No. The Moto cable boxes don't have an ATSC tuner, and they don't support NTSC OTA channels. The only way you can get local channels with it is if they're provided via your cableco. Otherwise you're out of luck.

The OP didn't mention if he wants/needs OTA channels in HD or SD. Does this Moto cable box have inputs (including cable RF) which could be connected to an external tuner or converter?

The Motorola 3416 does not have an analog tuner. It cannot record anything except 64QAM/256QAM digital from cable.
