I've had a few people e-mail me asking about how the HD DirecTivo outputs work. Here is the scoop: The HD-Tivo does NOT output from the component and HDMI/DVI at the same time. You need to select which one you are using. If the HD Tivo is in 480p, 720p or 1080i, the S-Video and composite connectors are shut off. The only time those connectors are working is in 480i mode. Hope this clears up any confusion.
