jdsmoothie...thanks for the reply. Yes, i tried these codes after doing a 'google' search for the Motorola dct6200 model cable box and found these preset codes in the FAQ's section. However, the Marantz AV7701 seems to be looking for cable box codes only in the 4xxx range. When entering the above preset codes in the marantz AV remote control, I get the "NG" response in the display window. I also found it curious that the Motorola brand is not even represented in the list of preset codes located at the end of the manual.
Not all is lost, though. I was able to enter a Marantz preset code into the Cable One remote (Universal Electronics, model Atlas OCAp 5-device (www.urcsupport.com
)) allowing me to at least turn on the AV7701, cable box/TV, and operate the volume and channel select buttons. My goal is still to use only one remote, the Marantz AV7701, to control/operate all of my audio/media equipment.
Lastly, I did call Cable One tech support and they were not able to assist in solving the issue. I did find out the Cable one will be introducing a new "TIVO" type set-top box in the Spring allowing for multiple DVR program recordings and the ability to watch a recorded program on a different connected TV.
