GETTING STARTED
Before you connect your DCT6200, be sure to review the following:
•
Disconnect power from the DCT6200 before connecting or changing cable connections.
•
For basic cable connections, use 75-ohm coaxial cables equipped with F-type connectors.
•
A coaxial cable is provided to connect the DCT6200 to your cable wall outlet. A component video
cable and left/right audio cables are also provided to connect the DCT6200 to your TV.
•
If you are connecting a coaxial cable from the TO TV/VCR connector on the DCT6200 to the coaxial
CABLE/ANTENNA IN connector on the TV, you must tune your TV to channel 3 or 4 to view the
DCT6200 output. Connecting the DCT6200 in this manner will remove its high definition video
output capability.
CAUTION!
Do not place anything on top of the DCT6200, especially other home entertainment components. Be sure to
provide adequate ventilation to prevent overheating.

CONNECTING YOUR DCT6200
This section describes how to connect the DCT6200 to your home entertainment system. Instructions and
diagrams are included for the following connections to the DCT6200:
•
High Definition Television (HDTV)
•
A/V Receiver
•
HDTV and D-VHS Digital VCR
•
Stereo TV
•
Stereo TV and Stereo VCR
•
Stereo TV and Mono VCR
•
A/V Receiver, TV, and Stereo VCR
•
Stereo TV, Stereo or Mono VCR, and DVD
Video Options
Before connecting your TV to the DCT6200, you must determine which type of video connection to use.
The DCT6200 offers five different video options. The options, listed in order from highest to lowest video
quality, are:
•
DVI
•
IEEE 1394
•
Component video (YPbPr)
•
S-Video
•
Video (also referred to as composite video)
To determine whether your TV features DVI, IEEE 1394, component video, S-Video, or composite video,
check the manual supplied with your TV to determine the best connection available.
High definition video can only be viewed with DVI, IEEE 1394, or component video connections.
DVI, IEEE 1394, and component video allow you to view both high definition (HD) and standard TV
programming. Composite video and RF coaxial connections allow you to view only standard definition TV
programming.
If your TV has a DVI input, connect to the DVI-D connections on your DCT6200 instead of the IEEE 1394
or component video connections (Y, Pb, and Pr connectors).
If your TV doesn’t have a DVI input but does have an IEEE 1394 connector, connect to the IEEE 1394
connection on your DCT6200 instead of the component video connections (Y, Pb, and Pr connectors).
The IEEE 1394 is a video and audio connection, so no audio connections are required if you are using
the IEEE 1394 connection.
If component video connections are not available on your TV, use the S-Video connections.

Options are OFF, 480i or 480p. If the YPbPr Output is set to 480i, this setting becomes
redundant and defaults to OFF.
This setting provides the ability to specify how 4:3 pictures are to be displayed on your TV.
Most TV programming is 4:3 aspect ratio (square).
Selecting OFF will display regular TV programs that are 4:3 aspect ratio in widescreen format.
If you have a widescreen TV, black bars will be placed on the left and right of the picture to fit
your screen. Selecting OFF when you have a 4:3 TV Type may result in a small picture with
black bars on all four sides of the screen.
Selecting 480i will transmit TV programs that are not high definition in their original 480i
format. Some TVs cannot display 480i format on their component video inputs (Y Pb Pr).
Check your TV User Guide for more information.
If your DCT6200 is connected to your VCR and you record programming using your VCR,
setting 4:3 Override to 480i will cause your VCR to record any graphic overlays (program
guides, closed captions, on-screen menus) that were displayed during the recorded program,
regardless of the YPbPr Output and video output combinations.
Selecting 480p will convert TV programs that are not high definition to a higher quality 480p
format. Some TVs cannot display 480p format on their component video inputs (Y Pb Pr).
Check your TV User Guide for more information.

TROUBLESHOOTING
Before calling your service provider, review this troubleshooting guide. This information is to help you
quickly solve a problem. If your problem still exists, contact your service provider.
Problem
Possible Solution
The DCT6200 will not
power on
Verify that the AC power cord is connected to the DCT6200 and an AC outlet.
If the DCT6200 is connected to a switched outlet on another unit, verify that that unit is
powered on.
Press the POWER button on the DCT6200 front panel instead of the remote control. The
batteries in the remote control may be depleted.
The DCT6200 may have received a software update and may not power on while the new
software is being installed. Try again in a few minutes.
The remote control
does not work
Verify that the remote control is in “Cable” mode.
Verify that there are no obstructions between the remote control and the DCT6200. Aim
the remote control directly at the DCT6200 front panel, not the TV or VCR.
The angle between the remote control and the DCT6200 may be too large. Stand in front
of the DCT6200 and not too far to either side.
Firmly press and release operation keys one at a time.
Try changing channels using the buttons on the DCT6200 front panel.
Check the batteries in the remote control. Install new batteries if needed.
There is no audio
when viewing cable
channels
Verify that the MUTE button on the DCT6200 or the remote control has not been pressed.
Press MUTE on the remote control to restore sound.
If the DCT6200 audio output is connected to the TV, verify that the MUTE button on the TV
has not been pressed.
If the DCT6200 audio output is connected to a home theater receiver, verify that the
receiver is set to the appropriate input source and the mute button on the receiver has not
been pressed.
Verify that you have the correct cables for the audio ports.
Verify that the audio cables are firmly connected between the DCT6200 and the audio
playback device (TV, receiver, etc.).
There is no audio
from the center
and/or surround
speakers of a home
theater receiver
connected to the
DCT6200
Not all Dolby Digital programs feature full 5.1 surround sound. In some cases, the
programs may only contain left and right stereo audio.
Verify that the SPDIF cable (coaxial or optical) is firmly connected to the DCT6200 and
the home theater receiver.
Verify that the home theater receiver is set to a surround sound audio mode (Dolby
Digital, Dolby Pro Logic II, Dolby Pro Logic).
Verify that the receiver is properly configured to work with all connected speakers.

a`qSOMM=rëÉê=dìáÇÉ
Problem
Possible Solution
There is no video on
the TV screen
Verify that the TV is powered on and set to the appropriate input source for the DCT6200.
Verify that the DCT6200 is powered on and tuned to an authorized cable channel.
Verify that the coaxial cable feed is firmly connected to the DCT6200 and the wall jack.
The DCT6200 DVI output may not yet be enabled. Use the component video (Y Pb Pr)
output instead.
If the DCT6200 video output is connected to a home theater unit, verify that the home
theater unit is powered on and set to the appropriate input source.
Not all HDTVs can display every output format (1080i, 720p, 480p, or 480i) available on
the DCT6200. Enter the User Settings menu and cycle through the available output
formats until a picture displays on the TV.
Verify that all video cables between the DCT6200 and the TV are firmly connected.
There are no
graphics, closed
captions, or program
guides appearing on
the TV screen
The DCT6200 cannot generate graphics on all video outputs at all times. If the DCT6200
is set to 1080i, 720p, or 480p output format, graphics are only available on the high
definition video outputs (DVI and component video). If the DCT6200 is set to 480i,
graphics are available on all video outputs.
If the DCT6200 is connected to a standard definition (SD) TV, verify that the DCT6200 is
configured to use the 480i output mode.
Verify that closed captions on the DCT6200 have been enabled in the User Settings
menu.
Programming
recorded by the VCR
contains graphics,
closed captions, or
program guides
If your DCT6200 is connected to your VCR and you record programming using your VCR,
setting 4:3 Override to 480i will cause your VCR to record any graphic overlays (program
guides, closed captions, on-screen menus) that were displayed during the recorded
program, regardless of the YPbPr Output and video output combinations.
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 in the User Settings menu. This enables most wide screen TVs to
stretch the video to fill the screen (see the TV manual for information about stretching 4:3
video).
The 4:3 Override feature can be configured from the User Settings menu.
If the DCT6200 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.
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 DCT6200 is tuned to a 4:3
program.
Set the TV TYPE to 4:3 Pan-Scan. This enables the DCT6200 to remove the black bars
above and below the picture when possible.
Some standard definition (SD) programs are broadcast in the letterbox format with black
bars above and below the picture. Some wide screens TVs offer a zoom feature that may
be able to remove the black bars (see the TV manual for information about zooming 4:3
video).
33
Problem
Possible Solution
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 cause 4:3 standard
definition (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 DCT6200 cannot correct the video. You
may be able to minimize the border using the zoom feature on the TV.
