HDCP on DVDs that come with some BluRay?
I have a standard def set up at my cottage thats uses component for the video connections. I have my old DVD collection up there and I also took all the new DVDs that are sometimes included with Blu-ray discs up there.
I tried to play one of these DVDs (True Grit) the other day on my Denon DVD player, its a later generation DVD player that had upscaling and HDMI, but I'm using the comp out. I couldn't get a picture. The DVD played, I got sound, but my processor , Emotiva UMC1 with HDMI, displayed an error message that "you need to use a HDMI connection to view this source".
Fist of all, do all these "blurry DVDs" have copy protection? Are they suppose to? I thought the copy protection was for HD only?
It seemed like the DVD player was playing the disc fine, it was my processor that was stopping it, is this how HDCP is suppose to work? Or was the UMC1 malfunctioning? If I used a processor that was pre-hdmi would it play? Again, Im talking standard def DVDs.
