I use a Harmony 650 remote most of the time, but I have the OEM remotes available if I need to issue a command that's too obscure for the Harmony.
Thanks in advance!
Yes. I have a TV and PJ connected to my X4000.
If I remember correctly, the default setting is if both Monitor 1 & 2 are connected, it will output the same picture and resolution to both displays.
I have a Harmony One remote with different activities for 'Watch TV' and 'Watch PJ'. So when using the PJ the signal is still being output to the TV, but since the TV is off it does not matter.
My PJ screen drops down in front of my TV, so I would never be watching both at the same time. However depending on your setup, you could watch both at the same time. You would the need two remotes or switch your Harmony back and forth between 'Devices'.
