    Can I use the H21 receiver to run two TV's? Component to one and HDMI to the other?

    Both are true statements. If your hdmi television is off and you are watching on the component fed tv, some programming may not display due to the receiver not seeing the hdmi handshake. That tends to be a problem with some of the premium channels, such as HBO.

    Keep in mind both televisions must watch the same thing, you can't watch different shows at the same time.
