Actually, you could theoretically supply 4 TVs(HDMI/component/s-video/yellow cable). You'd need an RCA splitter for the audio cables.

should, one via HDMI and another thru component/rca cables...
Nope, that won't work, unless you keep the HR10-250 set to output 480i video. The HR10's composite/SVideo outputs are blank unless its outputting 480i video. And you cannot use both the HDMI and Component video outputs simultaneously because the HDMI output takes priority and blanks the component video output.
Generally it's not a good idea to feed two different TVs from one HR10-250, unless you do not plan to use an HDTV and are happy with just 480i video. The HR20 HD DVR is actually a better alternative because its video outputs are all active simultaneously, although video formats can get a bit goofy if one TV is HDTV and the other TV is 480i Standard Definition.

i actually was only trying to send a 480i signal to two tvs, i have the just replaced the hr10-250 with the hr20 in the living room but was trying to replace a rca dvr40 in my office with the hr10-250. that dvr40 is able to supply the tv in my office and also my wifes office and the bedroom with signal but i guess i cant with the hr1--250
If you're only using 480i standard definition video, then the HR10-250 should work fine. It has two composite video/audio outputs. Of course, it does not have a coax RF output, so you might need an RF Video Modulator if you're feeding the remote TV over coax.

You really need RF remotes or repeaters to make this a usuable system.
This is fairly easy to do provided that you have a central place where all your lines come in or go out. Buy a modulator, run a reverse feed line, get an RF remote or repeater and you pretty much have it.
There are other elaborate media servers, but this is the cheapest way.
