Is there any SLR that provides a clean 1080P HDMI output? Is there any way to hack an SLR to do this either? Thanks!

There certainly are SLRs that can do this. The Canon 5D Mark III recently had a new firmware version release that allowed cinematographers to record a clean 1080p signal out of it's HDMI port: http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/consumer/standard_display/EOS5DM3_firmware
In addition, Canon also added a clean HDMI out on their new Cine line meaning that the Canon 1DC also has a clean HDMI out: http://cinemaeos.usa.canon.com/products.php?type=Camera-1DC
As for Nikon, many of their DSLR's can put out a clean signal over HDMI. The Nikon D600: http://www.nikonusa.com/en/Nikon-Products/Product/Digital-SLR-Cameras/25488/D600.html, D800: http://www.nikonusa.com/en/Nikon-Products/Product/Digital-SLR-Cameras/25480/D800.html, D4: http://www.nikonusa.com/en/Nikon-Products/Product/Digital-SLR-Cameras/25482/D4.html, D5200: http://imaging.nikon.com/lineup/dslr/d5200/, and D7100: http://www.nikonusa.com/en/Nikon-Products/Product/Digital-SLR-Cameras/1513/D7100.html are all able to output a clean signal over HDMI.
Lastly, the Panasonic GH2: http://panasonic.net/avc/lumix/systemcamera/gms/gh2/ and GH3: http://panasonic.net/avc/lumix/systemcamera/gms/gh3/ also have a clean HDMI out if you like those products better.
Hope that helps and good luck!

Also in canon you can use Magic Lantern in some models to have a cleaner HDMI Output

Get a GH4.
I have two HDMI recorders and am not even tempted to hook them up as the in-camera codec has been so good.

A few cameras are missing (I noticed the Sony VG30 the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema, Cinema, and Production cameras – there may be others), but this is otherwise a very useful list of cameras with recordable HDMI and/or SDI output.
