I realize some of you could care less about the lack of native output on the Hopper DVR. This isn't for you. For those of us who would prefer a native option there is still hope. Dish's official comment: "As far as a pass through setting, we list the 1080, 720 and 480 options for the general consumer to make it easier for them because so many do not understand the native setting. However, this setting may come in future updates, but have not made any announcements on this. As Hopper goes into more homes with high-end installations then the need for the native setting option grows.” So let's get this to happen! Even if it's in a sub menu or hidden to keep the convenience the way it is. For those of you who might not know, if you use a new-ish dedicated receiver for surround sound your image processor in that is almost surely superior to what's in the hopper.
