    Your TV does not support this pro

    Today I tried to watch HBO recordings (game of thrones) on my hr-44-500 on my Panasonic TC-P60ST60. I started with game of thrones it had recorded and I was getting blank screen after hitting play on it. I rebooted the hr44 no luck. I moved the hdmi cable directly from TV->hr44, and I see that this message is showing up. I have tried a different HDMI cable (I am using a Redmere cable from newegg) and also a regular hdmi 1.4 high-speed cable. Both do the same thing. I get this error on hbo, stars, encores, but don't on some showtimes, and cinemaxes (the higher channel ones but the ones closer to 500 have same error. I have also rebooted my AVR, bypassed AVR (Harmon Kardon 245), TV, and hr44 4 times each.

    Anyone else experience this? Everything used to work fine, and now this. I did self tests on hr44 and no errors were found. I'm a bit at a loss, all this stuff worked when the guy installed it a month ago. My C41 client's seem fine too.

    Anyone have suggestions? I've also tried in video settings, native, non native, switching between all of the resolutions, same problem.

    Did you hook up anything else to the receiver ? Using 2 connections to the receiver will cause this.
    If you have HDMI and Component hooked to the TV from the receiver you will get this message.
    Removing either cable should work.

    If you only have an HDMI cable hooked up, try removing it and using a set of Component ( Red, Blue and Green for Video and Red and White for Audio ). This will show 1080i in the same quality as the HDMI cable. I run my Samsung this way.

    I started getting this message also with my Toshiba TV and HR21. However then the show would start okay. I only have one output from the HR21. Must be something new going on.

    Component cables do not pass 1080i, or 1080p, only 720p

    try resetting HDMI connection;
    hook up like you had before
    then turn external components on one at a time
    turn TV on last
    see if that helps

    I have had this issue in the past with an HR22 via HDMI
    but it seemed to have resolved itself with a RBR

    Component cables pass 1080i just fine, lots of people use 1080i over component. The cables themselves would pass 1080p, but the movie industry has decided they will only allow premium channels to be delivered over HDMI, because there is no copy protection on component.

    I see the warning (very briefly) a few times a day. Never had it persist at my house, but I have seen some cable TV boxes do it (continuously) when connected both ways as described above.

    Quick Question for you, then back on topic. I had planned on using a HR44 to feed a tv in one room by hdmi and by component in a different room. Will this work? From your post above it seems it might not or is it just some shows that will not allow it.

    It will work, but very inconveniently. If the HDMI-connected TV is off, the link will fail the HDMI/HDCP test and so all the video will switch off. The only way to make this work correctly is to use a powered HDMI splitter (monoprice etc) and connect both TVs via HDMI,
    And the HDMI/component combination won't work for 1080p programming because the receiver won't deliver 1080p over component.

    It baffles me every time I see comments like this. this is along the lines that the "Monster" cable gives you better picture than an of brand cable
