Audio & video content protction
Sep 20, 2012, 7:39 PM
I was reading through the fine print of the ASRock Z77 Extreme4 MoBo and came across this: '- 7.1 CH HD Audio with Content Protection',
does this mean I won't be able to play my audio collection because I don't have the original tapes anymore?
Or should I buy this board and not have any problems with my collection.
I also saw this: '- Supports HDCP function with DVI and HDMI ports' Does this mean that only the VGA port is usable for High Def. films?

HDCP and Content Protection refer to being able to play protected content on media like BluRay Disks.
Go here for more detail:
BTW, your audio collection will play just fine. No worries.

Many thanks for that, I've been reading all sorts of scare stories, when I did a search for content protection.
Nice to know that my faith in the above board is well placed.
