Question about HP Televison & Video
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.

Hi there. Try these steps:
1. On restart, press F8. This should bring you to a screen with various boot options.
2. Select "Last known good configuration". Windows then may load correctly.
3. If this doesn;t work, try the same thing. This time select "boot in Safe Mode". If Windows now loads in Safe Mode you should be able to restart and Windows may load correctly after this.
4. If these two both fail, you may have to repair Windows...

Unplug it from the power for about 30 minutes and then try again. If it still doesn't work I would call DirecTV and discuss getting it replaced.

I am unfamiliar with this unit.
If you have scart connecters on both, connect av2 on the tv to av in on the recorder. set the recorder to record from av source.
You should now record a program, I think the static is the fact that composite is out from the dvd only, not an input, and in on the tv, not an output.

Testimonial: "though unfamiliar with unit, pob-h tried to help solve my problem! that's more than i can say about my own husband! thanks for trying!"
Is this a new issue that has shown up on the receiver? If so then you might have a bad hard drive in the receiver causing it to hang on boot up. Also these units require two inputs from the satellite antenna so that could be another possibility.
