    The Chain!! THE CHAIN!!!!...evil laughter Hello Folks. Been a Looooong time. I hate being "compliant" sounds like slavery, sadly if I want to watch Netflix in 4K I and all my gear need to behave...sigh If one link in the chain form one end to the other doesn't want to cooperate nothing...
  2. Denon and Marantz Offer HDCP 2.2 Upgrades to Flagship Models (AV8802, AVR-X7200W)

    Home Theater, Audio and Video News
    Copy Protection has existed as far back as the VHS era, existing as an invisible guard of licensed material. The digital media protection protocol we’ve dealt with for the last decade is called High-Bandwidth Digital Copy Protection (HDCP); Blu-ray players and HDTV set-top boxes all carry it...

    Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    Hi All, I purchased a Yamaha receiver in May of 2014 (Aventage 677) I think. But after finding out about it lacking HDMI 2.0 I decided to return it and wait for the next years model. I recently purchased the Yamaha RX A840 and to my disappointment I came across a discussion around HDCP 2.2...

    AV Home Theater
    You've just come home from work and you are psyched to sit down (or lay down) on the couch and watch some cable TV on your HT system. You turn on everything (with your cool universal remote or ipad) and you get a message on your TV- "Connection Error Your HDTV does not support HDCP. Please use...
  6. HDCP out of now where

    Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    Thought I would post this here since it seems the common denominator seems to be my clients HD DIRECTV and his PIONEER VSX-72 which until yesterday was working flawless save for some RF interference he was getting on the new RTI remote control we setup last week....After moving the RF antennae...
  7. HDCP error

    System Setup and Connection
    I was watching a movie yesterday and my TV screen went blank, still hear sound just fine, and my new Pioneer Elite SVX-50 receiver was blinking HDCP error.

  8. HDCP compliant

    Video Game Systems | Video Games
    I recently bought a PS3 noticed that my receiver is not HDCP compliant, so i cannot use 7.1 audio. The receiver is capable of 7.1 but will not work with the PS3, the picture blacks out on racing games. Any ideas other than buying a new audio receiver. Yamaha RX-V563

    Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    How important is it for a newer (HDMI/upconverting/upscaling) receiver to be/have HDCP compliance/decoders. I was looking at Onkyo receivers and noticed not many of the -7 series has them but even the low end denons do. Is this relevant at all? I plan on passing movies through the receiver to...
  11. Video upconversting Receiver + HDCP = Useless (??)

    Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    I just heard something that rather revolutionizes things for me. I file it under rumor so far because I am not certain that it's a technical fact, but at least one commenter (who seems to communicate on the matter in a coherent manner) states it as fact. Basically the idea is that Video...

  13. HDCP and video cards

    Computers | HTPC | Media Servers
    I have a few questions. I'm diving back into an HTPC build and I've been out for awhile. Are there any fully HDCP compliant video cards yet? Is anyone playing back HD DVD and Blu-ray movies from a PC in 1080P to their HDTV? (not counting hacks that might have sidestepped the HDCP). Are the...
