Following is an excerpt for Wikipedia article "How to use a Motorola DVR/Configuration". It explains the 5C status being set to "no", and indicats that in that case you need to check D06>CCI status instead. Another nail in the coffin, if that status is 0x02, the channel is encrypted. Anyway, article follows:

How To Check If 5C DTCP is Enabled

Tune to the channel you are checking for 5C DTCP use.

Turn the STB to Standby/Off and press OK/SELECT on the remote within 2 seconds to enter the Diagnostic Main Menu.

Use DOWN ARROW and then OK/SELECT to select the "d11 INTERFACE STATUS" option.

Look at "5C IMPLEMENTATION". A "0" indicates 5C DTCP is not being used, a "1" indicates 5C DTCP is being used.

Press OK/SELECT to go back to the Diagnostic Main Menu.

Press Power to exit the Diagnostic Main Menu and Power again to turn the

STB back on.

On some boxes, it may display "5C IMPLEMENTATION = NO." If this is the case, then you must do the following instead to check your 5C status:

Tune to the channel you are checking for 5C DTCP use.

Turn the STB to Standby/Off and press OK/SELECT on the remote within 2 seconds to enter the Diagnostic Main Menu.

Use DOWN ARROW and then OK/SELECT to select the "d06 CURRENT CHANNEL STATUS" option.

If "CCI" and "DRM" have values of "0x00" the channel is unencrypted. If either setting has any other value, such as "0x01" or "0x02", it indicates encryption.
If the "RC Flag" (Redistribution Control Flag) has any value other than "0x00", then the Broadcast Flag has been detected and the Firewire output is encrypted as a result.
