I presently have one 722K receiver downstairs. TV 1 is connected to 2 HD TV's.

TV 2 feeds 3 standard def TV's.

What type of Hopper Joey setup would I need? How much more per month would it cost? Is it worth it?

Assuming you connect your existing tv's in a similar fashion, 2 outputs to 5 tv's, including any upfront upgrade costs, your bill will increase by $11 a month. 1 Hopper feeding 2 HD tv's. 1 Joey mirrored to 3 SD tv's via a modulator using the composite output of the Joey. If you feel the additional features a H/J setup are worth $11 mo., then I say go for it.
