Question about Arris DCT6200 DTV Receiver

1 Answer

No picture, no sound, nothing

Just hooked up my dct6200, called my cable provider to activate it and nothing happened. Receiver just reads "0". Can't get the guide, menu, or switch channels at all.

    I just have a 0 showing on my motorola 6200, they hooked it up but nothing! I can turn the unit on and off , but that's it, it won't do anything. Help! Never been used before either. Do I need a certain cable wire for it, I want it to go through my dvd also .

    Not only do I have nothing showing, it reads no signal. Happening often now and Verizon says it is a problem between vizio and verizon boxes not being compatible. Our other vizio does not have this problem and it was bought at the same time.

My spouse dropped the remote & lost the "connection", I called the cable company who said to set the TV to Video 1 but after that didn't work. After some discussion about what was plugged into the DVR I was told I actually needed Component 1. That worked. Hope that helps.

After power surges have had 20 DCT6200 receivers that do not power up. Have replaced power supplies but only half the receivers work again. The other ones will not power up even after a new PS. Where is...


I think the transformer for the dct6200 is in the cable box... thats why there is no "box" on the power cord...
sadley that means the damage may be in the cable box and much harder to replace than if the transformer had been on the cord.

can you call the cable company and have them replace them?

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

I am installing a comcast DCT6200/2005 CATV CONVERTER. WHAT COMES UP ON MY TV SCREEN IS "THIS CHANNEL SHOULD BE AVAILABLE SHORTLY" WHAT DO I NEED TO DO TO GET THIS TO WORK PROPERLY?


call you cable provider and ensure that the box is correctly identified on your acct. If the serial numbers don't match with the acct then the box won't work

Motorola DCT 6200/1000 seems to only have one audio output?


There are three options:

1) Connect the Tivo using the coax output of the cable box into the cable input of the Tivo

2) Exchange cable boxes with your cable provider for one with composite output jacks. It may require you to use a Motorola box that isn't High def depending on what your provider has. I know Comcast has a Motorola HD tuner that has composite outputs as well as component.

3) Upgrade to a Series 3 Tivo. Those units are designed for High Def. Use HDMI cable hookup.
