Setup DVD Recorder and Dish DVR

I have just purchased a DVD recorder. I currently have a TV and a Dish DVR. I want to be able to record what is on my TV. I can watch Videos on my TV because I have setup my DVD recorder output to my TV which is playing through my Video 1. I am struggling to figure out how I setup my input to the DVD recorder. Should I be coming in from the Dish DVR or the TV?

Welcome to the forum. It is generally better to have any recorder in line between the source and the TV. Most satellite boxes have multiple outputs and should allow you to connect both without one in line with the other.
