When I hooked up my HD cable box using an HDMI cable, I had to go into the cable screen menus and select HDMI output. You may have to do something similar when using an S-video cable. Your DVD recorder doesn't seem to have an HDMI input, so you'll have to use the S-video or (worst case) composite video (red, white, yellow cords). Your cable box may also be scrambling the signal so that you can't record. That may be why you can record by bypassing the cable box.

"cable box to tv is hdmi cable"
Everything I've read on the web says cable box to tv connection must also use component (rgb) cables. The error is coming from the cable box (STB). All the Scientific Atlanta (SA) cable boxes seem have this Digital Rights Management (DRM) bug and the only way to be totally rid of the error is to replace the digital connection from box to the TV with an analog connection.

Not gonna happen. SA uses a proprietary file system. The USB is only designed for a keyboard or mouse when in a special diagnostics mode. The best you can do is use an eSata drive to the port on the back. IF you have the Mystro software on the box (most do) it won't even allow you to move programs to the storage drive until the box's drive is mostly full. Even then, I'm not sure that it gives you the option to choose what you want to offload.
You are best off buying a DVD burner (stand alone unit) or output the video to your PC. and re-encoding it to the file you want. Alternately, wait for the Series 4 TiVo with tru2way.
Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

SOURCE: I want to hook up
Yes, you can connect your Panasonic to record from the Explorer box. But there are some limitations. First of all not all programs will be recordable - some of them have signals in them that forbid recording. Then all the recording will be done in standard definition, not HD. Finally the image quality will be lower than what you would expect from a dvd, more like a VHS tape.
To record all you have to do is to connect the units using the S-Video cable then select the S-video as source in the Panasonic.
If you get an error message then there is something wrong with the cable - replace it and make sure it's properly plugged in.
