Since your dishnetwork VP2 doesn't have the ability to output 1080p, you might want consider the current 8 series 1080i HDMI board instead of a second 9 series DVI board. STBs can be notoriously poor at converting from YCbCr to RGB. The HDMI board may (depending on the capabilities of your box) allow you to defer the colorspace transform to the display instead. Of course, if you box does a decent job in the conversion (or doesn't have the ability to output YCbCr) then its a moot point.
Like bwclark says above, it looks like a 1080p-capable HDMI board will have to wait until at least the 10th generation (which means it is almost certain to not work in a 9th generation display - although there's always a chance).
