    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.

    Sounds like they the HDTivo has the same chip limitation that the 921 has...wonder is as many directv users are going to be upset by this as 921 users were. :)
