I have a dual tuner dish DVR reciever with comcast being used for local stations. Out of TV1 ouput I can only get Dish stations and comcast stations via the coxial output. But when I hook up S-Video of RCA outputs to my TV or {my INfocus projector which does not have coxial input} I get only Dish stations..No local comcast stations What do I do?

???Comcast is not your locals. Are you trying to combine Satellite and Cable or what. Probably need to use different tv inputs. Only a few of the DIsh receivers can receive cable input and output them.
 
I have basic cable for local stations which is hooked in to the cable/off air coxial input of the reciever. I am able to switch back and forth between local stations[comcast] and dish stations with the dish remote TV/Video button if i use the coxial output in TV1, but no local stations if I use S-video or RCA ouputs also for tv1.

You have not identified your receiver, etc. Some of the receivers can pass thru the antenna/cable connection they receive but do not process them and so will not output them to the TV1 s-video or RCA jacks.
 
neither one of those have a built in OTA tuner so it is a pass through through coax.

Also you can't record the "locals" on the 625 either since again its a pass through
