RCA DRC8052N DVD recorder

I am using an HDMI connection to my TV. When I move to the HDMI2 connection mode on my TV, the connection mode I use to access my DVD recorder, the TV shows a "NO signal" sign. I do not think my TV is recognizing my DVD recorder. Anyone have a solution to this problem.

    no signal from hdmi connection from my drc8052n dvd recorder.

    I bought a new tv that has 3 hdmi inputs i tried every input and got no signal and different hdmi cables once again new and still no signal from either input the component worked fine but no hdmi so i returned the tv thinking it might have been the tv it was a Vizio 42" plasma . So I end up buying a samsung and same thing no signal on the hdmi input so it has to be the dvd recorder. Probably does'nt really have hdmi support.

Try the input button on the DVD remote. You may have to move it to AV1 to get a picture??? Just a suggestion.

How dumb of me never realize after having this dvd player for almost 2 years that there is a hdmi button on the remote I thought the TV would recognize the signal automatically just like the rca and component inputs I never had to use that feature since I never had a tv with hdmi inputs till now I was paying real close attention to my remote and there it was a small black button with HDMI in small black letters right next to the set up button and I use that button often. when I pressed the button it gave me the option of 480i 480p 720p and 1080i as I kept pressing the HDMI button. It works fine Im glad I got it going I thought I would have to buy another player. There MY PROBLEM SOLVE. Hope this works for for anyone trying to figure out this problem unless they tried it already.

No sound or picture from dvd

And you have selected the HDMI2 input in the TV menu? If yes, try the dvd on another TV, if you have one. Also try reversing the HDMI cable.

Problems establishing audio output from DVD RW to TV

If you own a Digital Video Recorder, such as TiVo, or a DVR from a Cable or Satellite provider, then you know you can record to the device's hard drive to view TV shows at a later time, much like the old VCR. However, saving those TV shows becomes difficult as the Hard Drive starts to fill up. The answer to saving your shows is to record them to DVD! This can be accomplished easily by hooking up a DVD Recorder to your DVR
Here's How:
  1. 1)record a TV show on your DVR that you want to save to DVD!
  2. 2)Turn on the DVR, DVD Recorder and the TV that the DVD Recorder is connected to. In my case, I have my Samsung DVD Recorder (no hard drive) hooked up to my TV via an RCA Audio/Video cable from the rear outputs on the DVD Recorder to the rear RCA inputs on my TV. I use a seperate DVD Player for playing DVDs, but if you use your DVD Recorder as a player as well, use the best cable connections you can to connect to the TV. See the articleTypes of A/V Cables for more info.
  3. 3)Connect an S-Video or RCA video cable and composite stereo cables (red and white RCA plugs) from the DVR to the inputs on your DVD Recorder. If your TV has Component inputs, connect the Component Out from the DVD Recorder to the Component In on the TV, otherwise you can use S-Video or Composite. You will still need to use RCA audio with your video connection.
  4. 4)Change the input on your DVD Recorder to match the inputs you are using. Since I'm using the rear S-Video input, I change my input to "L1", which is the input for recording using the rear S-Video input. If I was recording using the front analog cables it would be "L2", the front Firewire input, "DV". The input select can typically be changed using the DVD Recorder remote.
  5. further instructions continued in my next comment post please read.

Need diagram to connect Motorola DVR, Panasonic DMR-E recorder, A/V Receiver, and HDTV

Your not going to be able to connect in series (not sure if thats your goal) since your limited by the type of connections you can use. Your receiver is going to have to be switched depeneding on what source you want to listen too. DVR, DVD, etc. HDMI is going to important for your TV connection. Radio Shack has cheap HDMI cables.
So... connect HDMI from DVR to HDTV this will give you sound and picture to TV. Connect DVR optical or coaxial ( RCA if you dont care about surround) to Receiver to give you DVR sound thru Receiver input.
Connect DVD to receiver via optical/coaxial/rca for DVD sound thru receiver (again RCA is not recommended for surround).
Connect Component video to HDTV(or HDMI if TV has second HDMI input) to give you video from DVD.
Connect Yellow video or S-video from DVR to DVD recorder input to allow recording from DVR. Also connect red/white audio to (same) DVD input.
That should cover it.

No picture on hdmi2

First of all connect the Direct TV box to HDMI 2 and see if it works there. If it does then the next step is to connect the DVD player to HDMI and see if it wors there. If not then connect the DVD player to the TV using the component inputs and if the DVD player works on those. If it does then maybe the HDMI interface in the DVD player no longer works as it needs to communicate with the TV.
