Good afternoon,

I have just purchsed a Pioneer 160 GB Hard Drive/DVD recorder and I wish to hook this up to my current HD cable box (Rogers Cable) and Sony 42" HDTV. I thought this was going to be quite easy in concept, but after trying for an hour or so I am stuck.
Before I tried to hook up the recorder and I had the cable box feeding the TV (a DVI connection to a HDMI connection). My TV only has this one HDMI connection.
Is it possible to hook up the three componets only using the HDMI/DVI connections?

Thanks in advance for any assistance/advice,

Trumpton

hi, are you still having problems with this? i'm thinking of getting an LCD TV and have it co-exist with my non-HD Pioneer recorder, i think its model DVR543HS. you may have the same model as me exept yours has the 160gb HDD and mine has the 80gb hardrive. please see my post on this and let me know if you can answer any of the questions. thanks.
