    SB500 to DirecTV HR25 via HDMI - can it work?

      I am trying to hook up my SB 500 to a DirecTV HR25 (the HD receiver without DVR).  It has HDMI and AV outputs but no Composite video output.

       

      When I hook it up with just HDMI it proceeds to disable the copy protection (and, therefore, I believe, the entire signal) and I get no video and it won't set up.

       

      When I hook it up with the A/V I get video but then it gives the error message that the cabels are not HD.

       

      If I leave it like this I can get SD signal but the error message keeps popping up.

       

      There is no compnent video option.

       

      Can you use a SB500 with DirecTV anymore via HDMI?

       

      Thanks....
