Component video cables are compatible with 1080i (and 1080P) if the equipment allows. If the DVD player was sending 480P and you're finding no issues with 720P, perhaps your TV was still "more stressed" with a 1080i signal. Glad you found a solution, although, that doesn't explain the problem with the DVD player, since that's a "passthrough" on the STB and you said you could see a problem when going through the Pace, while the problem was not there with a direct connection.
