Will a 3.4 IR remote work in place of a 3.1 IR remote

It should work, provided has setup codes for your device. Check whether there is setup codes for the device do you want to programme with it. You can get this information from the code list of the remote control; you have purchased. If there is no code found, you can just search for a code.
  1. Manually turn on the device (TV, VCR, etc.) to be controlled.
  2. Press and hold the SETUP button until the red indicator stays on, then release the SETUP button.
  3. Press and release the desired Mode button (TV, VCR, etc.). The red indicator blinks once, then stays on.
  4. Press the CHANNEL UP button repeatedly (up to 300 times) until the device to be controlled changes channel. The red indicator blinks, then stays lit.
  5. Press and release MUTE to install the code. The indicator light goes off.
Most users will want to store VCR codes under the VCR button, Cable codes under CBL, etc. If you want to store a VCR code under CBL, etc., first follow the procedure for Direct Code Entry and press CBL in step 2 of Direct Code Entry, then enter ANY VCR code in step 3 of Direct Code Entry. Then follow the steps above for Code Search.

No Sound on a Motorola DCP-501

You don't say what else works. Have you tried it with FM to eliminate external source causes? Does your TV get audio passed through to it? That would establish that there is program material to be amplified. Headphones work?

The following is from the User Guide -

Check to make sure that each speaker has been properly connected to the
speaker output jacks on the rear panel of the DCP501.
�� Check that the speakers are working by utilizing the Test Tone function as
described in the “Operation” section.
�� Verify that the DCP501 has not been placed in MUTE mode.
�� Check that the volume control on the DCP501 has been adjusted to an
appropriate listening volume.
�� Verify that the DCP501 is set to the correct source (CATV, VCR, DVD, Tape,
�� If the front panel displays O V E R L O A D , one of two things has happened:
1 If the DCP501 detects the speakers have a short circuit, it shuts down
the amplifiers. Switch the DCP501 off, remove the short circuit, and turn
the DCP501 back on. The DCP501 should now work as normal. If
O V E R L O A D is still displayed, a short circuit condition remains.
2 If the maximum amplifier output power is exceeded, the DCP501 shuts
down the amplifiers. Turn down the volume a little and switch the
DCP501 off and then switch the DCP501 back on and the DCP501
should now work as normal. If O V E R L O A D is still displayed, turn the
volume down some more.

The Speaker Setup menu has a Speaker Reset (to default settings) option.

DVD Player won't work

DVD's: does it display any kind of error? All DVD's?

To your second question.

The manual explains cable and TV hookup for CABLE but there is no mention of off-air TV tuning.

If you don't have the manual go to: and register to get it. It's free.

Motorola DCP-501 and PPV

It takes registration of the unit to receive them and it would be unethical and illegal to post a way to hack them here...

The clear protective film on the DCP501 display must be removed and transferred to the inside back cover of your
DCP501 Home Theater System User Guide. The Unit Address and Serial Number found on the protective film is
required for activation of your DCP501 cable TV receiver by your cable TV service provider.
