I just got this box replaced a week ago so im pretty sure it is one of the newer models. Any help on getting drivers installed so my box is recognized by my computer???
It is saying Failed when trying to find drivers for these devices...
Motorola DCT-3412 AV\\C Tuner
Motorola DCT-3412 AV\\C PAnel
1) The Firewire output on the STB was designed for AV output to a Firewire Monitor / TV Device. NOT a PC or any other recording device. There is no way for the cable company's to have all of the Drivers installed on the STB to work for all those applications, equipment, or hardware. It only has the basic drivers to display AV.
Not to say it can not be done, you just should not expect it.
2) Here is the thread with info on the XP drivers.http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=403695
it might be updated for vista, so check there.
