cannot do high-def w/ component outputs from computer
Posted 26 April 2009 - 08:52 PM
i haven't been able to stream, or force and HD stream, from netflix at home or work on my HDTV's connected to a computer.
at home, its connect by component, and at work, by dvi-to-vga adapter.
i just installed cyberlink powerdvd 9 and cannot play DVD's on my HDTV.
I kept getting an aspect ratio error. finally i switched to clone mode and got a similar error, but explained in more detail. it says i cannot play copy-protected content through my video card's TV out.
so I have to assume a DVI-to-HDMI adapter will work. According to the nvidia website, my card supports HDCP.

I had to use a DVI-to-HDMI cable to enable DHCP.
Video quality is about equal using HDMI instead of component, but the sharpness of my desktop is much better using the HDMI.
