    Before I begin trying new wires, I'd like to see if you all have this issue. If you have a 1080p/24 TV, then can you try playing a 1080p movie to see if you get an HDMI content protection error message? In the resolution set up, it passes the 1080p test, but movies won't play.

    Note: The first 5 minutes of 1080p DoD is free, you will not be charged.

    I'll give this a try when I get home, but about 2-3 weeks ago I watched a 1080P movie on my HR24-100 using MRV (the movie was downloaded on a HR22-100) and everything worked fine.

    Mine (H24-100) seemed to work pretty well during that portion of the trial. I have a newer-ish TV though.

    I forgot...my tv is definitely a 1080p/24 capable set. My old HR20 played 1080p fine on the same wired set up.

    Same result. Screen continues flashes like the HDMI won't lock. The tv will indicate 1080/24hz.

    I get a message from the DVR regarding content protection and switch to component cables...all while the screen flashes.

    Have you tried any other media that outputs at 1080/24 to make sure it is not the TV with the issue?

    Yes, blu ray's fine. Even the "test" via set up of resolution confirms it's ok.

    Another, probably stupid, question... Have you tried playback of diffrerent movies on the receiver to verify it is not an issue with the encoding of that one movie?

    Yea, I even tried the 1080p channels. It just flashes and says copyright protected material.

    This is really weird, now. I can't tune to any Cinema channel without the HDMI content protection message. Also, I downloaded of the free MGMHD 1080p movies & it plays fine...I'm baffled.

    Did you try restarting your receiver? I hate to ask, but it's a thought.

    I think there's some PPV authorization issue, because I can play a 1080p movie from MGM DOD just fine...the tv even displays it's correct 24hz output. No PPV channels can display. I can't call and get tech support.

    I had 4 HDMI cords to test each combination.

    Every HDMI cord passed 1080p/24, including all PPV movie channels, from the HR24-100 to the TV directly, so there is no handshake issue with the TV.



    Now, I tested everything with HDMI to my Yamaha RX-V465 and HDMI out to my TV.
    Every combination of HDMI cords successfully passes the 1080p test in Setup.​
    Every combination of HDMI cords successfully plays a DOD 1080p/24 FREE movie titled Blue Steel.​


    Here's where the problems begin, with every HDMI combination to my Yamaha RX-V465 and HDMI out to my TV..
    When selecting any 1080p 'Watch Now' or 1080p channel, the content protection message appears and the screen blinks.​
    When tuning to a PPV channel, even non HD and regular HD showings, the content protection message appears and the screen blinks.​


    Conclusion: There is a serious HDMI handshake issue with protected content (PPV or 1080p/24 Cinema Now) with the HR24-100 & Yamaha RX-V465. I'd like to point out that there were no issues passing protected content via HR20-700 through the Yamaha RX-V465, so the Yamaha will work with PPV & Cinema.

    @sigma:

    What happens when you connect the HR24 directly to the TV? I didn't notice that combination in your examples. Does this still cause the protected content message? It may be an issue with the passthrough on your AV receiver.

    ;)

    I think it's the AV receiver and HR24-100 not "hand shaking" correctly with protected content since no PPV channels will pass. A HR20-700 passed everything through the AV.

    It was the second line of your post. I only read the odd number lines so I didn't see it initially. :lol:
