Comcast HD-UDTA issues?

HDTV Technical - www.avsforum.com
After years of using a Samsung DTB-H260F STB with my Mitsubishi WS-55413 TV Comcast has seen fit to encrypt my cable. I am now in possession of my second UDTA from them so I can have functioning cable television again. Unfortunately, it doesn't work! The device appears to activate (it starts with 2 blinks and a pause, but after following the activation procedure I get a solid green LED on it), but neither UDTA that I have tried has given me a picture.

My TV is old enough that it has an encrypted DVI connection. It has worked with every other device I have thrown at it, which leads me to believe that maybe the problem isn't with the HDMI negotiation, but instead with the DTA output resolution. This TV does not accept a 720p input signal. Anyone know what the output resolution on a DTA is? Any suggestions for how I can make it work (new TV not gonna happen, this thing still looks great, I'm holding out for more affordable 4K sets)? .avs-threads-first-post-500x50 { width: 500px; height: 50px; } '); }
