INSTALL

Go to Web Admin then click on A/V Equipment Click "Add Device" at the bottom of the page Select "Motorola" from the Manufacturer drop down menu and "Cable Box < AV" from the Device Category drop down menu. Click "Apply Filter" then Click "Add Device Template"

A page will open- select the applicable options as they appear. This devices uses 3 fixed digits and pressing enter automatically changes to that entered channel. This only exports LiveTV, there is only (1) power button for both on and off and no DSP modes.

Select "Pronto Codeset - 0303" and close out of the windows using the "Close" button, not by click X or alt+f4, etc.

Next, go through the setup wizard and direct Sara to where you have the export of the DCT700 connected to an input on your LMCE setup. I have a Hauppauge PVR-150 and have the coax export from the cable box connected to the coax input on my PVR-150. I told Sara to use the antenna port of my PVR.

You may need to reload and regen your orbiter(s) to get a button placed under your media menu from the home UI screen. I called my cable box a DCT 700, so under my media menn, I have "LiveTV DCT 700" listed as an option- this is what I use to watch TV.

Now, if you want to be able to control the device, e.g. using a USB-UIRT- you need to first follow those directions to install that device. For me, I just had to plug in the USB-UIRT and the correct template was installed and configured. I then had to go to the web admin pages and under "A/V Equipment" under the "Devices", I found my DCT 700 and then selected the correct "COM Port on PC" that corresponded to the location of my USB-UIRT. A reload/regen later, and I am now able to control the DCT 700 from an orbiter.
