Use an RCA to mini-din Y cable.  You can get one for a couple of bucks
at a Radio Shack.

Ok.  I was thinking Sat -> Yamaha would allow me (or the wife, really) 
to watch live TV without going through Myth.  I think this can be 
accomplished by using the assignable inputs/output on the Yamaha 
receiver, essentially the same as described here: 

Would it be better to just watch live TV via Myth, using Sat -> Myth -> 
Yamaha -> TV?  Is live TV via Myth working pretty well?

I didn't word that very well - I'm just trying to figure out what sort 
of cable I need to input audio to the PVR-250.  Whether I do Sat -> Myth

or Yamaha -> Myth, the audio will be coming from a pair of RCA jacks.
