I am trying to transfer movies which I saved on my Motorola dvr to my computers external hard drive, I purchased a long usb cord and hooked it up to from computer to dvr, then downloaded Debut video capture device. Upon playing the movie I was trying to record and pressing "record" on the capture software the computer didnt recognize anything. My question is, is there some hardware I should be buying and installing on my computer to complete the download.

Tried it, same thing only worse, when I take the dvr away from tv I lose control of tv, unless I go out and pay $100.00 for 30 ft. of component cables.

The USB port on the DCT6400 may or may not be activated depending on what services Cogeco provides.

Thier user guide for the DCT6400 states:

Do not attempt to connect data devices ( USB) without contacting your serviceprovider. Advanced data features require theproper application and network infrastructure to operate.

You need to contact Cogeco Technical Support at 1-855-887-7774 and ask if what you are trying to do is possible with their PVR.
