HDCP Compliance issues with build.

Hello,

Having a problem playing Bluray discs without the use of AnyDVD and even with the use of it (for brand new discs).

When running the almost pointless CL BD Advisor tool, it states the only error is Video Connection Type: Digital (without HDCP).
PowerDVD12 gives an error code of 0110.

My GPU is an XFX Radeon HD5670 which should be HDCP compliant, it is then going HDMI to HDMI to the monitor, a Hannspree HT09 (Model T281H) which as far as I can tell is also HDCP compliant.

Not sure where the underlying issue is here. BD player is Pioneer BDR-207DBK 1.21 (Most recent drivers). GPU also has most recent drivers.

Edit: Unplugged random VGA cable, switched HDMI socket and removed all other connection cables, still no change.

Any ideas?

You are correct, the Hannspree HT09 is HDCP compliant.

Are your video player applications up to date as well?

Yep, everything checks out fine.

Running both MPC/CCCP (Can play BD's with AnyDVD without issue) and PowerDVDU12.

AnyDVD bypasses the need for HDCP, I believe so you can't use it as a gauge.

Have you tried a different HDMI cable?

Also, you may consider uninstalling your video players and re-installing them (with all of their updates). It is possible that your software isn't recognizing the lateest firmware as applied to the BD player.

You might also consider re-applying the latest firmware release to the Pioneer just to verify it properly installed.

Bought a new HDMI cable and tried another, still having the same error.

Did you try re-installing your media players and BD firmware yet?

Yes.

Considering whether the dvi port on the HD5670 is hdcp compliant and not the hdmi but cannot find anything to confirm.

Yes, it should be compliant. Have you tried using it? Just keep in mind that audio doesn't get passed via DVI. You can connect your on-board audio to your HDTV or to your speakers for sound.

Onboard audio is currently going to a separate speaker system.
Do not have DVI to HDMI cable so can't check whether that works.

Just get a DVI to HDMI adapter. Many video cards actually ship with them.

Does your display have settings your can modify for its connectors?
September 28, 2012 6:39:05 PM

Not sure I fully understand what you mean.

On the monitor, you should have a menu that you can modify settings with. Things like adjust volume output, darkness, contrast, etc. Some monitors will let you tweak connection settings.

Based on the screen capture you posted, there seems to be an issue with the display. Were you connected via HDMI when you captured that?
September 28, 2012 6:46:36 PM

Yes, currently though HDMI.

No relevant menu settings on display.

What rez are you running to that Hannspree? I see from the specs that it has a native rez of 1920x1200, even though it's a 1080p TV. HDCP verification might be getting tripped up when sending 1080p (1920x1080 @60Hz) DRM video to the display.

If you are running 1920x1200, try to manually set your output to 1920x1080 @60Hz and see if it clears the HDCP error.

rwpritchett - Tried on various resolutions including restarts. No difference.
COLGeek - Tried both HDMI ports.

Understood. Try the DVI adapter route and check the results. This is a truly odd problem.

Hello,
I saw your HDCP issue which you posted back in 2012. I just bought a new computer which has the exact same issue. The last advice someone gave you was to "Try the DVI adapter route and check the results. ". did that work for you?

I see many people have this same issue but I have yet to find the solution. Did you solve this problem?
thanks. jvb
