I'm still looking for anyone who has had success hooking this DVR up via the HDMI to a Toshiba 57H83 (or any Toshiba) DVI port.
I have had no luck.
I had my HD DVR install on 11/19. All works, save for the HDMI
I have a Toshiba HDTV Model 26HL83 LCD. Previously I had my 4200HD
Box hooked up via DVI ("Monster" brand) cable connection. The
connection was always a bit quirky. Whenever I first turned on the
TV I would get a message that appeared momentarily on the screen to
the effect that the TV did not support HDCP and to use the PrPbY
component connections, but then the picture would kick in and
everything was fine.
I purchased a DVI to HDMI adapter (also "Monster" brand). However,
when this is hooked up to the 8300HD, the message which used to
appear momentarily with the 4200HD box is now permanent. No video,
just the message. My Toshiba Owner's Manual claims that the TV's
DVI-in terminal is designed to accept HDCP from "EIA/CEA-861-
compliant consumer electronic devices...."
In the meantime, I have had to switch to component cables.
