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 ;}~

Hi ccraigo
To answer your question;
Your motorola will connect directly(not through the dvd) to the tv set into one of the input ,(preferably using hdmi or component cables for hd) and the dvd will use a different input,
All you have to do then is switch between which one you want to watch.
Hope this help Cheers
