Unlocking MOTOROLA DCT6208/2005

I went to Ebay to buy a MOTOROLA DCT6208/2005 box that matched the rental box I got from Comcast. I was ready to activate the box, had it wired into the system, and got a menu page that said the box was locked and needed a four digit code number to unlock. I called Comcast and requested they give me the code, which they refused. They said since the box was not from them, they could not help me activate it. They said I could either rent a box for $5./mo. each, or buy a TIVO and they would allow that to be acitvated. I don't want a TIVO with their monthly subscriber fee. I just want to recover the lost channels that Comcast is re-locating onto the digital realm that I'm paying for. Does anyone have any suggestions as to how to unlock this box?? Thanks in advance....

I don't think you can use that box with Comcast, even if you were to get that lock pin removed, it still would not work with Comcast. The lock pin is easy to remove if that's a Comcast box, but the reps just hit a button on your account and it clears it. If the box is not able to be added to your account then they won't be able to remove the pin. Why don't you just get the DTA's for your TVs? You get 2 for free and you can get channels 2-99. What channels are you missing?

Comcast not authorized message


Maybe you should be calling Comcast's hotline to activate the box; they can also run remote tests to ensure it is working properly. Who knows, maybe the box is defective.

Comcast is useless. Got a Motorola 6200 from comcast office. Diagram was for 3 hookups. Physical cable they gave me has 5. Colors don't match. What do I hook up to what? How do I activate? Their phone...


if you are using HD. the colors do not really make a difference so to speak. just make sure whatever you hook to the red video goes to red video of tv and same with blue and green. then the same with red and white audio (some cables come with 3 thicker and two thiner to help with which should be audio and video) try 1800comcast

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

Just bought a Sony XBR9 and Comcast gave me a Motorola DCT6200 box which has a DVI output to a HDMI input into the TV. When switching from a HD channel to an analog or digital channel, the picture is...


I am having the exact same issue. It started happening within the first few hours of turning on the XBR9 for the first time. I also have a Motorola box from Comcast. This did not happen with the HD TV that was hooked up previously. Did you return the TV?

Time Warner has to unlock it. It is an addresable box so it has to be registered on their network in order to work.

Motorola Cable Box DCt2244/1661/abcdeg


I called Comcast they said I could buy a box from ebay and it would be no problem. When I got it had no pic or sound, I called and they said if it was unplugged for 2 months or more it wouldn't have proper upgrades and is junk and said not to buy from ebay. Then why did they tell me I could on the first phone call? Thanks Comcast.....
