Why won't my Apple TV (2nd Gen) work with my awesome HD-capable Sony Trinitron?

AppleTvFilter: I'm trying to get my Apple TV (2 gen) to work on my HDCP-capable Sony Trinitron, but am having some weird issues.

I bought a Sony Trinitron KV-36HS510 so I could play all my old retro gaming consoles, as well as have the added bonus of it being HD-capable up to 1080i. According to the specs, the DVI input on the TV is HDCP compliant, so I bought an HDCP compliant HDMI to DVI cable from MonoPrice, plugged in my Apple TV, but nothing will play.
I'm not getting any HDCP errors, or wavy lines or anything; in fact, the picture looks great. Whenever I try to access a Netflix movie, I can navigate through the menus, then I get the "Accessing Netflix" spinner, then the movie loads but never plays (I can see one frame... it's like the movie is frozen). This occurs whether I start a movie from the beginning, resume play, or fast forward to a random spot. More troubling is when I try to access my own content on my home network I get a "Can't stream content" error.
Any ideas what might be causing this?
