I have a motorola digital cable box model #sft2 cable box. Till yeseterday it was working, somehow today morning its unable to acccept any command from RTV. I tried unplugging and resetting the ir blaster and did a hardboot, tried several code sets and none of them worked. I have tried code 276,0476,1476,1106 etc... and the cable box does turn on during ON/OFF test but when tried to change the channels its unable to change channels and whatever I selects on the remote it returns back to the channel on her cable box. I also tried tweaking the delays for code 0476 increasing the intercommand delays and it did not work. Any suggestions....

Code 4476 was recently modified.
Other changed codes that don't sp ecifically list that box are 1106 and 1476. You can try that as well. You can try it even if it doesn't turn your box on or off.

I have a digital cable box which identifies itself as a General Instruments Starfone SFT2 -- I don't know if it's the same as your box. But I also found a sticker which said DCT2244 on it. The code for the DCT2244 seems to work for my box. There are two codes 7400 & 7400A, try those. Good luck, let us know if you find something that works.

If you don't want to know, don't ask. The truth is brutal, prepare for pain.

Thanks Ace987, I was about to take my ReplayTV back to Radio Shack after spending all evening trying to get the IR blaster to stop sending out 3 of each numbers. I foolishly set it to a program and went to walk the dogs after doing the initial setup, only to return to find I'd missed the first part of my show because instead of channel 72, it put it 000 777 222 and got a channell I don't subscribe to. As I stayed up past my bed time, trying every set up, I had come to the conclusion that I would have to take it back and just settle for a VCR.

Then I woke up early, after dreaming about my ReplayTV all night long, with the idea to search the internet and I came upon this post, tried the Customer Service guy's numbers and then tried yours Ace987. I almost cried as my ReplayTV went right to the correct channel each time.

Thank you, thank you so much!
