I am using HDMI 1 from Dish Network to TV and HDMI 2 from TV to Toshiba D-R400 DVD/DVR. All things work perfectly except I cannot record from the TV. I have formatted the DVD-RW (4X) on the Toshiba, the record light comes on, the counter starts, when finished with my test, I allow one minute of recording time, the 'writing to disc' happens, I have the setting for auto finish activated, but I get nothe but a black sreen, no audio, no video. I try another setiing L1, L2 etc, etc and the disk starts recording againwith the next title or chapter, so I think something is happening. I've also tried an RCA cable from video out in the Toshiba to video in on the TV, nothing. I thought HDMI carried every thing and other cables aren't needed. Is my problem with my hook=ups or with my settings, or both perhaps? Can anyone please help?

You need to conncet the DN receiver to one of the inputs on the recorder. HDMI is for playback, not recording.
