I did use an S-Video and turned on the AV receiver. I must not have pushed the S-Video cable in far enough or it's a bad one 'cause it's black & white right now. I can tell one thing though even in B&W: The PQ is definitely improved !

The problem I'm seeing doesn't happen with the 622 set to output 720p. So if you're willing to switch modes for SD viewing vs. HD viewing, then you're all set: tell the 622 to output 1080i for HD content, and change it to output 720p when you want to watch SD content. This "mode change" means walking through a couple of menus, but it is similar to what you already seem to be willing to put up with and it saves you the extra wiring.
Or: try watching both HD and SD at 720p and see what you think - maybe you would be happy without switching modes at all! Some HD is 720 anyway; some is 1080i but depending on the program and your TV you might not notice much difference.
Just to be sure we're talking about the same thing, you might temporarily go to single mode and use SWAP. Who knows? Maybe you can jiggle the 622 just right so the "good" decoder is the one that feeds your TV1 when you switch back to dual mode!

I can switch to my S-Video input with 2 pushes on my remote. How many does it take to switch output resolution on the 622, 5-6 or more ??
One. Universal remotes with macros are wonderful things.
