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.

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?

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!
