Call your boyfriend over, give him your "kitty" and afterwards, before he falls asleep, have him setup your electronics PROPERLY for you.

My comcast remote was working with my Motorola dct700/us box and now suddenly stopped working

Put in new batteries or check that the battery contact points inside the remote are free of rust or acid build-up from leaking batteries.

Motorola DCT700 won't power up.

its working correct... thats sounds normal

now you just need to wake it up. turn it on using the remote supplied by your cabe operator. if anything it may be your remote that isn't working. does a "cbl" light or anything light up on the remote when you press the cable box power button? if not try to find out how to put it in cable mode and try again.

wish i had more info

good luck

DCT700/US - Unable to turn on with remote. Yellow light flashes on then off to brief red light then nothing. Tried removing cables and plugging in to power outlet only, but same result.

it sounds like the box is working proper... just needs to wake up. the remote may be your problem.

ok, does your remote have lights that flash when you hit buttons?
for example pushing volume lights up tv. if the cable light doesn't flash then it may need reprogrammed. if none of this applies to your remote... sorry

good luck

I just connected my dct700 motorolaa receiver but i cant seem to see the program guide i can change the channel but i cant see the channels that im in??

its "cold", which means its still downloading. give it 1/2 hour at some point the box will reset and you will see a blue bar with 3 yellow dots. when that goes away toyr box will have a guide and channel bars but they will say no data or to be announced or something of the sort. 10 more min and you will be all set.

hope you didnt mess to much up fussing with it

good luck ;}~

Do you have the actual CD-IB100 box from pioneer, or is it just cables and wires?

I have a dct700 which is displaying only a red light next to the messages and no other lights. I have disconnected and reconnected the box several times and have also checked all the cables. I am not...

those are the only 2 lights on a dct700
the red one usually means you have a message under the menu (probably junk mail about upgrading to video, internet and phone)

try to find out if your on the right channel.
-if a cable goes from your box to the tv use the buttons on your tv to get to 3 or 4
-if the red, white and yellow goes to your tv look for a input or source button on your tv and press it repeatedly till you find the correct input

to clear that message after you get a picture go to menu and try to find something about messages.

Remote Codes for Motorola Cable Box DCT700/US

I have run into this problem with my Sharp Aquos as well. This is not necessarily a code problem but an interference problem.

If you take your hand or a thick book and sort of make a hood over the area of the sensor on the cable box and place the remote right up close to the sensor this will help let you know if the remote and the box are working with the code. Also might try turning off the TV or unplug the TV to test and make sure the remote will turn on the box.

Next thing after you determine this is how to block the interference and be able to use your remote. What we did is placed the Wii on top of the box over the area of the sensor and this seems to have done pretty good.

Good Luck ....

Just want to know if i can get hd channels with a regular comcast motorola dct700 box, if so how? Also, what DVD player should I buy with this, as well as type of cables. TV just given to me, no remote,...

No HD channels on a DCT700, you have to have a HD capable box from comcast. Usually $8.95 a month for box rental. Don't know a lot about DVD players. If you get a comcast HD box, and have an HD TV, you should use an HDMI cable for best picture. Second choice is component cables. Those are the red, white and yellow or red, white yellow, blue and green cables.
