You need to use HDMI or component (Green, Blue and Red) for video and red and white for audio.from the back of the DVD player to an available input on the back of the TV.

I have a DVD recorder/player on my TV plus STB.
Couple of questions:
1) How many input does your TV have? Connect STB to one (preferably HDMI) and DVD player to another (ideally Component which is a total of 5 connections. You can do composite which is 2 audit and 1 video).
2) What inputs does your DVD player have? You can take one of the unused outputs from your STB and connect to DVD player. By using HDMI, the audio outputs are available to connect to DVD. If you use component to TV, then you have to get a splitter for the audio.

You need to use a HDMI cable from cable box to TV instead and hook up your RCA cables to the back of the STB to your DVD player then from the DVD player to TV if that was how you were watching it.

Can both of you report what model STB you have?
All HD STBs have HDMI outputs.
And what ports do you have on your TVs?
Unless you have SD STB or digital adapter, you should be able to conenct TV and DVD player to TV assuming it has the correct ports.

Don't quite understand what you are trying to do?
What are you trying to record on what unit.
DVR can only record from FIOS channels.
If your DVD unit can also record, just connect proper output of DVR to input of DVD unit.
DVR outputs are all active.
And then use HDMI from each DVD and DVR to TV.
Select appropriate input on tv for what you want to watch.
