Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

The TV model is Sanyo DP32648. DVR Cable Box - Motorola DCT6412 III I have a DVR cable box connected via an HDMI cable to the TV's HDMI 1 slot. I have had the TV for around a year now and haven't had any issues until a week ago. I started noticing that after coming back to HDMI after switching to the DVD player or Playstation 3 for a length of time that the HDMI 1 would show "No Signal" on the screen. I tried different things each time this happened: checking the cable going into the DVR box and into the TV, turning the DVR and TV off, changing channels in various combinations. The video and sound would return, though I was never able to tell what I did that worked - I figured it was something with the HDMI cable. Yesterday, however, I came home from work and the HDMI 1 was showing No Signal as soon as I turned the TV on. Nothing I have done will bring the picture and sound back. I have tried switching the cable to HDMI 2, I have tried using a different cable in both HDMI 1 and 2 and all I get is a No Signal screen. As far as I can tell everything else on the TV is working fine: my Video inputs are behaving normally, so I can see the DVD player and Playstation 3 with no errors. I can switch to channel 03 on the TV and I can see my cable channels from that, so the Cable box is producing a signal. The issue is solely between the HDMI ports from the DVR to the TV. Is it possible for just the HDMI slots on the TV to have gone bad somehow or maybe the slot on the DVR has some sort of problem that degraded over the past year? What can I do?

If you have the DVR connected to the TV with the Coaxial and the HDMI that is probably causing the problem I work for a Cable company and have dealt with this problem on numerous occasions. Try just disconnecting the Coaxial cable from the cable box that should fix this issue.

LED TV takes 7-13 mins to display a picture when hooked up to cable DVR box, when hooked up w/ out DVR Does Not do that???


I would suggest you verify your cabling. Are you using HDMI cables? Connect a HDMI cable from the TV HDMI 1 to the Cable DVR Box, In the TV setup ,select HDMI 1 as source. If your Cable box does not have HDMI contact the provider for a updated box. With out the Make, Model of Box, Cable? Sat? Make, Model of TV. I don't know the connections?

DCT6412 III DVR Box has inputs but how do I switch to them?


Who is your cable provider? Several providers indicate that the inputs (USB, ethernet and composite video in) are not currently enabled on all DCT6412 set-top boxes.

I wish that I had better news for you.

When I connect my Sony Google TV to my SANYO TV through a HDMI cable, it does not work. Please any suggestions? SONY TV model = Sony RMVZ320 Remote Control SANYO model = SANYO MODEL DP50747 ed it int


First of all, be sure that your SANYO TV is on the correct input for the HDMI port you're using. If that checks out, you might check to see that another device (e.g. blu-ray player, laptop, cable receiver, etc...) works with the SANYO TV using that same HDMI cable and port. If it does work, perhaps your Google TV box is set for a higher resolution than your SANYO TV supports.

When connecting motorola dct6412 to samsung tv, blu-ray player & avr via HDMI (DVI), do you run the HDMI from dvd & cable box to the avr, then seperate HDMI to the tv?


If you have more than one HDMI port on your TV,
run one HDMI cable from the DCT6412 to the TV,
and one HDMI cable from the BluRay unit to the TV.
Then, use the "source" (or "input") control on the TV's remote-control to select either 'HDMI1' or 'HDMI2'.

I cannot get dvd feed to tv when I connect my jvc


I work for a cable company that has this exact cable box. in our system we choose not to actvate this option. cable companys go to motorola and give them the exact features that they want the box to perform. most cable companys won't have that feature added mainly 1 due to cost and 2 if you have that type of box it probably has on demand available, so they want you to rent a movie then to play it on dvd.in my opinion straight to the tv is better anyway, the less devices you run the video signal through the less problems you will have . all those ports on the back of the box is standard for the 6412, but are not always actvated.

HDMI connection not working


I have a DCT6416 which is essentially the same unit but with a bigger hardrive. I just had the same problem and was able to fix it.
First connect your DVR to your TV with the composite RGB cables and disconnect the HDMI. Then power your unit on. Then power it off (using the power on the DVR not a remote) and immediatly press the menu button on the DVR (not the remote). A white screen with black writing will come up. Using the down arrow buttons on your DVR go to the bottom line where it says "reset factory default" Toggle down to that and then use the right arrow key and your settings will be reset. Then exit out of that by powering off. Now remove your composite cables and replace the HDMI. You should be back up and running.

Connecting HD cable box to DVR too HDTV


When I hooked up my HD cable box using an HDMI cable, I had to go into the cable screen menus and select HDMI output. You may have to do something similar when using an S-video cable. Your DVD recorder doesn't seem to have an HDMI input, so you'll have to use the S-video or (worst case) composite video (red, white, yellow cords). Your cable box may also be scrambling the signal so that you can't record. That may be why you can record by bypassing the cable box.
