Motorola DCT6412

The Motorola DCT6412 is a high definition Digital Box with PVR functionality, capable of viewing HD channels, and accessing Video On Demand. In addition to this the DCT6412 is capable of viewing 3D* content in MPEG2 format up to 1080i resolution.The DCT6412 was released in three phases (the differences shown in the table below).


To view in HD: connect an HDMI cable (Phase III model) between your TV and Digital Box for HD picture and audio (HDMI carries both picture and audio). Alternatively, you can connect a component (red, green, blue) cable for video, and an RCA (red, white) cable for audio.


If you do not have an HD TV (i.e. component or HDMI ports are not available on the input panel of your TV): you can use a coaxial (Phase III model), RCA/composite or S-Video cable to connect this Digital Box to a standard definition TV.
