, call tech support for your cable company. May have to boost your signal.

I received an error 4 code on my comcast supplied motorola dch3416 hd dvr, looking up this error on the web it was suggested that i reset the device, but did not specify how. can you help?


Hi chestmcn. Here's how you reset your device to its defaults:

1. Make sure your receiver is plugged in, that it's connected to your TV, and that your TV is turned on.

2. Turn your receiver OFF, then press MENU on the front panel of the box. You will then see a menu on your TV.

3. Using either the up/down buttons on your remote control or the up/down buttons on the front of your receiver to navigate. Use the right arrow button to view the options for each setting.

4. Arrow down to the setting labeled "Restore All Defaults", then press the right arrow button to select that option.

5. Exit the menu and save your changes by pressing the POWER or MENU button.

For what it's worth, this issue may also be related to Comcast reference code error s0900, which means a disruption in service, usually temporary.

In case you run into more trouble with your receiver, here is a link to the user guide- http://www.motorola.com/staticfiles/Business/Products/TV%20Video%20Distribution/Set-tops/QAM%20Set-tops/All%20Digital%20QAM%20Set-tops/DCH3416/_Documents/Static%20Files/DCH3416_User_Guide_537529-001-c.pdf

I hope this helps. Thanks for using FixYa!

How to set a clock on a hd dual tuner dvbr dch3416


The clock should set automatically, synchronized with your cable provider's time. You can't change it, as far as I know. OR does it display the channel number and you want it to display the time? If so, go to your onscreen menu (home), choose setup, choose cable box setup, front LED display: current channel ----> current time.

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)

HDMI connection not working


I have a DCT6416 which is essentially the same unit but with a bigger hardrive. I just had the same problem and was able to fix it.
First connect your DVR to your TV with the composite RGB cables and disconnect the HDMI. Then power your unit on. Then power it off (using the power on the DVR not a remote) and immediatly press the menu button on the DVR (not the remote). A white screen with black writing will come up. Using the down arrow buttons on your DVR go to the bottom line where it says "reset factory default" Toggle down to that and then use the right arrow key and your settings will be reset. Then exit out of that by powering off. Now remove your composite cables and replace the HDMI. You should be back up and running.

How to connect a motorola DCH3416 to a computer Can I connect an external Hard drive to a DCH3416 USB or SATA port so that programs record to the externl HDD, or how can I tranfer recorded program to the...


Nope...

The eSATA ports are not configured in the device's firmware, and the USB 2.0 ports are useless except for charging your iPod or powering a USB fan. If you could connect an external drive to the unit, it would be partitioned with data encryption that can only be accessed by the particular DVR that formatted the drive. You can however stream local channels to a video capture card via the firewire ports but cable channels and DVR recorded programs would be encrypted. You can thank the MPAA for the grief...

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.

Did any of you actually READ the ORIGINAL question? He wants to know how to show his PC onto his TV, not vice versa.

No right channel audio when using HDMI connection to HDTV


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.
