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: connecting HD cable box to DVR too HDTV

When I hooked up my HD cable box using an HDMI cable, I had to go into the cable screen menus and select HDMI output. You may have to do something similar when using an S-video cable. Your DVD recorder doesn't seem to have an HDMI input, so you'll have to use the S-video or (worst case) composite video (red, white, yellow cords). Your cable box may also be scrambling the signal so that you can't record. That may be why you can record by bypassing the cable box.

SOURCE: Normal Picture Mode Not Available With Cox HD-DVR (Motorola DCH3416) and HDMI Cable

With an HDMI cable connected, the cable box determines the picture size. The settings on the cable box must be changed in order for you to get the correct picture size. I have some experience with Motorola cable boxes; usually to access the settings you turn the box OFF and then press the menu or settings button on the box to bring up the display menu. Hope this helps!

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

SOURCE: Having problems with HDMI connection

Connect the HDMI outputs on your various components to the HDMI inputs on your receiver. Connect the HDMI output on the receiver to the input on your TV. HDMI incorporates digital audio, so no need to buy optical audio cables. If your receiver does not have HDMI inputs for all your components, you will need to make a choice. HDMI = Best, component video + optical audio = second best, S-video+ optical audio = third best

The tv can plug in on 220 power voltage


If you have your owners manual check the specs, however most Sony Bravia units have universal power supplies (120V-240V 50/60Hz). If the TV was built for North American use the tuner may not be able to decode the signals in Europe or Asia, they will need to be converted to standard HD signals (1080i, 720p etc.connected with HDMI or Component inputs) to be displayed.

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.
