    Can you use both component and HDMI outputs of Series 3 box simultaneously?

    Yes, although there could be some limitations. The TiVo doesn't even know whether you have anything connected to the component outputs, so they will just provide whatever is coming out the HDMI output. HDMI has handshaking with whatever it's connected to so it might shut off the video if that device is powered off, or that input isn't selected, or if it thinks it needs to to enforce DMCP.
