I temporarily have my AZbox premium hooked to a TV with only 2 hdmi inputs so I have to use component video output for the AZ. the 2 hdmi inputs on the TV are being used by my PS3 and Bell expressvu HD reciever...

the weird thing is when I select component for the video output in the AZbox settings the pic gets a little blurry... but if I select HDMI video output in the AZ settings the pic is nice and crisp... but i'm using component cables! 

why does selecting HDMI video output affect the component output? doesnt make sense to me... [confused]

I've noticed the same thing. I keep component as a backup because my azbox when it starts up at least once a week has the hdmi not work. I have to use component to reboot. I've noticed when selecting hdmi the feed looks better on component. I can't answer your question but have noticed that.

I usually keep my Azbox on HDMI, but have the component cables connected via a switch.  I just tried to compare the two. 
With the Azbox set up as HDMI, 1080p, the video looks great on HDMI, but somewhat poor on component.
When I switched the Azbox settings to component 1080i, then the video looks great on both component and HDMI.
  I'm not sure what would happen if I reboot it now, as I seem to remember once that it didn't come up in HDMI when I had it set up as component.   I also thought that I had remembered that it wouldn't work in both HDMI and component at the same time, but I might be remembering wrong. 

  Anyway, it's an interesting topic.  I'm guessing that different people will observe different behavior, depending on what settings they're using and what setting was used first, etc. 
   HDMI seems to be quite variable with respect to communication between the source and TV.  I have some devices that pop up almost instantly when I switch to them, but have other devices that come up as no signal for 20 or 30 seconds, then pop in, and some other devices that never pop in until I do something to reset the connection.   I'm kind of surprised that I'm now able to view the Azbox both via component and HDMI without changing the settings, but I'm guessing that it won't last.

Fellow Members, your posts are welcome here! Do not worry about posting everything perfect. Different receivers and LNB's will give you different Frequencies and Symbol Rates. Some set top boxes, PCI cards and USB receivers, Do Not Require all of the same information that others may need. It is not Required to post everything that others may need to tune in a feed. It is just most important to share the find. We can always adjust the Frequency and Symbol Rates and try the various Modulations and FEC's on our own receivers until we get a lock and then give a polite reply with what works for your receiver, as that information might help others as well. We all appreciate the efforts and energy of the Posters!
