Here's why I ask. I have a 57" Hitachi RPTV, ~3yrs old. Input one has HDMI and component. The hdmi connection is the primary. I have my Dish Network 622 plugged in and it's always on (active ). Which means I can't really can't use the components on input 1. Input 2 is for my 360. If the Apple TV off when not in use, I can plug it into the hdmi port and use component cables for my 622.
