    Can I run 2 TV's of a 612? I know that both TV's would see the same channel I don't really care about that. I want to use 2 612's, one in a bedroom one in the living room, but want HD access from both 612's in both rooms. I found a place for cheap HDMI and Component cables of the right length I would feed the close TV by HDMI and the TV in the other room by Component. Also can you now hook 612's to your broadband internent connection? (I don't have a land line and don't want the fee) And are the 612 remotes IR or UHF?

    Thank and sorry for rambling on.

    Both the HDMI and Component outputs are hot.
    Remote is both, IR/UHF. It's the Pro 6.3. It comes set default to UHF. If your question is regarding getting a second remote, you can get either a 6.3 IR/UHF or a 5.3 IR.

    Thanks, that is what I thought but the CSR couldn't put my mind at ease. Just wanted some thoughts from the true CSR's here.

    You may want to do some research on the 621 and the HDMI output. I have read on another forum that when using the HDMI output it locks up a few times a day and has to be rebooted. I have had one about 2 weeks and am hooked up via the components. I have not tried the HDMI, but I may since I want a sound bar and the ones I am looking at have HDMI in. Dish has acknowledged the problem, allegedly, to those complaining and the engineers are supposed to be working on it. I don't know if its been fixed or not.

    If there may be a problem with the HDMI on a 612 then the next question would be are all the out puts on the 622/722 active at the same time? If the 622/722 are in single mode then they could be hooked up the same way as mentioned above and get PIP right?
