Hi,

First,On the rear of your DVR, which connections are using to connect to your TV?
If you have the SVHS connected to the TV, then connect the composite video to the Toshiba DVD recorder. If you have the Red/White audio leads connected to the TV, you will either need an RCA lead splitter (RCA to 2xRCA) or watch the DVR through the Toshiba. In this case, you can try hooking the box to the Toshiba DVD recorder using the SVHS and L/R audio cables and then connect the Toshiba to the TV using its SVHS and L/R audio outputs. To watch the DVR this way, the DVD recorder needs to be set to the video input the DVR is connected to.

If your DVR box is connected to the TV using HDMI or component and your TV is a HDTV set, this may make it a little more awkward to use your Toshiba DVD recorder with it. I'm not sure if the DVR will enable its SVHS and Composite outputs when watching HD , so if you hook up the SVHS to the Toshiba and get no picture, you will need to set the DVR to output a standard definition mode (or disconnect its HDMI and power off/on the box) to be able to record from it on the DVD recorder.

Please leave me comment , if you need further assistance

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.

Cable box remote doesn't work when tv is turned on.


I am having this same problem with our Mitsubishi LCD Flat Panel TV, Model LT-46246 ans our Scientific Atlanta remote cable box, same model as yours. We cannot use the remote at all to change the channel. I called Mitsubishi and they said they have never heard of this. I find this incredibly hard to believe. Time Warner, our cable provider says that it is not the box because it works when not hooked up to the TV. What a pain. I would love to hear if anyone else is having this problem or has a fix for it.

yes sounds about right what you are doing as long as you have 2 digital audio 'inputs' on your Bose to get the audio from the dvd player and cable box. Apart from your last part "I will then use Digital Audio from the Bose to the TV." The tv will only downrate the audio to two channel stereo, so its not worth puting audio through the tv as you only get stereo anyway, so might as well let the tvs speakers power it out themselves.
