I just discovered "Swap" on my 622, which was a pleasant suprise (I'm in single mode). Perhaps this is a stupid question, but I note that the resolution for a 2nd tv is supposed to be in standard def, so, is the second tv picture when swapping from tv1 to tv2 in standard resolution, compared to the first picture/tuner?

If I am recording two programs, one in HD and one not, should I take care to record the HD one from tuner/picture 1, and the SD one from tuner 2 or doesn't it matter?

All three tuners record whatever resolution the incoming signal is. It's TV2 output that is SD only not tuners. If you are in single mode with HDMI or component connection you will get the best resolution regardless of which tuner you use.

Dish 1000.2 @ 110, 119, 129; dish 500 @ 61.5
Antennas - CM4228; RS U75-R; coathanger; Funke PSP.1922 (stillin the box); paperclip

If you're running in single mode, all tuners are equivalent (except for the obvious difference that the third tuner is OTA-only). All tuners can view and record HD, and you will always be capable of receiving a high definition signal from the unit regardless of what tuner you are viewing.
