Problem converting hdmi to dvi

I have a 2004 lava vision pdp 5040 plasma tv, and I am trying to use it with my sky hd box using a hdmi to dvi cable but the tv is simply not registering the sky box. Having checked the cable is not broken and the dvi input is not broken I was told by a man in a shop that the hdmi to dvi cable might be too new a version for my tv i.e. Hdmi 1.3 when I need hdmi 1.1. Could this be the case? Or is it more likely that my tv is not HDCP compatible? If the later is true, what are my options to connect my sky hd box and a ps3 to the tv, when the connections my tv has are a dvi or component input? Many thanks James

the HDMI standards are I believe backwards compatable, never had an issue with ant of the standard cables or adaptors on my TV.
