I guess I am in the same boat as above
Brand new Dell XPS 15, Full HD Screen, Same as above, SD plays as it should, HD is a Green Screen.
If I connect this laptop to my TV Via HDMI, the HD content can be seen there. Just not on my laptop Screen.
i7 core, 8 gigs ram, Blu Ray, ect ect, this thing is loaded. DirecTV2PC just doens't want to play HD Content on it. And yes, I downloaded the latest Drivers from Nvidia too. All up to date.
Nice to know that I'm not the only one spending a chunk of change to get a pretty decent laptop (Core i7, 6GB Ram, 750GB hard Drive, Intel HD Graphics, Blu-ray, etc) only to find out that the DirecTV2PC software won't play my recorded content. I should have continued to use my 2 year old Acer with a Core 2 Duo which worked just fine with this software.
My wife has an HP laptop with Intel Core i3 processor and older Intel Graphics chipset and it plays all the Directv content fine. I just don't ef'en understand why a newer, more powerful laptop won't play the HD content.
What's the deal here DirecTV???? According to the searches that I have done and information I've found on Intel's web site, their 2nd generation chips are fully HDCP compliant. So why then does the DirecTV2PC software and the Advisor not detect that? I wish that all the playes would sit down at the same table and get their heads together and work out an agreement.
Just finished updating the graphics drivers to the latest version available. Re-installed the DirecTV2PC application and tried it again. Still displaying green screen with audio on any HD channel that is on satellite. All local off the air broadcasts that are HD play great. All SD Content plays great.
I just don't get this. It is pretty F'd up. I guess I'm going to go backwards and start recording programs in SD so that I can watch them when I want on my fancy new laptop.
