    How do I hook up my toshiba dvd/vcr with samsung plasma tv and comcast hd box? Here is the backpanel of the comcast hd box except it is not a dvr http://broadband.motorola.com/consum...t6208_back.jpg. I have a toshiba Toshiba D-KVR20ku dvd/vcr recorder and a samsung plasma pn42a450p1d. I have hd picture, can view dvds and vhs tapes. I can record picture but get no sound.

  2. I would run DVI/HDMI directly from the cable box to the TV along with digital audio. Then run s-video or composite (yellow RCA) and stereo audio (red and white RCA) from the cable box to the VCR/DVD combo for recording to VHS. Run s-video or composite from the VCR/DVD to the TV for VHS playback. Finaly HDMI or component from VCR/DVD to TV for DVD playback.

    Use component for your tv,1080i is the best you can get anyway.
    BTW:that's probably an old photo because all of the Motorola HD boxes Comcast uses now have HDMI.

  5. The picture shows DVI and what appears to be an optical audio out (between the s-video and firewire connectors). You can use a DVI->HDMI cable and an optical audio cable to go from the box to the TV (if the TV has optical audio in). That should look slightly better than component, your next choice.

    I went from bottom red and white out of hd cable box to vcr/dvd in. From vcr/dvd out to the componet 1 of the tv. I the went from dvd red and white out to the composite on the tv. I can record with sound on the DVD side. I may need to switch the red and whites to get the vcr to record with sound.

    That box is fine for DVI-D to HDMI for Samsung HDTV (HDCP required and supported).
