    I'd like to be able to download HD video files from my Motorola DCH6416 DVR so that I can back them up on DVD. I'm not concerned with loss of quality that's sure to occur going from HD to DVD. I have Windows Vista Business and when I connect the Motorola DCH6416 via the Firewire port, Vista goes through the process of trying to install the driver, but ultimately fails to find the appropriate driver online or otherwise.

How do i hook-up my vcr to my cable dvr to record saved shows


Hi,
In order to record from VCR to DVR You need to connect "VCR audio/video output RCA jacks " to" DVR 's Audio / Video Input RCA jacks.. ..
use either "RCA analog (red/white+ yellow ) " or "optic " cable.(any standard optical cable )..if exist .optic is the best way to connect it..Remember your VCR 's "OUT" goes into" IN "of DVR ..
pls also remember,wherever you connect your VCR on your DVR ,you should switch the source selector accordingly to correspond to the connection on the back...
Now you can record anything on DVR which played in VCR ..
Hope this helps!..if more help requires pls let me know.
Take care and please

Trouble using Motorola DCH6416 HD DVR with standard def. tv


I fixed the problem! I found a posting on a message board by someone who had the same DVR and a similar problem. This person found a way to access a secret menu in the DVR to override the format which is automatically assigned. I followed the same steps to access the menu on my DVR and then tried changing a few settings until I found the ones that worked--changing the automatic setting from OVERRIDE to STRETCH and changing the output setting from 1080i to 480p. (It's pretty pathetic that no one at Charter could fix this problem!) Here is the link to the posting that I used: http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=1132766

I want to hook up an external hard drive to increase the record time available for my Motorola DCH3416 cable box. I already have drives with eSata, USB, and firwire ports.


From the Motorola FAQs:

How do I transfer my programs from my Motorola DVR to an external device like a computer or hard drive? trnsp.gif Question How do I transfer my programs from my Motorola DVR to an external device like my computer or hard drive?
trnsp.gif Answer No. Currently you can't offload recorded content to any external device from a Motorola DVR, even though the data ports are there, the software doesn't support it yet. When the option becomes available through a software upgrade, it will be downloaded to DVR automatically by service providers/cable companies.

Downloading tv to computer from DVR?


You can do it by having the USB port on your unit activated (I think Dish Network charges a fee for this). Once activated, you can link the two together and save the files to your computer. The problem is that your computer won't be able to read the files. It will act as a storage unit only. If you ever wanted to watch the saved files, you would have to transfer them back to your receiver to watch them.

Need diagram to connect Motorola DVR, Panasonic DMR-E recorder, A/V Receiver, and HDTV


Your not going to be able to connect in series (not sure if thats your goal) since your limited by the type of connections you can use. Your receiver is going to have to be switched depeneding on what source you want to listen too. DVR, DVD, etc. HDMI is going to important for your TV connection. Radio Shack has cheap HDMI cables.
So... connect HDMI from DVR to HDTV this will give you sound and picture to TV. Connect DVR optical or coaxial ( RCA if you dont care about surround) to Receiver to give you DVR sound thru Receiver input.
Connect DVD to receiver via optical/coaxial/rca for DVD sound thru receiver (again RCA is not recommended for surround).
Connect Component video to HDTV(or HDMI if TV has second HDMI input) to give you video from DVD.
Connect Yellow video or S-video from DVR to DVD recorder input to allow recording from DVR. Also connect red/white audio to (same) DVD input.
That should cover it.
