THANK YOU - the power off/on worked.. This saved me purchasing devices that would probably have caused me more pain than gain.....
How old is your TV?
HDCP stands for High Definition Copy Protection. Pretty much it's DRM for digital high def connections. Your TV needs to support HDCP inorder to use digital HD connections. Switching to component should work since it is an analog connection that does not have HDCP requirements.
I just got an 8300HD PVR under a rogers promotion and am trying to hook it up using HDMI and I am getting this same issue. It says that the TV does not support HDCP, but my manual says that it does. A quick internet search seems to indicate that this is not an issue with my TV.
Is there any way to get this working or am I doomed to use component?
Should I be exchanging this PVR, or are they all like this?
I've tried both orders and no luck.
I also hooked it up to a computer monitor and that worked fine, so it is most likely some kind of incompatibility. I'll look for a firmware patch of something to see if that helps, or bring it back to Rogers and swap for a different one.
Thanks for the ideas.
I'm currently dealing with the same issue with my set up.
LG Plasma and my Cable box is connected a harmon/Kardon AVR.
When i connect the 8300HDPVR directly to the TV, it's all good. However, once i connect it via the AVR i get absolutely nothing.
Also, if i use one of my other cables it works fine. So i'm not sure if it's my Cable, or the settings with my AVR.
The HDMI cable is an RCA one that i bought from Superstore on a whim to avoid travelling for one. Therefore i do not know if it is a 1.4 or not.
Has anybody been able to solve the issue they had with this message?
