Question about Denon AVR 3808Ci Receiver
Solution #1 is wrong! I have been running my DISH Hopper DVR, via HDMI, thru my 3808ci for the past year and a half. You must choose the correct input on the Denon (i.e. SAT or DVR or whatever) and ensure that that input is set to use the HDMI port (1,2,3 or 4) to which you have the DISH equipment connected.

You are correct. I feel your pain. This will not work.
HDMI is a pure digital signal and the providers require the content coming over the Dish DVR to be COPY PROTECTED. So it will not work unless the HDMI cable goes directly from the DVR to the TV. This is to stop people from being able to make their own recordings of Dish shows, or making copies of your DVR recordings. If you really want to run things through your reciver, you're going to have to use the "component" or "composite" video feeds, not the HDMI. Sorry.
