    With the 722, I would like to run both an HDTV and an SD TV.

    The SD TV does not have RCA inputs, only a CAT/RF input. Will it be possible to use it in that way?

    722 is just like 622. It has 3 HD tuners, 2 sat 1 OTA, You can watch 2 prerecorded programs (one in HD via TV1, the other down rezed to SD on TV2) and record 3 other HD programs at the same time (provided you have OTA).

    Thanks. I was trying to record two OTA channels at the same time but it is nice to know I can record the other HD at the same time. And i did not know the tuners where dual SD/HD.

    Can anyone tell me for sure what's coming out of the TV2 Coax? (in Dual mode). I have a 20" 4:3 TV. On an HD show, "normal" is full screen but has sides cut-off, Letterbox shows the full image with bars top and bottom, both look correct (no skinny or fat people). I tried a 16:9 LCD (@TV2) one day and neither filled the screen properly, so I took it back. Does anyone have a 16:9 TV at TV2 location, who is happy with the image? Works fine in Single mode, plus you have many more zoom options, but in Dual you only have 2 options.

    Today, 8/14, is the one-year anniversary of this VIP722 thread.

    I've had my 722 for a couple of months now and have found it
    to be an elegant machine that is inherently rock-solid stable.
    When I move into my new house next month, I will have three.
