my tv has coaxial, s-video and composite . i also have a digital audio receiver. i recently purchased a dvr digital box from my cable company. The box has coaxel, hdmi, composite audio and video , component and ieee. i purchased composite  video and audio cables because that is the best way i can think to hook it up. is there any way i can get better sound or video like some kind of converter box to hook up s-video or digital sound cables ? my tv has the s-video and my digital audio receiver has the digital  in out but my cable box does not have any of that

You can ask the cable company if they have any boxes with an s-video output. S-video is a little better than composite. Other than that, there's not much you can do other than buy a new tv. You might can find a deal on Craig's List, for a tv. I see them there all the time.

Comcast is a cable service provider.  They don't manufacture DVRs.  Depending on where you are in the country, your DVR may have been made by Scientific Atlanta, Motorola, Moxie or some other company.  Each of those manufacturers makes several different DVR models.  Without knowing exactly which DVR you have, we can't tell what your connection options are.  Do you currently have digital cable service or analog?
