Question about Samsung LN-R268W 26 in. HD-Ready LCD Television
I have isolated the problem to the TV since it works on another TV with HDMI. (Although it has worked before on this TV which is the strange thing). When I try to change the source to HDMI on the Samsung LNR268W, the box is grayed out as if nothing is actually connected. I've tripled checked that everything is plugged in properly.
ok your tv does not come with the very best sound, you have to get a receiver 7.1 or you can use the optical wire , that's if the system you are using has that option.

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.

SOURCE: HDMI Cable problem
Well, first you might want to try another hdmi connection behind your TV.If it appears to have the same message,you need to check your TV setup and be sure the HDMI video is active.
Secondly,go with the recommendation of the set top box.You will use component video cable to connect from your set top box component video output(Y PR PB) to your TV (Y PR PB) and see if that actually work.If so,just use the cable box for the time being and call your cable company for another cable box to replace this one!

when you try to use your hdmi cable do you have the component your trying to use on? because the tv might need it to be powered up to recocnize the signal that, that input is in use
