It is possible but you'll need some device, like an old vcr, to convert the DVR output. You would connect the DVR composite or s-video output to the vcr's composite/s-video input, then connect the vcr's coax output to the tv.

Thanks for the replies.  Upon further inspection I found that the TV also has a composite video input (R,Y, W) which works great from the receiver.
