Do not plug the DCT6200/DCT6208 power cord into a
wall outlet until you have completed all connections
between the DCT and other components.
Connector cables to be used:
• 6 ft coaxial cable
• Three-pronged component video cable
This diagram shows the High-Definition video
connection between your Motorola
DCT6200/DCT6208 and your High-Definition
television (HDTV). This is the primary diagram
for providing HD video and should be done
prior to the following audio configurations.
1. Using a coaxial cable, connect cable wall outlet to the CABLE IN coaxial input on the cable box.
2. Locate the Y Pb Pr inputs on your HDTV and the Y Pb Pr outputs on the cable box.
To make identification easy, these connecters are color-coded on the cable box
(Y = green, Pb = blue, and Pr = red). Colors may vary on your HDTV.
3. Using a three-jack component video connector, connect the Y output on the cable box
to the Y input on your HDTV. Do the same for the Pb and Pr connections.

1. Using the Video Only diagram, connect your coaxial cable to the Motorola cable box and the cable box Y Pb Pr HD video connection directly
to your HDTV.
The audio options are dependent on the audio inputs available on your Home Theater receiver. We’ve listed them in order of sound quality.
OPTION ONE and TWO – Optical or RCA Type Digital Audio (orange)
(These two connections are of similar quality. Either one or the other may be used.)
Connector cables to be used: Optical or RCA type audio cable
2. Locate the OPTICAL SPDIF output on the cable box and the OPTICAL SPDIF input on your digital Home Theater receiver.
This input may also be labeled Toslink on your digital Home Theater receiver.
3. Using an optical audio connector, connect the output on the cable box to the input on your digital Home Theater receiver.

2. Locate the orange RCA type SPDIF output on the cable box and the RCA type SPDIF or digital audio input on your Home Theater receiver.
3. Using a single-pronged RCA type audio connector, connect the output on the cable box to the input on your Home Theater receiver.
OPTION THREE – Baseband Audio
Connector cables to be used: Two-pronged RCA type audio cable (red & white)
3. Locate the AUDIO OUT L (white) & R (red) outputs on the cable box and the AUDIO IN L & R inputs on your Home Theater receiver.
4. Using a two-pronged RCA type audio connector, connect the L & R outputs on the cable box to the L & R inputs on your Home Theater receiver.
Remember L will go to L, and R will go to R.
• Choose 16:9 if you have a widescreen HDTV.
• Choose 4:3 Letterbox if you have a standard TV and you prefer to watch widescreen programming in its original aspect ratio.
• Choose 4:3 Pan Scan if you have a standard screen TV and you prefer that widescreen programming is cropped to fill your screen.
Think of this last choice as watching a theater-style movie that has been reformatted to fit your standard screen TV.
Y Pb Pr OUTPUT
Next, use the down arrow to select Y Pb Pr OUTPUT. This setting indicates the picture resolution you prefer when watching High-Definition
programming. The choices, listed in order of highest to lowest picture resolution, are 1080i, 720p, 480p, and 480i. Your selection will
depend on which format(s) your HDTV supports. To maximize your high-definition viewing experience, refer to your television set owner's
manual, and use the right arrow button to choose the setting that indicates the highest picture resolution that your television will support.
4:3 OVERRIDE
Finally, use the down button arrow to select 4:3 OVERRIDE. By selecting 480i or 480p you are telling the cable box to send Standard
Definition programming to your TV in its original broadcast format. Select OFF and the cable box will default to the resolution selected in
the Y Pb Pr OUTPUT setting above. To exit and save changes press the POWER or MENU button.
For more details on configuring your cable box output settings, including setting Closed Caption preferences, see the Motorola cable box
User Guide or visit www.motorola.com/Broadband.
* If the On Screen Menu does not appear on your HDTV screen, your TV may not support the default, standard definition setting (480i).

1. Using the Video Only diagram, connect your coaxial cable to the Motorola cable box and the cable box Y Pb Pr HD video connection directly
to your HDTV.
The audio options are dependent on the audio inputs available on your Home Theater receiver. We’ve listed them in order of sound quality.
OPTION ONE and TWO – Optical or RCA Type Digital Audio (orange)
(These two connections are of similar quality. Either one or the other may be used.)
Connector cables to be used: Optical or RCA type audio cable
2. Locate the OPTICAL SPDIF output on the cable box and the OPTICAL SPDIF input on your digital Home Theater receiver.
This input may also be labeled Toslink on your digital Home Theater receiver.
3. Using an optical audio connector, connect the output on the cable box to the input on your digital Home Theater receiver.

OPTION THREE – Baseband Audio
Connector cables to be used: Two-pronged RCA type audio cable (red & white)

4. Using a two-pronged RCA type audio connector, connect the L & R outputs on the cable box to the L & R inputs on your Home Theater receiver.
Remember L will go to L, and R will go to R.
• Choose 16:9 if you have a widescreen HDTV.
• Choose 4:3 Letterbox if you have a standard TV and you prefer to watch widescreen programming in its original aspect ratio.
• Choose 4:3 Pan Scan if you have a standard screen TV and you prefer that widescreen programming is cropped to fill your screen.
Think of this last choice as watching a theater-style movie that has been reformatted to fit your standard screen TV.
Y Pb Pr OUTPUT
Next, use the down arrow to select Y Pb Pr OUTPUT. This setting indicates the picture resolution you prefer when watching High-Definition
programming. The choices, listed in order of highest to lowest picture resolution, are 1080i, 720p, 480p, and 480i. Your selection will
depend on which format(s) your HDTV supports. To maximize your high-definition viewing experience, refer to your television set owner's
manual, and use the right arrow button to choose the setting that indicates the highest picture resolution that your television will support.
4:3 OVERRIDE
Finally, use the down button arrow to select 4:3 OVERRIDE. By selecting 480i or 480p you are telling the cable box to send Standard
Definition programming to your TV in its original broadcast format. Select OFF and the cable box will default to the resolution selected in
the Y Pb Pr OUTPUT setting above. To exit and save changes press the POWER or MENU button.
For more details on configuring your cable box output settings, including setting Closed Caption preferences, see the Motorola cable box
User Guide or visit www.motorola.com/Broadband.
* If the On Screen Menu does not appear on your HDTV screen, your TV may not support the default, standard definition setting (480i).

• Choose 16:9 if you have a widescreen HDTV.
• Choose 4:3 Letterbox if you have a standard TV and you prefer to watch widescreen programming in its original aspect ratio.
• Choose 4:3 Pan Scan if you have a standard screen TV and you prefer that widescreen programming is cropped to fill your screen.
Think of this last choice as watching a theater-style movie that has been reformatted to fit your standard screen TV.
Y Pb Pr OUTPUT
Next, use the down arrow to select Y Pb Pr OUTPUT. This setting indicates the picture resolution you prefer when watching High-Definition
programming. The choices, listed in order of highest to lowest picture resolution, are 1080i, 720p, 480p, and 480i. Your selection will

4. Using a two-pronged RCA type audio connector, connect the L & R outputs on the cable box to the L & R inputs on your Home Theater receiver.
Remember L will go to L, and R will go to R.
• Choose 16:9 if you have a widescreen HDTV.
• Choose 4:3 Letterbox if you have a standard TV and you prefer to watch widescreen programming in its original aspect ratio.
• Choose 4:3 Pan Scan if you have a standard screen TV and you prefer that widescreen programming is cropped to fill your screen.
Think of this last choice as watching a theater-style movie that has been reformatted to fit your standard screen TV.
Y Pb Pr OUTPUT
Next, use the down arrow to select Y Pb Pr OUTPUT. This setting indicates the picture resolution you prefer when watching High-Definition
programming. The choices, listed in order of highest to lowest picture resolution, are 1080i, 720p, 480p, and 480i. Your selection will
depend on which format(s) your HDTV supports. To maximize your high-definition viewing experience, refer to your television set owner's
manual, and use the right arrow button to choose the setting that indicates the highest picture resolution that your television will support.
4:3 OVERRIDE
Finally, use the down button arrow to select 4:3 OVERRIDE. By selecting 480i or 480p you are telling the cable box to send Standard
