Hello and sorry to hear you're having trouble,

You'll need a hdmi cable from the dvr to the hdmi2 (dtv/cbl) port on the back of the yamaha

then another hdmi port from the OUT port to the tv (such as hdmi1, on the tv). Set the tv to hdmi1, and set the yamaha to the dtv/cbl mode.

Let me know if that works for you, please.

Ok Eldon I just see what you’re talking about & that looks way easier but unfortunately I only have one hdmi cord which is going from dvr to tv but have a zillion cords that are red/blue/green and red/yellow/white so can u possibly tell me how to hook up using those?

Okay what you could do is connect the dvr directly to the tv with the hdmi cord,

and then use red/white from the dvr to the yamaha (to the dtv/cbl) ports.

Hold on I also having a speaker issue...so I don’t need ANY red/blue/green cords ANYWHERE?

No those are not necessary.

HDMI really would be the best option long term, so it would be worth going to the store or going online and ordering a new hdmi cable, they are only about $5: http://amzn.to/2FqLkre

Just curious so the red/blue/green cord does the EXACT same thing as the HDMI cord?
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
what exactly does the red/yellow/white cord used for?

The red blue green are a lower quality analog connection, so is the red/white/yellow, hdmi is all digital

Awesome Eldon you are the bomb everything is working now ...!!! I was trying to use WAY TOO MANY CORDS... so just to backtrack I need to go get another HDMI cord to go from DVR to receiver? And lastly would it be beneficial to use a better quality HDMI cord than just this generic one I have to connect and why if so?

Great! Glad that did the trick for you!

There is no difference in the hdmi cords, they are all digital and there is no quality difference between the cheap and expensive ones, just a brand name, so sticking with the generic is just fine.

Oh so sorry one more question just curious can u ever use a red/white/yellow cord to connect a component (like a CD player) red to white both ways and just leave out the yellow just hanging in the air beside connections or not?
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
you did say I need to get another hdmi cord to go from dvr to receiver ...right?

Yes you can use just the red/white part that is just fine,

and you can add another hdmi cable, but it isn't necessary if things are already working sufficiently for you
