Can you hook up a HDTV receiver on to the coax that goes to tv2. I would like to have HD in my bedroom which is adjacent to my den and connected to the 722 as tv2. There is no way to get a separate coax into the bedroom. Thanks.

You can but it will not be HD output. The TV2 output is SD only. All the outputs on the receiver are hot at the same time. So, if you don't care about watching different programs in the bedroom and in the den at the same time, you could run a component or HDMI cable to the bedroom TV. If you can't run any new cables you are stuck with SD or getting another HD receiver for the bedroom (which might require a new cable run as well, if you can't use th existing cable for the sat feed to the additional receiver).
