Angry Friend !!
You can buy a JTAG to USB cable and that can erase and reprogram the firmware. Check auction sites for that cable and software to use it.

OH, BTW.... The DAC-6000 is something you cannot buy retail or over the Internet. It's special equipment and software developed by Motorola to control the DCT line of converters and costs several million dollars just to set one up, not to mention the huge fees involved to be suthorized and legally allowed to own one.

Pay Per View events, or IPPV events are stored inside the unit on NVRAM (Non-Volitile RAM) until the DAC-6000 (Digital Access Controller) calls up or "polls" your unit for IPPV events.
THE BAD NEWS:
They cannot be removed by "resetting" the unit. Some claim unplugging the unit for several hours or days.... other claim that you can unplug the unit, hold down the power and select buttons at the same time, and plug the unit back in (while holding these buttons) and watch the LED screen flash 8888 several times and then let go of the power and select buttons. All this does is erase the firmware, NOT the IPPV or polling information.
Only the DAC-6000 can remove the events from your unit. Those events are stored in the unit forever until it's correctly polled by the DAC.
THE REALLY BAD NEWS:
Once those events are collected you will be billed for everything you watched.
The "0" you are seeing on the LED screen indicates it has lost it's firmware and is basically a "brick" until it has been properly re-authorized with the firmware and cleared any polling events.
