    I'll get to it. I just haven't had the chance.

    Okay: with no promises that this will work for anyone else, since I haven't a clue why this solution works and merely followed the advice to get a powered HDMI-Splitter (HDCP compliant), this is the one I bought, and has worked for me*.

    1x2 Pigtail HDMI® Splitter

    *Three notes:
    1. I haven't even been powering it, since it seems to be working without the power plugged into it. Perhaps that is because I'm not actually splitting the HDMI signal?
    2. Yesterday, a few times when I turned on the TV, the color was strange (very yellow). I found that switching the input and putting the DVR into standby and back corrected the issue. This may or may not be related to item #1, the fact that I haven't plugged in the splitter's power adapter.
    3. When first connecting the splittler, it didn't display anything on the screen when I used position 1 in the splitter, but it did for position 2.

    Again, no promises that it will work for anyone else.

    Yes, it is affecting Dish Network.

    HBO should just be grateful that millions of cable/satellite subscribers who DON'T watch their channel are effectively 'subsidizing' or paying for HBO anyway, because of how cable/satellite are sold in bundles with several hundred channels. Isn't that effectively a form reverse piracy, HBO stealing money from people with no interest in watching HBO?

    Teays...
    No. HBO is a separate premium subscription package. Only those that want to pay for it are paying for it.
