Isn't the 1920x1080i signal pushing the limits of what DVI can handle? 
I presume you have a single-channel DVI.  It almost looks to me like
the set is on the hairy edge of sync with that signal.  The 720p
signals push slightly less information, which could explain why the ABC
broadcasts work.

I don't suppose the set has a VGA input for comparison?  (Some do, like
my old-tech Pioneer RPTV with quaint "CRT" technology.)
