Blu-Ray HDCP Error

Reggie Hillier

I just installed a LG BR/HD player with a 4670 1gig. I am using Power DVD
and I get
an error " Fail to enabl HDCP. Please switch to analog
output..............". I am connected
to a Dell 24" lcd. I am using dvi to dvi. Do I have to use the dvi/hdmi
adapter and connect
to the hdmi input on my monitor ?
Thanks !

My hardware is different (nVidia GTX280 graphics card), but my connection is
through a DVI cable, and HDCP is supported through it. PowerDVD 7.3 is the
software that came with my LG BD-ROM/DVD-RW drive.

Your graphics card supports HDCP. Does your monitor? (I'd expect it to, if
it has an HDMI input available.)

PowerDVD 7 does not allow audio to be passed over the HDMI cable. It causes
a HDCP error.

Does the Dell support HDCP? Just because it has DVI doesn't mean it has
HDCP (HiDef Copy Protection) support. Your video card may also require
HDCP support.

My 2408WFP has DVI-D with HDCP but I can't speak for the entry-level models.

Got it working. I used the dvd/hdmi adapter and connected a hdmi cable into
my Dell and all is working.
Thanks!
