Question about Arris DCT6200 DTV Receiver

2 Answers

Picture problem I have hooked up this cable box with the DVI out to my Marantz 9600 receiver HDMI input with a DVI to HDMI adaptor. Then there is HDMI from my projector to my receiver. The picture will be fine for about 3 seconds and then start going crazy by flashing and showing a fuzzy screen. When I hook up directly from the cable box to my projector, the picture is fine so I know its not the adaptor. When I power down and then up again, the picture is there again but only for about 3 seconds. Any ideas?

Your problem might be a simple signal issue. Make sure with your cable provider that you have adequate signal coming into the cable box to convert the signal though all those components, especially the DVI-HDMI converter. The DVI SHOULD be configured to run video only. try bypassing the audio signal with an RCA component cable. This should take the audio load off of the DVI port and re-route it through the RCA jacks, thereby supporting a better video signal. If this doesn't work, then it might be an equipment issue. The 6200 was originally designed to run on RCA component cables. Hold out till after July 1st for new CableCARD ready HD devices.

I have the EXACT same problem with my Sony SDM-P234 23" HD/computer monitor. I know it works (and it works great) with my DVico PCI card with my computer. It outputs in 480i, 480 p, 720p and 1080i with clarity on a simple indoor RCA HDTV antenna. I get the same quality (1080i) picture for the same three seconds as does lewy. I can also add that the digital coaxial output delivers 5.1 audio to my amp and it stays on even after the picture cuts out. Please help.....Comcast sendsa 'technician' out to service it and...well....did I say he's a 'technician'? He changed the box twice and says it must be my equipment. I guess its an act of God that it works with anything else.... I mean....its been checked out by a Comcast 'technician' after all.

    ty for the excellent rating! I was trying to ask a similar question and hoped that lewy would let me know if he got a solution and it just wasn't posted here. The only option to add it here is in a solution. Obviously, my post is not a solution. I thought i was adding just a comment to lewy's original problem post, and was surprised that it ended up as a solution. I still can't find where you can edit your posts either. Sorry I misled at least two people (as for the two red rating thingy's) but there must be at least three more of those kind of people to 'finish me off', lol.

Your monitor has Analog RGB, DVI and HDMI inputs. Any other hook ups will require additional cables and/or adaptors. It also has 2 additional audio inputs. I can't answer your question without knowing what kind of outputs you do have on you computer system. Most desktops have DVI out and would probably be your best bet using a DVI to HDMI adaptor with a HDMI cable out to your HDMI in on your monitor.Rgb cable would use svga out on your computer. The best way to get an answer would be to let me know the make and model of your computer system with avaiable outputs, if you know what the outputs are or, repost with additional info included.

You have it hooked up right. I found something on page 26 of your manual. Look at the HDMI setup section. I think that maybe the problem there. It's an audio select option for input 5.
Let me know if it works.

Connection problem with HDMI cables on Denon AVR-589

Hello,
I want to clairify you install, you sat you have I an HDMI cable running from the Time Warner Cable box to the AVR-589, going in to the TV/CBL input. From the Denon AVR-589, I have an HDMI cable running from the output to my Toshiba RV525U television.

Check the connection at the TV, if as you indicated above you have an HDMI cable from the HDMI out from the Denon to an HDMI output on the TV, if this is the case you need to have that HDMI cable plugged into an input on the TV not an output

No picture

The model you mentioned does not have an HDMI input. Are you using a convertor from HDMI to DVI? If so there are several types of DVI cables/ inputs make sure you use the right one.

Hdmi/dvi

Here is the link to the user manual for the TV if you need it; http://www.haier.com/admin/en/product/upload/42EP24S-UM.pdf Check page 7 - The DVI input has next to it an audio input - DVI does not carry audio as HDMI does - you need to plug a seperate mono audio cable from your cable box to the TV at the DVI Audio input (top of page 12). The Audio needs to be in the one next to the DVI socket in order to work at the same time as the picture from the same "source" selection. Check page 18 "CATV Type" and make sure this is set to the correct one for your cable box Check page 21 that all the audio settings are logical and nothing is turned right down or muted. If none of this helps then please post back. What make and model is Your Cable box? Hope this helps :)
