"If I understand your setup, what do you need to connect to the dvr besides the receiver? It has an internal storage device to hold the recorded programs, right? Just hook it up via hdmi to the receiver and be done"
Thanks for the info, Winston.
I am only connecting the receiver to the DVR. I was just confused because the manual doesn't specifically provide info on DVRs, much less a DVR with HDMI. Therefore, I wasn't sure if the DVR had to be hooked up like the manual's example of hooking up a DVD Recorder (even though a DVR and DVD record differently) or via their satellite/cable receiver example. Everything is up and running/recording as is using composite and analog. However, I want to run HDMI between receiver and DVR. The info you and Mitsuhelp have provided is very helpful and validated my thoughts. Thanks!!
