Some are using the HDFury adapter / converter that decrypts HDCP while converting but it converts to Component Video, not DVI. Also I think its in the $250 range.
Component is not a bad choice. Its not digital and it does not carry an audio signal but you can get 1080p over component if the output and input device support it over component. Thats not really an issue though since the ATV is outputting 720p.
Here is a link to the latest HDFury starting at $245.. http://www.curtpalme.com/HDFury3.shtm
There is an HDFury 1 starting at $99 but I'm not sure about the spec differences, etc...

Thanks a lot for your advice.
The solution looks interesting, though $245 is a lot of money (especially since I already had to buy the audio converter…).
What about the HDFury1? Would it work if I would get a HDMI to DVI cable with it?
Has anyone maybe already tried this solution?
Thanks a lot for your help & regards from Canada,
P.S.:Btw, will I also need HDCP to watch Netflix movies?
Is there any solution to watch a movie using the DVI connection???
Your help is highly appreciated!!!
Thanks a million,
As mentione in other posts, I use DVI input on my NEC 42" Plasma (1080i).....
to connect the ATV2..........
I purchased a Belkin HDMI to DVI Cable - available from Apple Online Store; (AUD$19)
It works perfectly....and Video Quality is excellent.
I also use a Toslink cable from the ATV2 to my Yamaha Receiver - for great 5.1 Audio
Hope this helps
