Good to hear - I'll have to keep that in mind.

I noticed you have it connected to a HD Fury - I have been contemplating
getting one of those because I have a unit that due to it's location, the
component cables come out of the receiver if they are breathed on the wrong
way.  Does it work well between your receiver and HDPVR?  Any noticeable
artifacts or anything?  I have DirecTV receivers which in HDMI will not
play 1080p content without a HDCP capable HDMI endpoint.  From the name in
your database I can see it is probably not DirecTV, but it might be the
same for your device?
