New Contour 2 box, 1080P, second HDMI port on Pace XG2 cable box, componet output

Can  you tell me why the new cable box offers a 1080P setting?   To my knowledge no programing offers 1080P

other than BlueRay players.  Which normally gets connected directly to a second HDMI input on the TV, nothing to do

with the cable box.

My box,   Pace XG2 has a second HDMI cable port.  Can you tell me what the purpose of it is?

  I have been using a slingbox for many years.  I was disappointed the new Contour 2 only offered a lower grade video composite output

vs. 5 cable componet.  Now I have to buy a adapter with HDMI bypass to give me the componet signal for my slingbox.

    I'm not familiar with the 2nd HDMI port's function however the 1080p is about accommodating the TV and potentially for some future-proofing. The lack of component outputs I believe is an issue with HDMI and content licensing restrictions.
