Default sony str dh 520 connecting to a magnavox zv427mg9 a dvr-vcr

Ok this is the most confusing thing I've ever tryed to get done.
tv connected to 520 with hdmi
dish box connected to sat/cabl input with hdmi- works good
dvr-vcr connected to video input with hdmi - plays recorded dvds good
problem is I can not get a signal in to record.

Instructions for 520 says i must connect an av cable to out of 520 to input of dvr which I did still no input to record

I must not be getting an out put signal to the dvr . Setting some where? Reciever or dvr ? or both

Thanks for reading Tim HDMI and digital challenged

You may want to try a different video input, like other than HDMI that may not be sending a signal back.

yes, HDMI is fickle. Often the HDCP (embedded protection) prevents a useable signal to be output. Go analog.
