Careful, there. Most of those sets are DVI-D, not DVI-I. Furthermore, they're not normal DVI -- they're HDCP/HDMA-encrypted (which is why they're on the set to begin with. Don't like it? Thank the MPAA. It was their idea).
So that may or may not work.
Some earlier sets do just have plain DVI-I, or plain DVI-D. Almost all sets sold now have DVI-D w/HDMA.
