If you want to hook up the PC to play media, I suggest you install software called Plex for free (plex.tv). The Roku has the Plex app so you can play through the Roku or most smart TVs, Amazon Fire, or directly via an HDMI cable from your PC to the TV. It will automatically sort your media once you go through the setup and it is probably the best variant of the KODI/XBMC media systems out there for all platforms.
If you want to record from your DVR to your PC, that gets more complicated. The HDMI cord usually has certain protocols that keep you from recording copyrighted programs DMAC (Digital Media Access Control) so you'll need a video input card that has RCA inputs for red/green/blue or a yellow video input and either a red/white RCA input for sound or an SPDIF Infrared (IR) sound cable and use the software that comes with the tuner card.
Red, Green and Blue cables together typically denotes a component video signal - an Analog, High Definition transportation for video. This cable does not carry audio, you need another cable to hook up audio between the DVR and receiver. You can use either an RCA stereo cable (red and white), optical-audio, HDMI, or a whole plethora of other audio cables. I would recommend optical or HDMI to get the most out of your system.
I have the same problem. It only occurs with my HD DVR (HDMI cable), not my blue ray (HDMI cable), or my xbox and wii (component video). Video and audio cutout is random and drives the family nuts. I am desperate for a solution.
You need to buy a Bose VS 2, video enhancer. Your cable/sattelite, vcr and aux connect to the VS 2 and the VS2 connects one HDMI cable to the TV. The VS2 then upconverts DVDs played on the lifestyle through the VS2/HDMI.
I have a DCT6416 which is essentially the same unit but with a bigger hardrive. I just had the same problem and was able to fix it. First connect your DVR to your TV with the composite RGB cables and disconnect the HDMI. Then power your unit on. Then power it off (using the power on the DVR not a remote) and immediatly press the menu button on the DVR (not the remote). A white screen with black writing will come up. Using the down arrow buttons on your DVR go to the bottom line where it says "reset factory default" Toggle down to that and then use the right arrow key and your settings will be reset. Then exit out of that by powering off. Now remove your composite cables and replace the HDMI. You should be back up and running.
When I hooked up my HD cable box using an HDMI cable, I had to go into the cable screen menus and select HDMI output. You may have to do something similar when using an S-video cable. Your DVD recorder doesn't seem to have an HDMI input, so you'll have to use the S-video or (worst case) composite video (red, white, yellow cords). Your cable box may also be scrambling the signal so that you can't record. That may be why you can record by bypassing the cable box.
After few years of service with different TV providers I have problem with my TV. Last night my Samsung LTP326W just did the same think on HDMI connector and no mater what you do it will not turn HDMI video... it's connected to Verizon/Motorola DVR I called Verizon and they promptly replace DVR and HDMI cable but it didn't help at all, also sometimes when you power on/off I get message: The HD Content Protection of your display has been compromised Please use the YPBPR outputs for your HD connection...
When I switch to component cable it works just fine.
