I tried to search for an answer to this question, but could not find it in other forum threads, so I am hoping somebody can answer my question here.
I am running my vip 722 in single tuner mode and have turned on shared view, I have two HD TV's. One is connected via HDMI to the 722. The 722 also feeds its signal via cable to the entire house. My other TV is connected via cable in a different room

My TV1 signal is being output on air channel 27,

When I turn my second TV to "analog channel 27", I can now see the same Tv1 signal on my TV2 (which is a HD TV) and can control the tuner with both the IR remote and the UHF remote.

My question is this:
the output that is seen on TV2 under the above scenario, is it HD or down-rezzed to SD?. Dish tech support tells me that the TV1 output is HD and I am seeing HD on my second TV, but the display option shows analog channel 27 is 480i. also, when i turn another non HD TV to channel 27, I am able to watch the signal on this TV too, so I am wondering, how can the signal be HD?. if it can be seen on a non HD TV as well.

Any thoughts?

TV2 is NOT HD, just SD. HDTVs can view SD. To get it on the other set, you need to run HDMI or componet...or get a separate HD receiver.

Yeah, I understand that TV2 is just SD, but I guess my question is since both TV1 tuner output and TV2 tuner output are being put out on the coax cable and being received by the other TV, are both down graded to SD before being output on the coax cable connection. I knew the TV2 output was, never really thought about TV1 output.

The answer is yes.
