I'm trying to connect a dish 625 dvr to a phillips dvd 3400 recorder to a hitachi 55hdx99 plasma tv. i'm trying to record programs off the dvr or from the tv. the tv has 3 hdmi inputs, which i'm only using 1 at this moment for the dvd recorder, it has multiple other inputs, s-video and rca jacks. i've taken the s-video output from the dvr, connected it to the input of the dvd recorder and then from the output side to the tv. i've tried various combinations, s-video, coax and rca jacks but nothing i do works. i can only get the tv to display when i go directly from the dvr to the tv. i've played with the tv input setups and i keep coming up empty. anyone have any suggestions or a diagram that would help? thanks.
