How to connect a ReplayTV DVR?

#1
I live in a rural farm area, 16 miles Southwest of Hilo on The Big Island of Hawaii at about 2200 ft. elevation. Cable service stops about a mile from my home, and DishNetwork Satellite doesn't work MUCH too often, so we decided to settle for local broadcast stations.

Hawaii already switched over to all digital broadcast on 1/15/09! I have a ReplayTV DVR. Instructions that came with my Magnavox TB100MG9 TDV Digital to Analog Converter show how to connect everything other than a DVR! If anybody knows what to do, or where I can find out, I'd sure appreciate it!

Thanks!

When you get a chance,

You want to connect the DVR so that you're able to record over-the-air local broadcast stations from your converter box?

Is this the model you own: Digital Networks ReplayTV RTV5504 (40-hour DVR) Digital Video Recorders (DVRs) reviews - CNET Reviews

Hi Jay,

Yes, I want to be able to use my ReplayTV DVR the same way that I've been using it for years... to get the local digital broadcast (over the air) station programming guide downloaded so that I can know what programs are coming so that I can set programs to record based on the Programming Guide

Ooops! I forgot to say that my ReplayTV is an older model 3020.
