As if we needed any more proof that is was sw, I hooked up a Gefen component->hdmi A/D box, since my TV was limited to 480i component inputs. Hooked the same hdmi->DVI cable and bingo, HD TV again. Not a bad box. Oversaturated, especially at 1080i, but at 720p, if the TV controls are toned down, its a very nice picture. It's not at all obvious that the signal is not pure digital. Think dish would refund me the bill?
