Thanks to those of you who have indicated a possible fix with version L609 to the HDCP Error message 890 problem I reported here almost a year ago on 7-29-09. It's been a few days since I checked to see if there had been any changes on my SONY HDTVs until late last night.....7-08-10 Wow, for the first time in a year, I can report that I now can order/view PPVs and VODs via my HDMI cable on my primary SONY Bravia HDTV with the L609 Software which must have been downloaded over the past few days..... For those still having problems with their VIP612 receiver and this HCDP problem on their HDTV, confirm your current version with the Menu...6-1-3 option to get your version number on the System Info Screen.....then select NEXT....and check that both Your Digital Connection and HDCP options now both say "YES". If so, you should be able to order/view movies with HDMI with no HDCP error message 890. If not, check to see if you have an RGB hookup to a second HDTV or plugged into the VIP612 with nothing on the other end. I will contact my inside tech source and let him know about the report some problems surrounding L609 and this problem. I noticed that, despite the fact I now can get past this problem on my primary SONY HDTV, I still get this HDCP error message on my secondary bedroom SONY HDTV which uses the RGB hookup not HDMI. I will do some additional testing today, and unplug the RGB hookup to that HDTV and change to HDMI to see if that fixes it...but then I would lose HDMI on my primary HDTV. Since there is only 1 HDMI output from the VIP612, does anyone know if there is an HDMI splitter available so I can split the signal on separate cables to both of my HDTVs, and order PPVs on either? On the bright side, I am estimating I saved around $1200 by refusing to order any PPVs or VODs while this problem was in work this past year. I learned that maybe I just don't need to see that much TV anyway....there were a lot of books and activities I enjoyed more......My thanks to all of you that have kept the pressure on DISH to get this fixed on the VIP612s.
