Best thing to use is a powered HDMI splitter, and then 2 HDMI cables if the TV's are close enough...
There are other ways as well...
HDMI to 1, component to other, although this creates a problem with some protected content such as that on HBO and PPV movies, etc...

I bought both from Monoprice - I don't have the exact item numbers but I bought:
2x1 powered HDMI splitter
HDMI over ethernet wall plate kit (about $30 if I remember correctly)
2 - 40-45' etherent cables in different colors (the HDMI over ethernet requires 2 etherenet cables - i used different colors to easily keep them separate)
This setup works without any problems.
You are limited to watching the same channel on both TV's
