Is the connection from the output of the cable TV DVR to the input of the TV still standard coax?

You're right, I just checked. The DVR has RCA outputs for video and audio. I believe that's what you mean by component. And so the HDMI is input for things like newer DVD players, games and other equipment. Okay, I'm good to go.
I think Target has a 32" Sony on sale for $349. Maybe I'll check it out if I can get my wife to take a look at it.

Oh, I see. I don't have BGR on mine, just composite. Now those terms, I do know. Used to fix TVs for walking around money back in college in the '70s. Television technology left me way behind. No tubes anymore. And we used to say RGB.

By getting HD, do you mean by upgrading my cable service to the HD tier? In other words, just upgrading their DVR to an HD box won't make my signal HD, is that right?
1. I searched and found that same HDTV on Amazon here. You have 2 HDMI, 1 component, 1 composite, 1 coaxial and 1 DE-15 VGA input.
2. Yes, "Out 1" is composite. You can also use the black digital coaxial audio instead of the red and yellow RCA for your "Out 1".
3. The best you can do is get standard definition from your DVR (plug the yellow from the DVR to your HDTV) and from the HTS (which I assume is a DVD player too) you can connect component (RGB) to your HDTV.
You seriously might want to look at high definition though. I promise you that it is worth it.

I know you think you understand what you thought I said,
but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant!
