Terry arn't you doing that? I think Mike Parker has run that from a HTPC to a moome as well.
All digital input devices (HDFury, Moome etc) are all limited by the HDMI standard - 165Mhz. You can get very very close to 1080p/72 by changing s few values around like Gino has - porches etc .. The only way you can get analog 1080p/72/75 is via a HTPC - even now, this ability is being switched off via drivers on some cards and when ICT arrives..
Gino - no, I mean 1080P via analog - my C2, my CalibreHD and my VP50 - none allowed 1080p via analog. Yes they are capable, but no manufacturer allows this - otherwise they kiss their HDCP keys goodbye
Any HDCP enabled source will trigger the VP to disable the analog outputs. This is part of manufacturers adhering to the HDCP standard. Technically, they could be downscaled but all the VPs I know of turn off all analog outputs..

VP50 (Anchor Bay)http://www.anchorbaytech.com/support/faq/vp50.php
"The iScan VP50 does process an HDCP-encrypted signal and output the signal on the HDMI output with the HDCP encryption intact. If the input signal is HDCP-encrypted then the analog outputs of the iScan VP50 must be turned off for legal constraints."
