magnavox mdr865h/f7/cox cable set up

Was I given a white elephant? New mdr865h/f7 will not load and play channels when attached to a cox cable system mini-box or standard cable box for setup. Neither I nor cox cable can find a way to make it function, whether it is set up in HDMI, composite (RCA RWY) ,component, or S-video, on the units DTV,, L1 or L2 inputs: makes no difference, no output. The DVD player will play a purchased recording but does not appear to record, and the HDD can be programmed but does not seem to receive a signal to record. Has anyone encountered this, or is the unit itself the problem? I do not think it is the unit--even cox cable did not suggest this as a cause of the problem--but there is a problem nonetheless. Have read the posts in related threads and tried a few tips, but to no avail. Has anyone else had a like or same experience?
