How long would you wait? Sound and Vision announced it as a new product in its November 2012 issue? Mine is due here Tuesday from rakuten.com for $208 delivered ($50 off for paying with a new Rakuten Mastercard that took about 10 days to get).

I never thought of that the TV being off was the culprit.
Actually it was only indirectly the culprit. The root culprit was explained by Ken.F in post 25842 , the HDMI cable connected to the cable box without the cable box able to get feedback it expects from a device on the other end of the cable. This is also the reason for the behavior reported in the several posts in thread I made about cable boxes not providing simultaneous analog cable box output while HDMI cables were connected to them, posts about which several people complained here.

Today I confirmed your experience with my new Etekcity 2X1 HDMI splitter, allowing me to add it plus one HDMI cable while removing 5 analog cable sets and 2 other devices that had been rigged up to work around the analog video output shutdown when the cable box got no feedback from HDMI. To perform the confirmation I moved a bedroom TV within cable reach of the main TV so I could watch both while moving cables and switching among sources and destinations. Now I have all cable box AV outputs in use and working whenever the cable box is turned on, whether TV and/or Magnavox and/or VCR are on or off; and, the Mag is able to record anamorphic instead of boxed by having routed one HDMI splitter output through a HDMI to composite converter to the Mag.

Hello - I have the Magnavox 513 and loved it. Charter just transitioned to all digital format so now every tv requires a cable box. Previously I was using a cable splitter so I could watch one show on cable and record another on the dvr, of course that no longer works. I am looking for a cheap easy way to do it. I have read a lot on this forum and am totally overwhelmed! Is there any device I can attach to the dvr so I can record something other than what I'm watching? Some kind of cablecard capable tuner?
