One more question. Can you confirm you were trying to route the audio & video together? The normal way to do this is to connect the DVR's HDMI output to the AVR's CBL/SAT HDMI input, and then from the AVR's HDMI output to the TV's input, so the AVR is performing the source switching and handling the audio, but passing through the video. If you connected it this way and the result was no audio and no video, then I think you either have a setting wrong in the AVR or a HDCP issue.
I'm not familiar with the Marantz 6008, but if it's like my 8801 it will have a setup menu item called "input assign" where you assign inputs to sources. On mine, there are multiple CBL/SAT audio inputs, one is HDMI, another is coax S/PDIF, another is analog. The input assign menu is where you configure it to use the HDMI CBL/SAT input for the CBL/SAT source.
