I don't understand why anyone is fishing for a user to say something against the rules. It doesn't matter what he IS doing as long as what he does say is within guidelines.

Apparently the Roku outputs "encrypted" HDMI that can only be legally decrypted by a TV? It makes no sense to me - I wonder if it's ever been tested in court?

Who knew "flammable" and "inflammable" mean the same thing???

My Roku 4 is connected to my Pioneer receiver with no problems. The problem is in trying to record the Roku output. Their is no recorder that has hdmi input, except maybe some black market Asian import.

Am I the only one that thinks this has gone off topic? These devices ONLY record in standard definition, regardless of input used.
Even if you used an RF Modulator for $1000 to feed the signal to the HD antenna input, it's still recorded in SD.

As far as I know that falls under the safe harbor of analog sunset.
I suggest starting a new thread to discuss methods for capturing and recording in HD... and getting in trouble with mods there.

To all the helpful people who responded to my post--THANKS.
Too many issues. Forget it. I get it.
Try this--how to connect a second Mag (515) so that all the equipment listed in my original post can still function?
Connections? Equipment needed?

Are you looking to replace the 867 with the 515? (Easiest option). I agree the HSD feature of the 515 is very desirable, especially if you do a lot of dubbing/recording.
Where do you do most of your recording from? Dish receiver, OTA?
You could daisy chain the OTA coax from the 867 to the 515 to the TV, provided the built-in amplifiers in each Mag do not cause too strong a signal, which could cause tuning issues with either the TV, or the second Mag in the chain.
Or you could reserve one of the Mags for OTA recording only, and the other for recording from the Dish receiver. Which one you use for each would depend on which content gets recorded more frequently (use the 515 for the more frequent activity).
In order to see the output from both Mags on the TV, one of them will need to use composite out to the TV, provided it has them, or use an HDMI switch like this one:

In your original post you asked about using the 515 as a dedicated Roku recorder. If that is your goal, you might want to get an HDMI splitter, run one line digitally for watching live and the the other to your HDMI to composite converter for the 515's input.
Probably the best you can hope for.
