Motorola Advanced HD Set Top DCT6208

Enjoy the amazing picture and sound quality of your favourite High Definition (HD) Television broadcasts whenever it's convenient for you - with the help of an integrated Digital Video Recorder (DVR) that records and plays in HD format.

The Motorola DCT6208 combines the extraordinary features of digital cable — great programming options, interactive program guides, Video on Demand, and commercial-free, CD quality music — with digital video recording and the incredible picture quality and sound of high-definition television (HDTV).  This was Motorola's first PVR, which records roughly 12 hours of HD.  You can record one program while watching another.  Later models became dual tuners which allowed you to record two programs at once.

Includes remote & power cable w/ 30 day warranty.

Previous Generation model: DCT6200

Next Generation model: DCT6412

DCT6208 lets you pause, rewind, and play broadcasts, so you don't miss a moment of your favorite High Definition programming.

HDTV dramatically improves your picture quality. Where standard definition televisions show pictures that are "drawn" with hundreds of lines every fraction of a second, HDTV doubles or even triples the number of those lines. Depending on your television set, you may also be able to view movies in their original widescreen format, instead of viewing the narrow format of standard television. When you're viewing a smoother, more complete television picture, you get the feeling you're "really there."

The DVR features of the DCT6208 enable you to capture those HDTV signals in a digital format. If the phone rings or you need to leave the room, you can simply pause the broadcast, and resume watching when it's more convenient. An instant replay feature lets you quickly review what you just saw. And our Interactive Program Guide makes it easy to locate and record shows that interest you.

Take control of your television with the Motorola DCT6208! Watch movies, sporting events and other programs the way they were meant to be seen...on your schedule, not theirs.
