Daperlman, I don't quite follow you... I have an SD tivo and an HD receiver in my den... but I still don't see how replacing the HD receiver with the HD Tivo will allow me to simulcast HD programming from the Den to other rooms.
feldon, it's certainly not a showstopper, just a disappointment. FWIW, there are two different reasons I'd like this: some times I'll watch something in the den, and want it also in other rooms. Might be because I have a bunch of people over, or might be because I get up & go to the kitchen to make a snack, and don't want my roommate to have to sit with it paused waiting for me to get done. The other issue is simply watching programming that is stored in the den. Multiple tivos just isn't the best answer... who wants to have to maintain multiple lists? And there are networks I watch that are only available in HD.
In the end, what it's going to mean is "giving up" HD in the den when those situations arise... I'll have to switch the output of the HD-tivo to SD when I also want to watch it elsewhere. Like I said, not a HUGE deal, just would have been nice to have the feature, as it's not uncommon on other HD receivers today.
Right now, I'm so embarrassed to live in Georgia, all I know to do is laugh about it:
"I don't know how many of you have ever run over a skunk with your car. I have many times, and I can tell you, the stink stays around for a long time. You can take the car through the wash, and it's still there. So the scent of this Super Bowl halftime show will long linger in the nostrils of America." - Senator Zell Miller - Republocrat - Georgia
