There is no such thing as a analog HDMI signal.

On the other hand, it could be a resolution setting on the DVR. Most HDMI signals are 720p, 1080i, or 1080p. What is your DVR putting out? If it...

So, the W1070/1075.

It offers real upgrades for a bit of money, and all else aside, it actually is delivering on the advertised lamp hours according to owners who have hit 4,000+ hours of use.
