You can use a splitter. Or you can connect one connection from the Cable box to the TV and another connection from the Cable Box to the Recorder. By doing so, you can watch TV channels while recording a different program on the TV.
Your going to need a AV connection out of the DVR into the DVD or VCR, whichever you want to record to. Go with the highest quality cable you can because that will define the quality you end up with. If you have an HDMI connection out of the DVR and an HDMI connection into your DVD Recorder, that is definitally the way to go.
Hi piautewith the VIP622 receiver connecting to your DVD/VCR player you will need theinput/output jacks. To setup recordings to your VCR/DVD player, you will want torun from receiver output to VCR/DVD input and from VCR/DVD output to TV input. Thefan on the VIP622 receiver is just like the fan in a computer tower. Even ifthe receiver is off the fan will still run to keep unit the right temperature foryour DVR receiver.

You will not be able to record local station from a DTV converter connected thru a directv receiver unless there is a a/v input on the directv samsung receiver. Also check the user manual for this receiver if recording from an external source such as a DTV converter box is possible. The answer to seperating the DTV converter box from the directv samsung receiver is possible if your tv has multiple inputs. Try connecting the DTV box to the RF input and the directv samsung box to an a/v input then change inputs using the tv remote. you will need an av cable (yellow/ red/white) for the directv box and a rf jumper cable for the DTV box.
no it wont sorry. once a card is activated in a receiver it is married to that reciever. only directv sends out new cards to replace damaged ones. If you buy a new receiver it will come with a new card that you will have to activate
If you have your unit hacked, then you can use tytool to copy the programs to your computer. This will only work for programs that are recorded once the unit is hacked. Do a search for the zipper for series2 dtivos.
I know what you are asking for, and yes it can be done but not how you want to do it. The DVD recorder has coded into it software that prevents the DVD recorder from copying copywritten encrypted material (Video Cypher or Macrovision). What you need is another device to prevent the effects of the encryption (a company called SIMA makes devices that do this) the DVR would connect to the SIMA device and then to the DVD recorder.
