Cisco RNG150n - Is it sending a signal to the SD inputs on my DVD-Recorder?

Cisco RNG150n - Is it sending a signal to the SD inputs on my DVD-Recorder?

Hi,   I have a Sony Wega TV KLV-26HG2.  I recently received the Cisco RNG150n set top box, and I have it connected to the HD line 4 on my Sony Wega TV with an HDMI to DVI cable.  It works just fine.  However, that is where the good news ends.  The problem is with the SD signal.  I have the SD outputs on teh Cisco RNG150n connected to the SD inputs on my Panasonic DVD-Recorder.  From there, I have the SD outputs on the DVD-Recorder connected to the SD inputs on line 1 of the same Sony television.  I have no signal from the set top box traveling to the Panasonic DVD-Recorder or to the Sony TV SD connection.  I have a black screen.  I'm able to pull up the menus of both the DVD-Recorder and the Sony on the SD line 1, so I don't think the problem is in the connections.  Is there some reason why the SD signal isn't coming from the box to the DVD-Recorder and TV?  I'd really appreciate help on this.  I've been struggling with it for over 2 weeks, and I'm out of ideas.  Thanks Much.

Hello, Thanks for your reply.  I wish I had an answer for you.  When I got up this morning, the SD line was working, after many, many days of utterly refusing to give any sign of life.  What the difference was, I haven't got a clue!

Okay, I'm curious..... what happens when you disconnect the HDMI so that the RNG150 does not see the handshake?   Does that enable the SD connection then?
