Samsung s series monitor forum
Hei i just bought a Samsung Monitor (SA350 23") which has a HDMI input and VGA input....in the specs it says "DVI with HDCP"....i cant understand what this mean? also the reason why i bought this monitor was to hook my ps3 up...unfortunately i have no luck ....anyone have any idea ???
HDCP = High-bandwidth Digital Copy Protection
Basically it means you can connect the video card to the monitor to watch Blu-Ray movies or other copy protect HD video content using a DVI connection. That is assuming both monitor and video card are HDCP compliant. Nearly all video cards released in the past 3 years are HDCP compliant.
I have no experience with console games, but your issue connecting a PS3 to a PC monitor is quite common.
