Blu-Ray/HD-DVD HDCP playback issues with dual-link monitors

Updated 09/04/2007 06:39 PM

My PC is HDCP compliant.  When I attempt to playback content protected Blu-Ray or HD-DVD movies on my dual-link digital LCD PC monitor, I receive an HDCP error. 


Playing HDCP content requires HDCP ready components, including but not limited to an HDCP ready PC monitor or HDTV, graphics card, Blu-ray or HD-DVD disc drive, software video player and operating system.  If your monitor features a dual-link DVI connection to support higher digital resolutions, it is possible that HDCP will not work with your graphics card even though your graphics card is HDCP ready . Certain older NVIDIA based GPUs support HDCP in single-link DVI mode only.  Currently, only the Geforce 8 series GPUs, excluding the Geforce 8800 family, supports HDCP over a dual-link DVI connection.
