HDMI and S-Video outputs active simultaneously on 722?
Posted 01 July 2008 - 04:02 PM
I ask because I need to connect my 722 to my DVD recorder when it gets here, and ideally I'd like to use the box in dual tuner PIP mode and connect digital outputs of TV 1 to my HDTV and the analog outs to my DVD recorder.
I know I could use TV 2, but (mini-rant here) it's only RCA video, not S-Video like even my 311 SD receiver provides.
Or would I have to playback recorded content after first switching the 722 to 480i to activate the S-Video output, then switch it back after I was done saving off SD content?
Thanks in advance; things are getting complex enough that I'm pondering canceling my install if I can't figure out a good way of doing this.

All outputs are always active. I have my DVD recorder hooked to my S-video and it shows the same programming as the HDMI output.
So does it automatically downres an HD signal to letterboxed 480i on the S-Video out?
Does the format follow the HD picture so, for example, a zoomed 4:3 letterbox sent over an HD channel appears as letterboxed 4:3 on the S-Video output?
