QIP6200/QIP64xx User Guide
DIGITAL VIDEO RECORDER (DVR) – QIP64XX MODELS ONLY
The QIP64xx is equipped with an internal hard drive for digital video
recording of both standard definition TV (SDTV) and high-definition TV
(HDTV) programs. Storage time depends on the video format of the
received program.
What is DVR?
DVR, which stands for digital video recorder, records and plays digital
video using hard-disk drive technology. Unlike an analog cassette tape,
the QIP64xx's hard drive allows recording and playback to occur
simultaneously.
A DVR offers the ability to control your viewing experience by pausing
(time shifting) live TV and providing trick playback modes (pause, fast
forward, slow forward, fast rewind, slow rewind). You may experience a
slight delay between time-shifted and live TV.
With the QIP64xx, you can:
Record Programming
Record many hours of TV program content. The total hours of recorded
content varies, depending on the storage capacity of your QIP64xx and
the type of content (standard definition or HD) being recorded.
Maintain a Personal Program Library
Maintain a personal library of recorded programming, accessed by using
the electronic program guide (EPG)
Control Live TV
Pause, rewind, and fast-forward to the present time
Simultaneously Watch Two Programs
Watch two programs and easily switch between them using the SWAP
key on your remote control (dependent upon program guide support and
remote control)
Simultaneous Watch and Record
Record up to two programs in the background while viewing live or
previously recorded content at the same time
9
Simultaneously Record Two Shows
Record two programs from two different channels at the same time
Simultaneously Record Shows and Watch a Recorded Program
Watch a program recorded on your QIP64xx while recording up to two
other programs at the same time. You can also easily switch between
viewing the pre-recorded program and either of the programs that you
are recording.
Refer to your service provider’s instructions for the menu-driven
recording and viewing options available on your set-top.

QIP6200/QIP64xx User Guide
OPTIMIZING YOUR SET-TOP FOR HIGH-DEFINITION TV
The QIP6xxx enables you to view HD programming. HDTV provides up
to twice the resolution and up to six times the sharpness of standard
definition TV.
The Motorola QIP6xxx delivers high-quality video for HDTVs using the
YPbPr (component), HDMI, and IEEE 1394 connectors. This section
describes how to use the on-screen display to set your QIP6xxx to
automatically optimize both standard and HD video based on your HDTV
and personal preferences.
If you use the IEEE 1394 connector, no adjustments to your settings are
required.
If you have a TV with a DVI connector, you will need an HDMI adapter
cable. HDMI adapter cables can be purchased at your local electronics
retail store.
Before adjusting the settings, be sure that the TV is on and is properly
connected to the appropriate video output on the set-top (see the
diagram in “Connecting Your Set-Top to an HDTV – Video Only”).
To configure your HD settings for TV type, video output, and closed
captioning:
1
Be sure the set-top is plugged into a power outlet and is turned off.
2
Press the MENU key on the front panel. If your TV is on, the
on-screen display menu appears, listing the settings you can
configure.

Important Safety Considerations
Follow these important safety guidelines when positioning and
connecting the set-top:
•
Position the set-top with at least two inches of space above and on
all sides.
•
Do not block the slots and openings on the set-top.
•
Do not place anything on top of the set-top.
•
Do not position the set-top in an enclosed space that would restrict
airflow around the unit.
•
Do not position the set-top near any external heat source that could
raise the temperature around the unit. Do not place the set-top on
top of another heat-producing electronic device.
•
Allow for adequate ventilation around the set-top to maintain
normal operating temperature. Do not place the set-top in a sealed
enclosure without providing for adequate airflow.
•
Do not plug the AC power cord into a switched power outlet.
19
Video Connection Options
The QIP6xxx offers six different video connection options. Component
video, HDMI, and IEEE 1394 allow you to view both HD and standard TV
programming. Composite video, S-video, and RF coaxial connections
allow you to view standard definition TV programming; HDTV
programming can also be viewed, but it will be converted to standard
format.
To determine whether your TV features component video, DVI/HDMI,
IEEE 1394, S-Video, or composite video, check the manual supplied with
your TV.
Use these guidelines to determine the best video connection for your
home entertainment system, and then refer to the table that follows for
specific procedures that apply to specific setups.
Note: HD video can only be viewed with DVI / HDMI, IEEE 1394, or
component video connections.
•
Component video (YPbPr) – HDTV and SDTV
The YPbPr connectors on your set-top provide HD component
video. Component is the most widely supported HD video
connection.
•
HDMI or IEEE 1394 – Digital HDTV and SDTV
HDMI and IEEE 1394 are digital video interfaces that offer higher
quality HD video than component video.
If your TV has a DVI or HDMI input, connect to the HDMI connector
on the set-top instead of the IEEE 1394 connector. TVs with DVI
ports need an HDMI adapter cable, which can be purchased at
most electronic stores. See “Connecting HDTV – Video Only” for
more information.
•
S-Video – SDTV
If component video connections are not available on your TV, use
the S-VIDEO connection.
•
Video (also referred to as composite video) – SDTV
If S-Video is not available, use the composite video (VIDEO)
connection.
20
QIP6200/QIP64xx User Guide
•
RF Output – SDTV
If your TV has an RF input only, connect it to the RF output on the
set-top. The TV must be tuned to channel 3 or 4.
The IEEE 1394 is a video and audio connection, so no audio
connections are required if you are using the IEEE 1394
connection and you plan to use your TV’s speakers as the primary
audio source.

Connecting HDTV – Video Only
If you have a TV with a DVI connector, you will need an HDMI adapter
cable or an HDMI adapter. If your TV has a DVI port, you can plug a DVI
cable directly from the TV to the HDMI adapter on the set-top. Or, you
can use an HDMI adapter cable to connect the units port-to-port. (HDMI
adapters and HDMI adapter cables can be purchased at your local
electronics retail store.)
Determine which of the following connections best suits your home
entertainment equipment configuration and then follow those steps:
Component Video (YPbPr)
1
Connect an RF coaxial cable to the service provider’s wall outlet
and to the RF IN connector on the set-top.
2

connectors on the HDTV and set-top.
The component video outputs (YPbPr) transmit only video. If you use
component video, refer to “Connecting Your Set-Top to an HDTV –
Audio Only” to connect the audio. To connect your home sound system
for audio, see “Connecting Your Set-Top to an A/V Receiver –Audio
Only.”
IEEE 1394
If your HDTV has an IEEE 1394 connector, you can use the IEEE 1394
for both your video and audio connection:
•
Connect an IEEE 1394 cable to the IEEE 1394 connector on your
HDTV and the set-top.
On-screen graphics are not displayed when you use the IEEE 1394
connection on the set-top.
25
DVI or HDMI
If your TV has a DVI or HDMI input, use the set-top’s HDMI connection for
your video using the appropriate interface cable or adapter.
Remember, if your TV has a DVI input, you will need to connect audio as
well. Refer to “Connecting Your Set-Top to an HDTV – Audio Only” after
you complete the appropriate step below.
If your TV has an HDMI input, the video and audio connections are made
with a single cable between the TV and the set-top.
•
Connect an HDMI cable to the HDMI connector on the set-top and to
the HDMI connector on your TV (no separate audio connections
are required since the HDMI interface supplies both audio and
video); or
•
Connect one end of an HDMI adaptor cable* to the HDMI connector
on the set-top and the other end of the adaptor cable to the DVIHDTV connector on your TV; or
•
Connect a DVI cable to the DVI-HDTV connector on your TV and to
the HDMI adapter* that you attached to the HDMI connector on the
set-top.

QIP6200/QIP64xx User Guide
Problem
Possible Solution
There are no
graphics, closed
captions, or
program guides
appearing on the
TV screen
The set-top cannot generate graphics on all video
outputs at all times. If the set-top is set to 1080i, 720p, or
480p output format, graphics are only available on the
HD video outputs (HDMI and component video). If the
set-top is set to 480i, graphics are available on all video
outputs.
If the set-top is connected to a standard definition TV,
verify that the set-top is configured to use the 480i output
mode.
Verify that closed captions on the set-top have been
enabled in the User Settings menu.
If you are using an IEEE 1394 connection, on-screen
graphics – including closed captions and program guides
– will not be displayed.
There are black
bars to the right
and left of the
picture
Wide screen TVs display 4:3 programs in this format
unless set to Stretch. Turn on the 4:3 OVERRIDE feature
on the User Settings menu. This enables most wide
screen TVs to stretch the video to fill the screen (see
your TV manual for information about stretching 4:3
video).
If the set-top is connected to a wide screen TV, verify
that the TV TYPE is set to 16:9 in the User Settings
menu.
Many HD programs are broadcast in pillar-box format
with black bars to the left and right of the picture. These
programs are broadcast in 16:9 HD formats even though
the video is not 16:9.
41
Problem
Possible Solution
There are black
bars above and
below the picture
All 4:3 HDTVs display HD programs in letterbox format
(black bars above and below the picture) because of the
shape of the display screen.
Turn on the 4:3 OVERRIDE feature in the User Settings
menu. This enables most standard screen TVs to display
a full screen picture when the set-top is tuned to a 4:3
program.
Set the TV TYPE to 4:3 Pan-Scan. This enables the settop to remove the black bars above and below the
picture when possible.
Some SD programs are broadcast in the letterbox format
with black bars above and below the picture. Some wide
screen TVs offer a zoom feature that may be able to
remove the black bars (see your TV manual for
information about zooming 4:3 video).
There are black
bars on all four
sides of the picture
This may occur on a 4:3 TV if the 4:3 OVERRIDE setting
is OFF. To set 4:3 SD programming to fill the screen,
depending on the capabilities of the TV, set
4:3 OVERRIDE to 480i or 480p.
This may occur on a 16:9 TV if the active video for an SD
broadcast is in letterbox format. To confirm, wait for a
commercial or look for a graphic, such as a network logo.
If the commercial fills the screen from top to bottom, or
the graphic appears below the active video, the program
is being letterboxed by the broadcaster. You can
minimize this by activating the zoom feature on the TV.
A broadcaster may include black bars on either side of a
wide screen broadcast. This is called a “hybrid” aspect
ratio and results in a black border surrounding the video
on a 4:3 TV. Because this is part of the broadcast, the
set-top cannot correct the video. You may be able to
minimize the border using the zoom feature on the TV.
42
QIP6200/QIP64xx User Guide
Problem
Possible Solution
The video is
horizontally
distorted on the
HDTV screen
A standard definition program is being stretched to fit the
HDTV screen:
The set-top is
making a humming
noise.
•
On the User Settings menu, check whether the 4:3
Override is set to Stretch. If you do not like the
distortion, you can choose another option. For
information about user settings, see “Optimizing
Your Output Settings."
•
If the display remains horizontally distorted, the
standard definition program is being stretched by the
HD channel provider.
The set-top includes an integrated hard drive and a fan
for cooling. During normal operation, the set-top emits a
low humming noise, similar to a personal computer. The
noise varies in volume occasionally when the speed of
the internal fan adjusts to changes in the temperature
around the set-top. Please note the hard drive will stay
on even when the set-top is turned off.
