Just reference this thread:
Actually, the solution is rather simple. The DVR just needs to "see" an actively powered valid HDCP compliant device attached to its HDMI output to get rid of the message. Just attach a HDMI powered splitter or switch which is HDCP compliant to the DVR's HDMI output like this:
DVR HDMI output -> HDMI powered splitter/switch (HDCP compliant) -> your TV's HDMI input or other HMDI input devices.
This will work whether your TV is off or on because the splitter or switch stays powered on all the time. You can find these at monoprice ranging from $25 to $50. Just make sure it's a powered splitter or switch.
Thanks much for the help. Your suggestion certainly seems to make sense, and I'll be giving it a try as soon as I can get a powered HDMI splitter.
This seems worth it to me. I can't watch HBO now, or, I get to watch all of my TV content over Component video. Really? Component?
I can't figure out exactly which splitter to get, though. Monoprice may be a great lead, I just don't know which one to get. Does anyone have one that works well?
I was looking at these two products. http://www.monoprice...3#specificationhttp://www.monoprice...3#specification
The first doesn't mention HDCP in its specifications, but, in one of the user reviews, it does say that it worked to stop a similar issue with a cable company's signal. The second one does mention HDCP in its specifications.
Any input regarding whether either of these two should work and/or other suggested products would be appreciated.
