Would anyone happen to know if the Roku Express (3900) can run 1080i? I was thinking about getting one to replace the Roku 1 currently connected to my 2005 Samsung, but when I tried my current Roku Express (3900) on the Samsung I never got a picture, just blue screen, it's connected with a hdmi cable to dvi adapter. This Samsung unfortunately doesn't have 720p, so my only options are 1080i or 480p.

Yeah, that's what I assume my Roku 1 is doing, it plays fine whether it's set to 720p or 1080p, but my Roku Express just results in a blue screen in 720p or 1080p unfortunately. This tv is 15 years old and while it still has a great picture, I just don't want to spend to much on a device for it, especially given the hdcp handshake problems it tends to have.
