I have my rogers HD cable box hooked up to my LED TOSHIBA tv through HDMI cable. I keep getting this message appear when change the channel sometimes "YPBPR blocked for copy protection, press exit to cancel." What is this? and how do I stop it from appearing. Nothing else is hooked up to the HD box. Thanks

try hooking it up via the Y PB PR (component HD connection and see if it helps)

Weird I've only heard of that happening when someone hooks up hdmi and some other connection like component...

 

There is only cable in and hdmi out hooked up?

I  agree with Chris.  I have only seen this message when the component o/p is used in conjunction with the HDMI o/p.

Just because you agree, doesn't mean I'm not right. There is another post infact right on this forum that explains that HDCP handshake does not work between all TV's and Cable boxes via HDMI. So to get around it, they use Analog HD Component cables.

@Pauly we're not saying your not right. In fact I agree with you and that your solution will work. I'm just saying that it is weird as I have only seen this issue when hdmi and component are hooked up at the same time. For sure the SA digital boxes leave something to be desired with their HDCP handshake, sometime just turning on devices in a different order fix the issue, other times setting hdmi output to fixed can help.

Sometimes the solution is exchanging the box for a cisco version (noting that you will lose callerid on the tv and the quick start guide)

those that paid for the 4250hd, can't exchange it for the 4642 box, they would have to go out and buy a new one and try to sell their old one

@Pauly yes that does pose a problem. I assumed rented and shouldn't have.

Hi seanhawn19,

You can try turning your TV to the HDMI input, then turn off the TV and your digital box, then turn on the box and then the TV. This should "re-handshake" to allow you to watch through the HDMI input.

Let us know how that goes.
