Burning from DVR Box to DVD Recorder

i have a Motorola QIP 6416-2 model box.  i noticed it doesn't even have an RF out coaxial, only an RF in.  How do i connect my dvd recorder to it so it allows me to burn my recorded programs?  is there another HD DVR motorola box that verizon provides that has both the RF in and an RF out connection?  i find this very frustrating. 

thanks in advance for any help

The newer QIP-7216 does have an RF output.  That being said, I would recommend using S-Video or composite video (yellow RCA jack) outputs with the stereo audio outputs (red and white RCA jacks) from the back of the STB.  The RF output does not carry stereo audio and the video quality will be better with these connections with S-Video being the best.  This can be done with your existing box.

ok.  i tried making the following connection and i'm getting noise on my tv.

from STB:  composite video out/audio outs to dvd recorder composite in and audio in

from dvd recorder to tv:  composite video out/audio out to tv composite in and audio in

is there an option on the STB that i need to change for it to output to the dvd recorder?

All of the jacks on the Verizon STB should be set to output a signal.

Sounds like you may need to switch some type of Input Settiing on the DVD Recorder to receive the signal from the STB and then send it thru to the TV.

There is no option setting on the STB.  All outputs on the box are active simultaneously.  Is it possible that unless you are recording the DVD recorder doesn't output anything?

Is the DVD recorder set for "Line Input" (or something similar) and in record mode (not playback)?  I am assuming that the TV is set to the correct input for the composite signal (no offense intended, but sometimes the most obvious answer is the right one Smiley Wink ).
