I just bought a 515 and am having issues getting it setup.
I have Direct TV HR24 box. Three tv's are hooked to it, and I use an RF remote in my house.

The tv right next to it is using the composite ports. 20 feet away an HDMI cable goes underneath the house into bedroom #1. 30 feet away an S video cable runs into another tv into bedroom2 . It works great.

With all this stuff hooked in the back, I'm trying to figure out how to get this device to work. I'd like to put this DVR in the living room (composite port) or the bedroom with the HDMI cable.

I was thinking of buying this device and hooking it into bedroom 1

HDMI to Composite /S-Video Converter 3RCA CRT TV CVBS

(you can find it on Amazon, I can't post the URL here)

Would this work? If not, what's the best way to do this?

There already was a thread for that recorder.

Suggest you post this in the "sticky" thread at the top of the forum page.
