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.
