I would like to distribute the HDMI signal from a 722 to other tv's nearby. Is there a distribution amp that allows this? How does it work?

There are products to do this, but they are fairly expensive, because they are more than just splitters/amplifiers. They also have to support HDCP encryption and perform a hardware "handshake" between each connection.

Google "hdmi splitter amplifier" for a number of options.

I have the monoprice
4 X 2 HDMI powered
switch//splitter. Distributes four HDMI devices to 2 TVs. Works very well. Can show the same input on two TVs or two different inputs on 2 TVs. You are able to switch between input flawlessly using the remote. Can change all four inputs on either TV using the remote.

I dont have the brand that my friend used, but he attempted to use an HDMI spiltter he got from Fry's for a little over $100, and it was totally unstable (sometimes it would work, sometimes not). I know he exchanged it thinking it was defective, but the 2nd one did the same thing. He ultimately used y-barrel rca jacks and two RGB component w/audio cables - one for each additional TV.

Several companies have started advertising their wireless HDMI transmitter/receiver systems that will be available late this year.

The ones I've looked at will all work with any receiver that has an HDMI output. The various models support from 2 to 4 extra TVs but the early models will be expensive, up to a $1000.

The only advantage I see is to be able to watch the same HD program from several locations since the 622/722 only have one HD output.

Might be simplier to get one or two more HD receivers from DISH, for now anyway.
