What im trying to do is use my toshiba dvd recorder to record directv from my samsung tv using only a hdmi cable. The guy at the store says i can and the manual that came with the recorder says i can but i can't seem to get it to work because the source select gives me a blue screen. 1. sat box is connected to hdmi2 and dvd recorder is on hdmi1 on the tv. Two diff sources!! plz help, is it possible?

HDMI on DVD recorders is an output, not an input. There is no DVD recorder made that will record from HDMI. One of the main reasons for using HDMI on electronics is the copy protection which can't be defeated.
