directv to dvd recorder hook up

Directv hr23-700
Toshiba dr570KU dvd recorder
Samsung hd tv

I thought I understood this at least a little bit, but either I don't or ???
I can record by this set up I have:
red/wht/yellow from dtv box to 'in' on dvd recorder.
hdmi from dtv box to tv.
hdmi from dvd recorder to tv.
However, the pq on the dvd recordings is horrible!

Trying to improve it:
1) I sent a s video cable and a red/wht from the dtv box to the dvd recorder.
Couldn't get a picture, just sound.

Sent red/blue/green and red/wht audio cables from dtv box to dvd recorder, same thing, no picture.

I thought the s video replaced the yellow cable, so the s video and wht/red would give me sound and picture?
I also thought the 2nd scenario with the rgb and red/wht would work.
Anybody know what I'm doing wrong? Any ideas to get better pq?
Any help much appreciated!
