The Panasonic doesn't detect the presence of the signal on the antenna input so it just skips it. shut down the player and turn the cable box on before attempting to switch sources.
But why aren't you using the Composite RCA connection on the cable box ? Not only you would get a much better image but the tv would detect that change in the AV source and should switch by itself. If it doesn't then the control processor is faulty and the entire mainboard will will have to be replaced

By digital audio cable do you mean optical cable? Please clarify this so that I can suggest what you can do.

No sound from AV receiver, sound only from TV


What brand/model is the receiver. Some have a function where you can select if the audio is passed through to the tv, or output from the receiver's speaker jacks.

This dvd recorder worked PERFECTLY when I had digatal cable. As soon as I up graded to HD with a HD box from comcast, I cannot get the recorder to record anything. I hooked it up the same way as I did with...


The HD box from your cable company only sends High Definition Video signal which DVD does not support. Your DVD recorder "CANNOT RECORD THIS PICTURE" because it can not process (see) the High Definition (HD) Signal.
To record from an HD reviver you would need a HD recorder (Blu-ray) very expensive The standard practice for recording from a HD cable receiver id to use an DVR here is a link to one for about $100 some models will have a standard video output you could connect your dvd recorder to.

How do I connect to Sharp HDTV and Comcast cable


Your dvd recorder only has rca, red white yellow inputs it wont allow you to record in HD, although you can play your comcast box any hd, regular digital through and record. Hook up the comcast box if HD through preferably HDMI if not get one from comcast. The HD box is the only box that allow HDMI, component and regular RCA and some RF out. This way you can play HD to your set but also record through RCA or RF again will not allow for HD record unless its TiVo. Hope this helps

Hookup diagram for Yamaha avr-863 receiver


It's the other way around.

Hook up the Cable box to the Amp; and the blu-ray to the amp, then connect amp to LCD.

you want to use the best available options for audio:
HDMI > Digital Optical > Digital Coax > standard RCA

And the similar for video:
HDMI > Component > SVideo > RCA cables

I would connect Blu-Ray via HDMI to Amp, and Cable box via HDMI to Amp. If your cable box does NOT support HDMI, but you have an HD package, ask your cable company for an upgraded box.

How to hook up everything!


I have similar equipment.

You should use an audio digital cable to connect the bluray to the Yamaha receiver and another digital audio cable to connect the HD box to the Yamaha receiver.

Hope this helps.
