Hello Guys =)
I live in Mexico and I just bought a Motorola DHC3416 DVR from ebay, my Cable company provides me with an Analog Service (that means no STB just a simple coax cable).
The configuration I want is very simple, just watch TV and record some shows that I like at certain times (no automatic recording or anything of the shows, I know).
However I can't see any channel when I plug the coax cable to the Cable In socket and my TV to the RF Out socket, not even when the DVR is turned off (no RF bypass). And here my problems start.
Seems like there is limited functionality on the DVR, because I could not change the RF bypass on the Menu - Cable Box settings, and when using the Diagnostics Mode of the DVR, I can see that the DVR is hooked to the service as I can see the clock of my provider, but I could not change the features on the Interface section
But the thing is that I believe that the Cable provider of the original owner of the DVR crampled the box. How can I change the configuration manually? Any hints? Did I just waste my money? hope not. This is my first DVR.
Thanks a lot.
