The answer is "yes", but just to be clear: The HDfury decrypts any HDCP encoded signals so that you can view them on non-HDCP compliant devices. The term 'strip' is incorrect - decrypt is a better term.
Would I have to have an HDCP compliant HDMI-DVI adapter to connect my HDMI cable to the HD Fury with if I want 1080p?
No such thing as an HDCP compliant HDMI-DVI adapter... and HDMI-DVI adapter is a passive device. Just two types of connectors with wires in-between.
Here's how you'd hook up a PS3 (for example) to your Sony GDM-FW900:
PS3 HDMI output -> HDMI-to-DVI-D cable -> HDfury -> Sony GDM-FW900
Depending on what kind of RGBHV input your monitor has, you'd likely use either:
HDfury with the "BLUE" (VGA) cable if your monitor has a VGA input
HDfury with the "GREEN" (5BNC) cable if your monitor has 5BNC inputs
The best solution (if you have room behind your monitor) is to plug the HDfury directly into your monitor's VGA (female) input and not use any cable at all.
