    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.

I need the exact location of the IR sensor on the front panel of a Motorola DCH6416 cable box.

Do this like mine sweeping. Grab the remote and put it right up to the front of the box. Press the channel up or down keys as you move the remote across the front of the box. You'll get to a point where the box responds well. Then as you go past the point the box will stop reacting so well. Home in to the point where the box responds well. That's your point for the blaster.

My dch6416 will only display a zero?

Sounds like the program may be hung up. First try a hard reset which means you need to unplug it from the power strip. Wait 15-20 seconds, then plug it back in and see if that resets the program. If that doesn't help, try the 800 number that you used when you first turned it on out of the box. Lastly call your cable provider.

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:

Download from FiOS DVR (Motorola Box) USB port is disabled by Verizon to preclude lawsuits by content providers and Movie Industry, but the ability is contained in the box.. I want to download and save...

If you have audio/video connections out of the dvr then that will work , otherwise use a hdmi to a/v converter with red white and yellow connection and use a dvd recorder.
