    Has anyone seen the following and is there a reasonable workaround:

    -HR22/100 connected to AV Recvr (AVR) with HDMI, 1080p is selected and works - everything is happy and works as expected

    I want to sometimes want to watch DirecTV without AVR - so, in addition to the HDMI to AVR, I connected component outputs directly to TV - once I do this, HDMI signal to AVR stops working and I only get signal from component to TV with no greater than 1080i signal - 1080p is not selectable

    Is it possible to have both outputs (HDMI and component) simultaneously? Or, is there another alternative - HDMI splitter, perhaps?

    Thanks for any input or guidance that you can provide. :)

    First of all, while you can select 1080p (1080/24p, to be exact), this only allows for the very limited amount of 1080/24p content to be shown in that format. The vast majority of your HD programming will be delivered to you in the same format the network delivered it to DirecTV: 1080i or 720p. The receiver does not and can not convert programming to 1080p.

    Second, 1080p is only available using HDMI, so as soon as you plug in a component cable, 1080p is disabled, correctly and by design.

    Thanks for the reply.

    1080p is nice to have (not my greatest concern) - but, I get NOTHING over HDMI when component is plugged in.

    Just to be clear, I get NO HDMI SIGNAL at all when the component output is plugged in also - is this by design? Is it possible to have simultaneous output from both HDMI and component on the HR22/100?

    Thanks again.

    Yes, it's possible, but you need to select a resolution that both TVs/connections will support, and you can't be watching PPVs or other protected content with high levels of HDCP restrictions.

    All outputs are active, but HDMI handshaking can be tricky. It is likely that you would not see the problem should the HDMI be plugged directly into the TV (which I realize is not something you want)
