My cable company finally started offering hd and I picked up the new box this morning, a motorola dct 6200. They wanted around $40 to install it, and after a little bit of argument they let me pick it up to install myself. I wanted to hook it up to my projector which through the component input is capable of displaying 480p, 720p and 1080i signals. I connected the box, plugged it in, and it does not want to come on. There is no video signal. I have tried connecting it both through component to my projector and with composite to a standard def tv. The on/off button does not seem to do anything. After plugging it in, I get a black screen on my standard def tv and about once a minute the black screen flashes off on the tv, and the led on the cable box flashes 88888. There is nothing in the manual about this and I am loathe to call the cable company because they will want to send their technician out to look at it and charge me the installation price. Any help would be much appreciated.
