    I was wondering if anyone has mutliple displays outputted from a single apple tv? are all ports active or only one?

    Example, my dvr in my living room outputs to the 42 inch plasma in the living room as well as a 12 inch lcd in the kitchen, this allows me to go back and forth between the 2 rooms and not have to pause.

    I would like to do this with an apple tv and have it available to each tv in the house (family room, kitchen, and master) my idea is to use it as the source for my whole house audio with a display and remote in each location.

    Anyone using a similar setup? Are both the hdmi and component outputs putting out video?

    If need be i think i could always put a splitter on the component out and feed it to the different displays, just no extra hardware to buy if the hdmi and component work simultaneously.

    Google for "hdmi hub" or some variation with "replicator" in it. Gefen (www.gefen.com) specializes in it.

    Cheers

    Is anyone else using a similar setup? I've noted alot of folks list multiple apple tvs which i understand from a storage and ability to play different content in each location standpoint.

    From my point of view i'm primarily looking for distributed audio with some video, i'm fine with the single piece of content playing at a time. It is also pretty easy to explain to the wife that we now have an apple tv whole house channel since we already have the dvr (replay tv) available throughout the house.

    guess i'll have to buy one and see what my output options are, but anyone feel free to post if they has this setup.
