    It would be the "analog sunset" that component video users should fear.

    Unfortunately, if any of the sets are the old 4:3 kind, they will show a squashed picture when the format is set properly for the 16:9 sets, and vice versa. You may have to toggle the format to get a particular set configured properly, which may unconfigure other sets. If only one is being watched at a time it is not really a problem (only an annoyance).

    You can have two or more TVs connected to any DVR (HD or SD) by use of an HDMI splitter (not HDMI switch). Many are available for reasonable prices but you will need to run an HDMI cable from the splitter to each TV - that's what's going on with multiple TVs you see in the stores. I control one of my HR20s with TWO different remotes - one for each TV in different rooms by using the rf configuration. It works perfectly and I get HD during live and recorded programs.
