Default HDCP - Does my TV have it, what TV's have it and what if you don't have it?

Hi Everyone,

Sorry for the long title, but I've been reading a lot online lately about Blu Ray, HD-DVD and HDCP. Some sites say that NO TV's right now have HDCP at all and that everyone that has bought, or buys a TV until this is standard is going to be watching HD-DVD and Blu Ray at a downgraded 540p. Other sites say that most newer TV's (last year, to year and a half) are HDCP compliant, or compatible and that those TV's will not have a problem.

So I tried looking online to find out if my TV (Sony Bravia 40" XBR) has HDCP, or if I too will be screwed. Anyone know?

Also, instead of making this thread all about me, I was thinking anyone else who is unsure about their TV having HDCP could post here, and if anyone knows of any online lists of TV models that are HDCP compliant, maybe they could post it.

And, if this has all been covered, or I'm just a complete idiot, sorry.

Thanks in advance!

If i'm not mistaken, if a TV has an HDMI input then it's automatically HDCP compliant. Very simple. I presume the XBR LCD has an HDMI input or two . . . .

That's how I understand it. The HDMI connector is based on the DVI-HDCP model.

Redcalx...think of HDCP as a red flag that the producer of the show broadcasts with the show. When the red flag is sent, that show will only work with an HDCP compliant television.

All the articles I have read are about the show producers not using the HDCP "red flag." The reason for this is b/c a lot a A/V equipment currently in the hands of the consumer are hooked up via other non-HDCP compliant connections (ie. composite, S-video, DVI-I, VGA, RGB, RGB+HV, Y/Pb/Pr, Y/Cb/Cr, etc.)

The only connections that will allow for viewing with the HDCP "flag" are: DVI-D, IEEE 1394, HDMI.

BeastSlayer ... Isn't there an issue of varying compatability when implementing HDCP however? For example, I cannot use an HDMI cable to connect from my Comcast Moto cable box to the HDMI port on my Denon 3806 and then HDMI out of the Denon to my Sony XBR. I get a message like this:
"The HD content protection of your display has been compromised. Please use the YPbPr outputs for your HD connection."
If I take that advise, I am fine. But the cable box and/or Denon seem to have an issue with how HDCP is implemented. People have told me that either the cable box or the Denon need a SW/firmware upgrade to fix this but each company claims that the other is at fault and neither of them have a firmware fix. Do you have any insights about this? Thanks.

I am having the exact same problem. When I connect an HDMI cable between my Comcast HD/DVR box and my TV (Toshiba 51" model 51H84) I get the same message. ("The HD content protection of your display has been compromised. Please use a YPBPr connection.")

I was getting the same message when I was usuing a DVI (single-link)/HDMI cable. When I switch to component cables, it works fine - but the picture is only good, not great.

Comcast doesn't seem to have a solution and, so far, neither does Toshiba? I've seen a few other threads discussing this, but none of them seem to come to any resolution.

Has anyone figured out how to solve this problem?

Default Sony having HD display options

This message has just started to appear on my screen.

The HD content protection of your display has been compromised. Please use the YPbPr outputs for your HD connection

Has anyone found an answer to this one. I had not changed any settings or any wiring in 2 months. I can go to another video and see my blu-ray is working. I'm also using a Comcast HD DVR.

It sounds like your cable company downloaded some changes to your cable box and it has effected the HDCP copy protection handshake. I would call them and complain, but take it to a level 2 tech since the first level that answer the phones generally do not know much.

BTW, Welcome to the forum!
