The Motorola DCX3400 is a high definition Digital Box with PVR functionality, capable of viewing HD channels and accessing Video On Demand. In addition to this, the Motorola DCX3400 is capable of viewing 3D* content in MPEG4 format up to 1080p resolution.


To view in HD: connect an HDMI cable 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, RCA/composite or S-Video cable to connect this Digital Box to a standard definition TV. See Wiring Diagrams below for a visual explanation of the setup options.
