Question about Motorola Televison & Video
I have a Motorola HD Dual Tuner DVR DCH3416 with Mediacom Cable. It has worked fine up until recently. Whenever I turn on my tv, my receiever shows that HDMI 1 (my dvr box) is connected but when I switch to it, I get a no signal. Also the DVR box flashes constantly between 480i and 1080i resolution.
Save hours of searching online or wasting money on unnecessary repairs by talking to a 6YA Expert who can help you resolve this issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.

Try unplugging the unit for at least one minute and then plug it back in . The unit should reset itself . I will take 20-30 minutes for the guide to repopulate.

With the RGB you have to run seperate audio ,I think you have ran the seperate cables for the sound but they are in the wrong place.try changing the RW from the DVR to the TV and you should get sound from them.The unfortunate truth about the HDMI is that the HDMI format has a problem effectivly communicating between components.I am a Directv certified High Definition technition and %50 of the TV's that I connect the HDMI to will not receive the signal.One trick that I have found that works is to make sure you have a picture on the RGB then connect the HDMI.Once you have these connected ,turn your TV off and unplug the power cord from the DVR for 30 sec then plug the DVR in and wait 5 minutes for it to power up then turn your TV on and switch to your HDMI input.This method sometimes works to "Jumpstart" the HDMI input on the TV .There is no guarantee that this will work but is sounds like for now this is your only option,GOOD LUCK.

First let me say that you have stated your problem very well. I completely understand the issue you are having.
I have been repairing a/v systems since they started selling them.
By your description of your problem, it is obvious that you have isolated the problem to the Yamaha.
Despite what Yamaha tech support say's, it is their problem.
I have been dealing with tech support for a lot of different manufacters for many, many years. I repair under warranty over 20 different brands, but not Yamaha. I have repaired plenty of Yamaha receivers but none with this particular problem.
It is not uncommon to find tech support people who don't know as much as they should about their own product.
Since I don't have the instruction manual or a service manual forthis model I can only be of minimal help.
What you can do, if you have your instruction manual, check it over closely for this subject on how to change the settings for the HDMI. If you can not find this particular issue, it is possible that the Yamaha doesn't support 1080i. I would be surprised if it did not, but stranger things have happened.
Another thing you can do if you can still not find an answer to this problem is to take it in to an authorized Yamaha service center.
If you have recently purchased this Yamaha, it will be under warranty. They get at least 1 year. Tell them the problem you are having and if they do not know how to solve it right there on the spot, or give you an answer that satisfies you, leave it with them
to have it fixed. If they are an authorized service center they will have to fix it or get it replaced for you if it is under warranty. It may need a firmware upgrade to the digital board. If that is the problem, then they can do it for you.
Let me know if you need any more help.
Sorry I wasn't more help, but an authorized service center may be your best bet.
