Can I use 1 remote to control both TV 1 and TV 2?
I am setting up a 722 to two HDTVs. I am running HDMI to TV1 and component
and coax to TV2. TV1 and TV2 will both show the same channel in HD. If I want
to watch a different channel on TV2 I can switch the inputs and watch in SD. I know
I can set up the 2nd remote to control TV1. Can I set up the remote to also control
TV2 (with the AUX button or ?)?

First which remote do you have? Single or dual mode? Is TV1 set for RF?

While I believe that most of the more recent remotes of the last few year do allow for ONE remote two control TWO different Dish boxes, there isn't a "quick, one button" feature that would allow you to instantly control TV2 only using the TV1 (presuming an IR/RF model) remote. To do that, you would have to have to go through the programming remote process, but that is cumbersome.
The easiest solution would be to either have the TV2 remote with you in the TV1 room, or buy an additional TV2 remote (about $20) and keep that one in the TV1 room so you don't always have to bring the original TV2 from that room to the TV1 room. I vote to just buy a 2nd remote and be done with it.
