Hi everyone, I've got a few simple questions that I'm hoping you fine folks could answer for me.

#1 On a 9200 in Single TV mode is it possible to output to two separate TV's, one on component, one on HDMI. Both in HD? Both TV's will obviously get the same picture.

#2 Is that same question possible on the 9241, this receiver in question is on Telus, although I doubt that matters.

#3 Does a Bell receiver exist that can output an HD signal to two TV's in Dual TV mode?

#4 Is there any possible place where you can find a spec sheet for these receivers? It is ridiculously hard to find any technical info on these!

Thanks in advance everyone!

Others will likely confirm, but here are my answers.

1. Yes.
2. Yes
3. No, the second output is always SD. You could get two STBs and two eHDDs, one for each TV.
4. The PVR records bit for bit, so it's the input signal that matters. See the thread on BTV PQ.

Thanks so much for the quick reply. It was a great help. That's kind of dumb that there isn't a receiver that can output HD to two TV's in Dual TV mode, but what can you do. They are available in the states, but as usual Bell is slow to adopt. A two receiver set up wouldn't be so bad if receiver prices weren't so absurd.

Cable/Internet/Cellphone/Satellite companies in Canada make me want to pull my hair out. The CRTC needs to put a stop to this nonsense.

3. It does still output both the component and HDMI feeds while in dual mode. So yes you can have it run two HD TVs in dual mode but both will be the same TV1 signal.

If you are not using the TV2 output, it's better to be in single mode since it allows extra features such as PIP and tuner swap.

Am using the TV2 output. For a different signal. But like watching TV1 on my choice of HDTVs on different floors.

Dual mode and with two HDTVs connected to TV1 is what works for me.
