    You can output in HDMI, component or S-video, but, unless you output at 480I (SD), only one of these at a time, not all of them.

    your options are any of your inputs on your tv except coaxial. you will only get "true" hd thru hdmi or component

    Assuming you mean that your 2nd set is in another room, and you want to use the HR10-250 for both a main HD set and a remote TV (via coax), you have two options. First is to keep the existing SD unit, which for the $5/month mirroring fee will give you extra recording potential, and the ability to watch different shows on both set.

    Otherwise, your best bet to get a coax output is a nice $35 modulator from RadioShack that also supports MTS Stereo (assuming you've got a relatively nice set in the other room, otherwise the cheaper $20 ch3/4 modulator will do fine), and then whatever remote control solution suits you. Disable 480p whichever HD output you don't use (720p/1080i), and then a quick two-arrows-up on the HR10 remote will switch the output resolution between HD and 480i SD so you can see the show in the other room...

    I've posted this info before - search for more info if this isn't clear...
