Here's an update to my update. I was able to connect the Panasonic DVR to record off of cable. First of all I want to thank mickinct for encouraging me to keep trying.
The quality is Standard resolution, not HD, when recording so when I watch cable in high res I have the HDMI cable connected to the X1 box. To record I have to move the HDMI cable to the Panasonic DVR. When I turn off the DVR I lose the picture and audio so I have to reconnect the HDMI cable back to the X1 box.
I also have to use the red, white and yellow cables, attached from Panasonic DVR to the monitor.
