I have:
-Samsung HDtv
-Time Warner Scientific Atlanta Explorer 8300HD Cable Box/DVR
-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 to see the connections on the back of the Toshiba
