    Looking for a way to test my monitor to confirm that it is HDCP compliant before hooking it to a C31 via HDMI to DVI cable. Starz is free this weekend.

    I think Ch201 is useful to test HDCP.

    Cool. I currently have the monitor hooked to an H21 via an HDMI to DVI cable. 201 tunes in OK. I am considering upgrading to a Genie and C31s and wanted to see if the C31, which has HDCP turned on for all channels would work with my computer monitor. If 201 uses HDCP then I must be OK. Thanks.

    Hopefully somebody here can verify. I don't have a non-HDCP TV to check, but once upon a time they used Ch 201 as a test channel for HDCP.

    I've been getting the HDCP warning for quite awhile on the set I watch the most. No programming has been blocked. Interestingly, the kitchen TV, which is connected with component cables, got the same warning yesterday. It seems to be a software glitch.
