Question about Televison & Video
I'm not sure where you are located but in NA HDMI uses HDCP which is high-bandwidth copywrite protection.
Basically what this means is that the HDMI signal is encoded and releases keys to unlock the signal. Every unit using HDMI must be HDCP compliant or else it will not work at all.
What this means is you cannot record an HDMI signal, you can only record using base-band video. You can watch the content straight off the cable box but you cannot record the Hi-def feed onto a DVD. You can only record using the analog connections.
If you only want to watch programs then I would suggest getting a PVR cable box instead.
If you only want to use the DVD recorder as a DVD player then connect it with HDMI directly to the TV and connect the Cable Box directly to the TV using HDMI and switch inputs on the TV when going between the two sources.
Let me know exactly what your wants/expectations are of the set-up and I will go into detail about the best way to connect and use everything.
I hope this helps,
