X-1 set up help, please...

I'm testing my X-1 set up before I run wires and I seem to have run into a little snag.

I purchased the VGA to component adapter so I could use component cables. However, it appears that this only works with HD or Progressive scan. I'm hooking this up to a standard Dishnetwork receiver and a Toshiba TiVo/Progressive scan DVD player (SHD-400 I think). I had thought I could just hook the dish receiver into the Toshiba, and use the Toshiba Component out's to the X-1. But now I'm not so sure this will work (My dish player is receiving set up info right now, so I really haven't tried it, but when I tried to pipe a non-progressive scan DVD player to the X-1 with component it didn't work).

So my question is, am I going to have to run two inputs to the X-1? S-video or RCA for TV play and component for DVD play? Is there a way to run components to the X-1 for both DishTV reception and DVD play?

Thanks, got (and am still getting) some great help over at AVS and the Tivo community boards. Dang there is a lot of information at both, but you can find about anything over there....
