Cox cable remote made by motorola - need code

If you guys can help me with this one - you're geniuses! This is a little complex, so stay with me.

I have Cox Cable, and their Motorola DCT 6416 DVR. It comes with a remote control, which is supposed to be 'programmable' - if all you want to do with your TV, for instance, is turn it on or off. So I haven't used it. Instead, I use an oldie-but-goodie that I first got from Cox: an Atlas DVR/PVR 5-Device Remote - and I love it.

The problem started yesterday, when Cox 'updated' it's DCT software. They split the Settings/Menu function into two, using the TWO separate buttons that the Cox remote - but NOT the Atlas remote has. The Atlas has only one dual Settings/Menu button. So now, when I press that button, I can only access some useless menu called interactive - and I can't access the main 'Quick Settings' menu that lets me turn on and off Closed Captioning, for instance. I just don't have the button.

However, I DO have a few 'empty' buttons on the Atlas that I could program to perform that function - but for that, I need the CODE for the "Setting" button on the Cox (made by Motorola) Remote. And of course, Cox Tech Support was reduced to 'Huh? What do you want?' comments when I called them to ask for it.

If there is any way you can get me that code - or get me a number to reach someone at Motorola (who makes the remote for Cox - at least tech support knew that much), I would be forever in your debt.

Thank you,

    Ah, but Atlas supplied me with this learning mode! All I need now is the "Settings" button code from the COX remote to plug into it. The Atlas really is great, but the Cox remote, um, stinks. So if anyone out there can find that discrete code number for the Setting button (remember, the remote says COX but is made by Motorola!) - so I can plug it into my Atlas, I would be very, very grateful.

    Unfortunately - no. I tried that two days ago - about 6 dozen times - but it won't take. "Learning Error." What I need is the CODE for the settings button from the COX/Motorola remote - I can plug that directly into any button on the Atlas remote using a special (and undocumented) 9-9-4 command.

    Does anyone out there have that code?

In reading the manual I did not see that you could program the blank buttons to support a function like that which would be nice. These are for "tune in" However the pdf file:
states that you can program specific/special device functions in learning mode but the manual does not cover this "learning mode" as it is optional on the remote
Here you can find more information on your Remote including the manual and factory tec support

Lisa I hope this was helpful

    if you have the learning remote all you have to do to program the button is enable learning mode point the other remote at it and press the button you want copied to the learning remote.

    page 15

    press setup untill the mode key blinks twice

    ENTER CODE 975

    press mode key you want the button to be used in

    cable tv vcr etc etc

    in your case CABLE

    Then press the key on your

    Remote Control that you want to learn the new code

    place both remotes looking at each other so your remote can see the others beam about 2" apart

    On the original remote, press and hold the key

    to be learned. The Atlas OCAP 5-Device

    Remote Control with Learning’s LED will

    blink rapidly, then turn off. Continue holding

    the key on the original remote until the Atlas

    OCAP 5-Device Remote Control with

    Learning’s LED blinks twice.

    If the LED displays one long blink, a learning

    error has occurred. Try repeating this step

    again until a successful capture occurs. If the

    function is still not captured, press and hold

    to exit programming

Hi, I have a problem finding a code for my motorola DCX3200 with my universal remote control(cox.) All the other televisions in the house worked, but I can't get this one to respond at all. I have an LCD...

Here is the user guide for the Motorola DCX3200 in PDF format just in case you need it.

Now then here are some Codes for your Cox Universal remote. I understand you have tried some already but just in case you missed any.

Samsung 0060, 0030, 0178, 0019, 0056, 0032

Also give this a try.
  1. Turn on the TV, VCR, DVD, or entertainment center that you want the remote control to control.
  2. On the remote control, press the appropriate mode button for the device once.
    Television TV
    Stereo amplifier or receiver AUX
  3. Press and hold the SETUP button until the selected mode button blinks twice, then release the SETUP button.
  4. Using the number keys, enter 9 - 9 - 1.

    Result: The selected mode button blinks twice.
  5. Aim the remote control at the device, and then press the POWER button once.
  6. Press the CH+ (or CH-) button one or more times until the device turns off.


    In search mode, the remote control sends IR codes from its library to the selected device, starting with the most popular code first.
    If, while pressing the CH+ button, you inadvertently pass the code, press the CH- button one or more times until the TV turns on.
  7. Press the SETUP button once to lock in the code.

    Result: The selected mode button blinks twice.
  8. To search for codes for other devices, repeat steps 1 through 7.
Hope this helps, give me thumbs please!

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 ....
