Hi all,

Does anybody here know where I can get the discrete codes for Motorola DVR 6412? In particular I am looking for the ON/OFF discrete codes.

Thank you.

Do you know that they exist? As far as I know, none of the Motorola STBs support discrete power codes.

Thanks Rob for letting me know that there are no discrete codes for 6412, I'll just leave my 6412 always on.

In fact, I always leave mine on as I have seen a few issues if they are off. Otherwise, I would be asking the same thing.

I think you can simulate discrete ON/OFF with macros:

ON: MENU-POWER-POWER
OFF: MENU-POWER

Thanks for the emulation information. I added it to the Wikibook for the Motorola DVR.

The implication being that the MENU button acts as a discrete on command, is that correct?

Basically, hitting menu when OFF displays a setup screen. Hitting POWER once will then turn it off. Hitting Power twice turns it off and back on (a drawback is that on a 34xx/64xx series, you will revert to tuner 1, so your channel could change.) If it's ON, MENU shows the mini-menu (if using iGuide), with the power sequence working similar to above.

Basically, the key to hitting MENU is that when it's off, hitting MENU sort-of turns it on to display the setup screen, so that the POWER key now works the same as if it's already on.
