have moto box 6412, can i also use direct tv box R15?

Right now I'm stuck using the crappy local cable co. they use the motorola 6412 with only 90hrs. of space yuk!! I also have a new never ever used direct tv box model # R15-300 can I daisy chain together or is there somebody out there who knows how to upgrade the moto box? and yes I,m a new jack to this . thank you .

The DirecTV boxes are only

The DirecTV boxes are only designed to receive input from satellite, so no, you cannot use a DirecTV box to receive input from cable.

Some DirecTV boxes also can receive input from OTA, but even if the R15-300 can do so, I believe that all DirecTV boxes receive their menu info from satellite, so you would not be able to use it with just OTA either.

If you want to replace your cable company box, your best option is to get a Tivo.
