Audio & video content protction Tags: ASRock Audio Video Motherboards Last response: September 20, 2012 8:14 PM in Motherboards Share oneeye_72 September 20, 2012 7:39:40 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?
