Can the 622 be firmware updated to support a 2ed HDTV through a RF channel or is it a hardware limit? It seems that many if not most who use for a 2 TV would also have a HDTV. I know my mom went out and bought one for her bedroom not understanding that the 2 TV output is only SD.
No. They chipsets used only include on HDTV decoding path.

You could build a DVR with an ATSC-modulated output, but the programming providers would scream bloody murder. Why? Because you could then tune that ATSC signal with another recording device (read: HTPC) and, presumably, distribute those files over the internet.

Do you remember the 5000 HDTV adapter? Thats exactly what it did. And I had mine hooked to DVHS recorder. Of course your right, the program providers wanted it to go away.
