HDD200 Decoder
Welcome to the world of high definition television! You're about to change the
way you experience video entertainment as the picture you watch becomes so real,
so sharp, so detailed, that you'll be drawn into the scene like never before. Your
decision to use Motorola BCS equipment has placed you on the forefront of this
new technology. As a pioneer and leader in the field of digital high definition
signal transmission, we have worked to bring you the finest in home equipment by
using some of the same technology imbedded in our professional broadcast
systems.
Your new HDD200 decoder is an easy-to-use, easy to set up decoder that will
accept a high-speed data stream from your digital satellite or cable receiver and
convert it to the appropriate format for your high definition monitor or television.
It has been designed to integrate well with your existing home theater equipment
and provide many years of service. The instructions that follow will walk you
through the steps needed to install the product and begin enjoying the excitement
and sheer beauty of high definition television.
We have designed your HDD200 decoder to work with a number of Motorola
BCS set-top devices. These devices include satellite receivers and cable set-top
boxes. In this guide we will refer to all of these devices as “set-top boxes.”

Input Connections
Using the appropriate cables (additional A/V cables may be required, depending
on your specific installation), connect the following input terminals from your
cable or satellite set-top box or VCR equipment to the HDD200. See page 12 for
connection diagrams.
High Speed Data Input (1). The HDD200 decoder converts the HD data on the
High Speed Interface (HSI) to HD video and audio. Use the High Speed Data
cable (provided) to connect your set-top box to the HDD High Speed Data Input
port. Some satellite receivers require an adapter (provided) between the High
Speed Data cable and the satellite receiver.
Standard Video Input (7, 8). Composite Video and S-Video. The HDD converts
standard NTSC video to an HD format so that your High Definition Television
(HDTV) can display NTSC video. The standard video can be from your set-top
box, VCR, or other video equipment. The HDD accepts both NTSC composite
and S-Video.
In the simplest configuration, connect the video from your set-top box directly to
the HDD.
However, if you have a VCR connected to the output of your set-top box, then
connect the output of your VCR to the HDD standard video input.
If you have a more sophisticated entertainment system (that is, you use an A/V
receiver or other video switching equipment), take the video that was previously
connected to your NTSC television and connect it to the HDD.
Analog Audio Input (5). Along with the standard video source (set-top box,
VCR, or A/V receiver) that you just connected, is a pair of analog audio Left/Right
outputs. Connect these analog L/R outputs to the HDD200 decoder analog audio
input.
The HDD200 decoder will automatically route the analog audio input to the
analog audio output when HD video is not available. If HD is available, the
HDD200 decoder will output the HD service analog audio.
Dolby Digital Audio Input (3). Along with the standard video source (set-top
box, VCR, or A/V receiver) that you just connected, there may be a digital audio
(S/PDIF) output. If so, connect the digital audio output to the HDD200 decoder
digital audio input.
The HDD200 decoder will automatically route the digital audio input to the digital
audio output when HD video is not available. If HD is available, the HDD200
decoder will output the HD service digital audio.

HDD200 Decoder
Output Connections
Using the appropriate cables (additional A/V cables may be required, depending
on your specific installation), connect the following output terminals from your
HDD200 decoder to your HDTV or audio equipment. See page 12 for connection
diagrams.
Output Video Switches
Video Format (2). Set this selector based on the capability of your HD
compatible TV. Select the input format that your HD supports (480p, 720p, 1080i,
or native). You should use “Native” mode if your HDTV has the ability to display
and detect all HD formats. “Native” mode allows the HD decoder to display video
in its original format.
YPBPR / Select (11). Select the component video form used by your HDTV.
NOTE: The HDD200 supports four output modes: 480p, 720p, 1080i and
native. Select an output mode that is compatible with your HDTV. (Refer to
your HDTV user’s manual for mode options. The manual is provided by the
HDTV manufacturer.) For proper operation, select the output mode before
plugging in your HDD200.
NOTE: The HDD200 supports closed captions in 480p, 720p, and 1080i
modes. The unit does not support closed captions in the native output
mode on high definition channels.
Output Video Connections
YPBPR (10). If you have selected YPBPR Video component output, connect the
HDD’s three YPRPB connectors to your HDTV.
GBRHV (9,10). If you have selected the Video component output, connect the
HDD’s five connectors to your HDTV.
Output Audio Connections
Audio Outputs R, L (6). These audio outputs connect to your TV or your Dolby
brand Pro-Logic® 3 (4-channel) surround sound device if your unit is equipped
with this capability. Connect the right and left output ports to the right and left
input ports on your equipment.
Dolby Digital Output (4). If your entertainment center is enabled for Dolby
Digital AC-3 Version 5.1 (six channel) surround sound, connect one end of the
cable to this port and the other end of the cable to the device that hosts the
processor (ie. A/V receiver, DVD player, etc.).

Installation Instructions
Included with your HDD200 are the following components:
- 1 ea. HDD200 high definition decoder
- 1 ea. User Guide and 1 ea. warranty card
- 1 ea. 1/8" mini-stereo phone cable for use with the Motorola BCS digital

1. Connect the 9-pin side of the HSI connector to the MMAP port (Multi
Media Access Port) on your satellite receiver.
2. Connect the 1/8" stereo phone side of the HSI connector to the
HDD200 using the High Speed digital satellite receiver via the
corresponding colored connectors on the HDD200. There is an
optional S-Video port (N/A on the DSR410 series) that can be used for
analog video passthrough, instead of using the RCA connectors.
3. To connect audio outputs, you need a second set of RCA cables. Use
this set to connect the second row of audio outputs on your HDD200
to the corresponding ports on your television set or stereo.
4. Using either the RGB/HV ports (with a red/green/blue/yellow/white
cable) or the YPBPR ports on the back of your HDTV. The HDD200
has both RGB/HV and YPBPR connectors to work with various
different HDTV’s. Use the button on the rear panel of the HDD200 to
select the output.
5. Once you have made all of your audio and video connections to the
HDD200, the digital satellite receiver, the HDTV and stereo, plug in
your HDD200.
6. Turn the power on for all connected components; satellite receiver,
HDD200, HDTV and stereo (if connected).
7. Since HDTV’s have different output formats, use the switch on the
back of the HDD200 to adjust the output to your specific HDTV’s
format. The HDD200 supports 480p, 720p, 1080i, or native mode
formats.
