I dont know about your particular hd hookup , but I take the hdmi cable out of my dish reciever/dvr [digital video recorder] and run it straight to the hdmi input #2 in the back of my apex 40 in lcd-hd-tv
I think take the hdmi output from the at&t u-verse cable box and plug it into the hdmi input of your 70 in sharp smart tv
that will get the input signal from your cable box ,both video & audio, into your tv set. on the back of your tv set there should be audio outputs for home theater audio systems that would plug into the audio inputs of the home theater system.
prehaps i am wrong because you say that your yamaha is a home theater* reciever.* is the yahama more than a home theater audio system? What does it recieve?
Idea-- the salesman that you bought it from should be willing to help tell you how to hook it up.
also consider that there are many different ways to hook up vcr's and then dv recorders and dvd recorders and external 2 tera bite hard drives into my tv & dvr . I got that all hooked in & a rats nest of wires. so i can record in hd or sd,on vhs or dvd or dvr point is that you cant hurt anything by plugging the wrong plug into the wrong jack, as long as the same type of plug goes into the same type of jack. If its right,it works, if its wrong, it wont work until you plug it into the proper jack.
im sorry ,im 65 am not into knowing all the latest and greatest cutting edge tech ,but i am begining to catch up on my hobby, movie recording tech.
leave coaxcil cable on dvr ;unplug the colored wires from the dvr output and plug them into the output of the recorder;plug a second set of colored wires into output of dvr and into input of recorder;be sure to set recorder input to proper setting on recorder (input one or two) now you should be able to record what your dvr plays or just use it as a dvd player ; you will need to have all three on to watch tv though.
Your recording will record onto your one DVR box, for playback on either tv. On many satelite boxes you have to search for the program you want by entering the name. Then select the program and select to record the future broadcast.
No offense intended, but...get a life and a new TV and a cable box with DVR...pre-record your shows and later record on Toshiba DVD recorder using HDMI cable, available at Fry's for $10. Also, you might still be able to do what you want if you are willing to read every word of every page of the user manual...been there done that...it wouldn't work for me either until I did same...I know, only read the user manual as a last resort, so...
Buy a recorder that records both +/-R and double layer disks.
I haven't seen a Comcast dvr but you should connect it to the svideo out port of the dvr to the svideo in of the recorder and the audio out to the audio in. If the Comcast doesn't have svideo use the video ports instead
I know what you are asking for, and yes it can be done but not how you want to do it. The DVD recorder has coded into it software that prevents the DVD recorder from copying copywritten encrypted material (Video Cypher or Macrovision). What you need is another device to prevent the effects of the encryption (a company called SIMA makes devices that do this) the DVR would connect to the SIMA device and then to the DVD recorder.
