I own an "old" Pioneer PDP-503CMX plasma display that I purchased when it first came out (yes, paid 5 figures for it...) along with the PDA-5002 video card that has a DVI input but no HDCP support.
Until now, everything's been working great. My media PC, Directv satellite top-box, and XBox 360 have all been able to display amazing video in 720p, and 5.1 sound is handled by my Denon receiver.
Now that new devices are out and the world is evolving a bit, I've acquired new toys such as a 13" MacBook Air and an Apple TV. Unfortunately, neither of these work - likely due to lack of HDCP support.
I've tried various HDMI and DVI cables, HDMI to DVI adapters, converter boxes such as the ones sold by Monoprice.com, to no avail. I'm also getting an "out of range" message on the display for several inputs.
The short question is: is there still a way to make my plasma display HDCP-compliant, or am I SOL?
I've read a bunch about Aurora cards but have not been able to find a compatible one that is still being sold.
If you know of alternative & creative ways around this, any input would be highly appreciated.
Thanks for your help,
