I know their receivers have no ability to pass through a "native" signal, forcing you to choose 1080i or 720p, but does DISH also modify the format at the head end when they down-res the originating signals, say forcing everything on the bird to 1080i or 720p?
They don't fundamentally convert one into the other, but it's not the case that they leave the signal completely unmolested, either. You should see the lengthy discussions about "HD Lite" and/or MPEG4 recompression...
