You may not necessarily have anything incorrectly set up, but there are a couple of things that I would suggest trying.
First, you'll want to make sure that your TV is set to the correct input source. Some TV's will require that the input source be changed in order to display any signals from an external device, like your HD-DVR. This can typically be done by accessing the main video menu using your remote control.
According to information provided by the manufacturer, you should be able to change the input source for this model TV (Samsung LN46A750) by doing the following:
* Press the "Menu" button on your remote control
* Press the "Up" or "Down" arrow button to select "Input," then press "Enter"
* Press "Enter" to edit the "Source List"
* Highlight the signal source for the HD-DVR, and press "Enter"
Next, you may want to try updating the TV's firmware. In some instances, simply updating a TV's programming can eliminate any potential hardware or software conflicts between two devices. To update the TV's firmware you will need access to a computer and a USB flash drive. Step-by-step instructions and the firmware update itself are available through the following website:
Make sure to read all the warnings and disclaimers available though, as your TV may already have a more up-to-date firmware version than the one that can be obtained through Samsung's support page.
Should neither of these address the issue, you may wish to see if connecting your HD-DVR to a different HDMI input solves the problem. Much like computers, TV's have been occasionally known to have faulty inputs or loose internal connections.
If all else fails, I’d suggest contacting the manufacturer for further assistance. In many cases manufacturers are able to provide over-the-phone troubleshooting support, in addition to having access to a wider variety of possible remedies for hardware problems.
Hope this helps you out.
Go Ahead. Use Us.

Probably a handshake problem with the cable box. It is common for cable boxes to have HDMI handshake problems. Hook the box up using the component cables and you should be fine

I finally found a fix to this! YAY. I thought I might have to return the TV. I have the Phillips 42PFL5603D, but should work for other models.
On the TV press menu picture settings---picture---dynamic contrast (turn off) AND active control, turn off
If you have Comcast Moto box: on the Cable box go menu--->setup--->cablebox set up---RF BYbass set to ON
If you have a non-Comcast Moto Box, I'm sure there is an RF bypass setting in the menu. You'll just have to look for it. Another fix was close saying to only turn of the active control, but it took all 3 of these for it to work consistently. The latter let it work for all of 30 seconds.

I called Verizon and exchanged my STB from a QIP 6416 to a QIP 7216 and it solved the HDMI audio problem. This looks like the fix.

If by regular cables you are talking about the standard red/yellow/white composite cables, then, yes, it will affect HD as composite cannot send an HD signal. Only HDMI and component (red/blue/green video only) cables.
Change to HDMI and let us know if it works for you.
