Motorola 6412 iii firmware updating
If the box is ever returned and it's found to be modified, then the user would probably have to pay full price for it.
It is discussed at the AVSforum: Motorola DVR hard drive upgrade This was just perfected a few days ago. I can buy a Motorola DCH3416 for $145 and swap out the 160 GB HDD for a terabyte.They feature DVI (video only) as their main video output.This left users needing to use RCA cables for audio or to hook the unit up to an AV receiver.The DCX700 is a smaller version of the DCX3200, mainly used by smaller cable providers.We do not know the exact differences, but the DCX3200 is by far the more widely deployed unit.The DCT2500 (all models) & DCH100 also support digital audio for 5.1 surround sound when connected to an AV receiver.
If you are just planning on using the standard RCA (red, white & yellow) cables you're unlikely to notice any differences in audio / picture quality.
The biggest differences are size and lack of HDMI output.
The DCH 3200 / 6200 are mostly the same as the above, except they have HDMI output. Pace RNG110 / DC550 (we believe these are essentially the same model) are basically the equivalent of the Motorola DCX700, except somewhat inferior.
While no longer made, it is still an excellent PVR. As of July 21st, 2014 Cogeco has made changes to their internal procedure and therefore will no longer be adding equipment that does not exist in their inventory.
Later models in the DCX series are smaller, but do not feature much in the way of noticeable improvements for the average consumer.
To change this, I need to change the firmware of my DVR box but I don't know how? Are you allowed to modify the Comcast equipment/firmware or do you own them boxes?
