-Samsung Bluray/Sound Sytem
-Toshiba DVD/VCR DVR620
Previously, the sound was going from the Cable Box to the Surround Sound with an optical audio output, but I undid that because when I record DVDs there is no sound.
No I have the whole surround sound disconnected.
According to my manual, I run A/V cords from the Cable Box to the DVD Burner, then out to the TV.
I have tried many different sets of A/V cable, and nothing seems to work. I do not know what to do.
I undid the HDMI that currently runs the Cable Box to the TV for normal viewing and tried to just use A/V cables to the TV to see how it would go, and I got no sound that way either.
There seems to be some key issue that I am missing (that is probably obvious to the more tech savvy out there.)
Please help! I am trying to record shows for my husband who is in Afghanistan so he can have a piece of home with him!

How do you have everything hooked up now?
I can't tell.
Anyway, to get a recorded program that is on the cable box hard drive to the Toshiba, you need to connect composite video+audio (yellow+red+white) between the cable box and the Toshiba.
go to http://us.toshiba.com/video-electronics/dvd-recorders/dvr620/ to see the connections on the back of the Toshiba
