Will this unit work with our DP52449 Sanyo HD TV and Sharp LC-46SB54U?

Your TV is a HD unit so it likely has all the plugs necessary to connect this unit including an HDMI connection. I don't know what that other unit is but if it's a DVR, or for all that matters, any other unit such as a blue ray, you can connect the DVR, the DVD recorder and the TV in series, in that order. Your TV likely has several inputs for each machine to be pluged in separately so it can be used without turning all theother units on. Go to your TV input menu and/or look on the back or side iof your tv to see them.
What this machine DOES NOT have is a coaxial cable connection. Use the 3 RCA plugs to connect the cable/satilite box to this unit. Also connect your "box" directly to the tv with a coaxial cable or HDMI cable if your box has a HDMI output so you can see "box" transmissions without having this or anyother machine turned on.
Just a FYI, in my experience, HDMI cables will not support closed caption transmisions from any unit, if that's a concern, but they are much clearer.
Have fun!

Question

Ideal Quality Setting for VHS to DVD?

Would LP mode be a decent recording mode for analog camcorder/VHS to DVD? And does the USB allow you to transfer the raw video file(s) so they can be imported into PC video apps without having to first burn to DVD?

In general, use the fastest speed that you can use and still get the amount of time on it to complete your recording. If the VCR tape is recorded at a slow speed recording to A DVD is not going to get good results not matter what speed you use on the DVD.
NO IDEA ON THE PC QUESTION.

LP mode will work fine for the transfer of your VHS videos.

The USB port is only used for playing back either MP3 audio or JPEG photo files.It will not play back video files.

The inputs are standard RCA phono plug Audio/Video jacks, and S-Video input for better picture. The outputs are the same plus HMDI for HDTVs, and RGB outputs for projection TVs. While it may record in Video or S-Video, the output does upgrade the signal to 1080p HDMI for HDTVs, but I haven't used the HDMI output yet. It doesn't have an internal TV tuner, which you shouldn't need with a cable/satellite box.

You can use the HDMI cable to connect the player to your TV so you can watch your DVDs.

To record TV, you will have to have an external source such as a cable box or satellite receiver. There is no tuner built into the player.

The Toshiba D-R570 recorder has the built-in digital tuners. While it was discontinued recently, you can still Google it to find it on-line. Walmart isn't selling this model.

The DR570 has built in tuners, giving you the option of connecting it to an antenna or cable TV, while the DR430 does not.

All other features are the same.

It depends.

Whether or not a program can be recorded to DVD depends on the owner of the content. The owner can prevent duplication by putting copy-protection encoding in the video feed. So, it will vary by the program.

The DR430 has Composite Video and S-Video inputs, so if your Fios box has one of those outputs, you can record programs.

Be aware that content owners have the option of restricting copying of their programs, so you may not be able to record some programs.
