skuzzb: so i connect decoder to recorder with 3 cables and then from recorder to tv?is that correct? thanks
That will only give you SD picture on the TV. I'd connect the T1020 to the TV via HDMI for HD picture. Connect the T1020 to the recorder via composite A/V. Connect the recorder to the TV via HDMI for upscaled SD (assuming your recorder will upscale and your TV has multiple HDMI inputs).
