Sorry, only one output. The others are dead.
Not quite right. When output is set to 480i (and it must be set to 480i to get anything out of s-video) then both HMDI and s-video or both component and s-video will work at the same time. You cannot use HDMI and companent at the same time, however.

Oooops, my bad - I was over-simplifying again!

Thanks for putting me right, David.

David,
The HDMI may work on your TV, but, only the component works with my Samsung when I set my HDTIVO to 480i.

HDMI does indeed work at 480i on my TV, a Panny ED plasma. Weird that the Samsung doesn't accept it.

You have to unplug the HDMI to activate component.

thanks i guess i go with s-video or composite for the one tv without HDMI... unless there is some way to convert hdmi to component, but that probably will cost some...

I recently had my HDMI output fixed on my 10-250 and it works fine. I have discovered that my component-video output is now active at the same time the HDMI is active.

===========================

Did D* repair your HDMI or was it repaired by a 3rd party?

D* does not fix anything. You have to send the whole box back to them and get a replacement. I got he HDMI interface fixed at a 3rd party. I asked D* to replace the HDMI interface but as usual its "their way or the highway". The don't care about losing all your recoded programms.

I just bought a Samsung 32" LCD and have a H20 HD Receiver. When I pluged in a HDMI cable the only signal that the TV would display was one that was 720P or 1080I. I plugged in a component cable switched the TV to receive that signal and all programming was available. When I switched the TV back to HDMI, it also worked. So if you have a H20 receiver, you can use both at the same time.

A poster advised that his Sony LCD RPTV allowed him to see component when he switched the TV's inputs--no need to physically disconnect HDMI.

My son's Sony 19" LCD TV shuts off HDMI when you turn off the TV, allowing the HD Tivo's component output to remain active.

i want to send component from my 10-250 to an ed plasma and at the same time have hdmi hooked up to a front projector. the plasma and the projector won't be in use at the same time. if the projector is turned off (no hdmi handshake will be present), will the 10-250 output a signal via component? or does the hdmi cable have to be physically unplugged from the 10-250?
thanks for the help,
eric

It's hard to tell. Many TVs still tell the HD Tivo that HDMI is hooked up, even when turned off. Try it. If it doesn't work there are some inexpensive manual switchers that will work.

can you point me to an inexpensive manual hdmi switch?
also, i have digital audio out via toslink. is that affected by how the hdmi is hooked up?
if a hdmi plug is in the port, will the digital audio out still work?
thanks,
eric
