Now--first--connect the DVR cable box HDMI output to the HDTV HDMI input (use the lowest numbered one e.g. HDMI 1) for this connection. Use a standard (not Monster brand) HDMI cable for this connection. Then turn on the TV, turn on the cable box and switch the TV to the HDMI input. A picture should come on. You may even hear the audio on the TV speakers. If so, that is OK.
Then--connect the component video output of the DVD HT to the TV component 1 input. Use a three wire component video cable with red, blue and green connectors on each end. Connect color to color on both ends. Then turn on the DVD, put a DVD in the player and start it running. Switch the TV to the component input and it should show a pix. The audio will come from the DVD player speakers.
If your DVD player does have an HDMI output, you can use it and just connect as above to the second TV HDMI input.
To get audio from the cable box out of the DVD player speakers, you will need to connect an audio cable from the cable box go the HT amplifier. Use a set of RCA patch cables and go from the analog audio output of the cable box to the rear panel audio inputs of the DVD player. The owners manual for this unit will give directions on using this input. Since your HT unit does not have any other inputs, you will not be able to get Dolby Digital audio.
Hope this gives you food for thought. If so, and you have more questions, just come back in with a follow up.
Good luck. Remember, the owners manuals all have hook up connections diagrams. Sometimes they will help.

A problem like yours is NORMALLY NOT the TV set's fault....it's the Cable.
I'll bet you see thin lines moving across the entire picture...they are slanted like this >> \ \ \ \
That's generally caused by a bad ground on the antenna cable OR it can be the cable box's MODULATOR.
Try using your VIDEO OUTPUT off of your Cable box and see if the wavy lines are still present. If they are the Cable box needs swapped with a good unit.
You can also verify this problem by checking your TV with a DVD player...no lines indicate the TV is fine.
If you have problems with the DVD player's picture, then you must have dried out filtering capacitors on the Video board IN the TV set...
And THAT is not an easy fix if you do see lines with your DVD player.
Your DVD player may be set up to put out a different mode. Are you using the component cables or s-video? If it's the component cables, make sure you're player is putting out 480p. Also, try it with another set to see of you can localize the problem.
The complete convergence for the Philips projection sets usually requires a clear plastic overlay which fits over the screen and has many precisely spaced black dots. The remote is then used to enter the service mode and converge all 3 colors onto the dots, and then the settings are stored in an EPROM IC. This should only be done by someone with experience with the Philips sets.
Information as to the type of signal input is needed to resolve this problem. Does it appear in
zoom mode when playing a dvd, or just in catv mode? Some times an HD cable box must be reset to
a particular aspect ratio. This can be done by reading the owners manual of the cable box manufacturer. Scrivitron
