Just got a dual tuner DVR from Comcast. It is connected to the TV, but I'm also trying to connect it through a DVD recorder into a second TV input. Used RCA connectors from DVR-out to DVD in. Get nothing but a blue screen. the DVD -> TV connection is good, since DVD's play fine. Any suggestions? Thanks. Gus
If you're using the SA8000HD, it won't output to the component out and composite/S video out at the same time. To get program to your DVD recorder - record to you DVR hard drive then use the "copy to VCR" mode to download to DVD recorder. You can still use the SA8000HD to record, play other recorded programs , or watch a live channel while doing the download. Its a little awkward but not too bad once you get used to the process.
gillcup - to use the "copy to VCR" mode on the SA8000HD, press the "mydvr" button in the upper center of the remote. This will bring up a list of the recorded programs on the DVR hard drive. Highlight the recording you wish to copy, press the select button - the menu that pops up will contain a "copy to VCR" option.
