    I have my TV hooked up via HDMI, does anyone know if the ViP612's componet jacks are live when you are already using HDMI?

    Could I hook the Slingbox up to the component jacks, and still have my TV hooked up to the HDMI Jack? :confused:

    Thanks for the help, I am new to Dish and feel like a n00b!

    As far as I know it, all outputs are hot at the same time.

    WOW. First, thanks for the fast reply!

    Second.. If that is the case, that would be ideal!

    Hmm.. Anyone out there tried and had any luck?

    Lots of folks do it. All outputs are hot and always have been in the ViP receivers.

    Definitely handy.. Thanks Chuck for the confirmation. I was pretty sure that was the case but had not tried it myself.

    I have my 612 hdmi output connected to the main TV, the component ouput connected to the kitchen TV (35' cable), and the RF output connected to the TV in my workshop. Everything works great.
