Magnavox DVR MDR513H/F7 will not work with Cox mini digital box
AllenP said:OK I am stuck again. The chart from the 513H manual shows the DVR Audio In connections going to Audio/Video Out connections on a digital box. I do not have those connections on the mini box. TV does not have HDMI connection. Could you please explain in simple language how to do the yellow-white-red connections? I cannot find anything on Cox site that shows how to and the chart I was sent in a earlier posting was simple in/out cable connections with no mention of yellow-white-red. The chart was for connecting a VCR/DVD recorder and I did not realize it was different for a DVR. Is there a chart that shows proper connections for DVR? Again, thank you so much for the help.

The TV works fine with the DVR connected or without it connected, I just do not get playback or have any DVR functions working from remote. Will report back once I try the alternate connection. Thanks all for helping me!
If you are saying the minibox plays thru the TV regardless if the DVR is connected or not, that's consistent with the manual. The DVR will pass through the minibox signal to the coax output but not play anything from the hard drive or DVD drive. Thing is, the 557 manual says the same thing. If you were using the antenna output to play recorded items in the past, all I can say is maybe the manual is wrong. Worth a try using composite (Y/R/W) output.
