DCT 3416 Ethernet Activation

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Today I went to my local Comcast store to get my DVR box swapped out due to a problem with the video ouput. Anyway, one of the store assistents said that it was now possible to copy programs on the DVR to a PC via the ethernet connection. She said it had been activated within the last month.

Anyone know the procedure for getting recordings onto a PC?

She probably meant Firewire. I haven't heard of any plans for Comcast to unlock the Ethernet port.

The Ethernet port on my 3416 is active, but I am having a few problems using it.
I get Ethernet link and I can ping the bogus 169.x.x.x ip address it places on that interface. It can be found by checking d17 (connected home). I also discovered that FTP is an active service.

Does anyone know what this FTP service is used for?
What is the username and password for it?

Has anyone else out there checked their 3416 for Ethernet link?

Is brute force the only way to get the FTP user name and password?

Since the 3416 has a built in cable modem........am I a wasting my time.....even if I had the user name and password would it do me any good? Maybe it would only allow access to the cable modem and not the DVR contents?

Anybody any thoughts please

That's correct, it would not.

The Motorola DVRs provide no mechanism to transfer recordings over ethernet. Logins are for diagnostic information, logs, etc.
