I have had no problems playing blu-rays on a zino pc since I purchased it 7 months ago. I have only one monitor (Epson 8350 projector) and my outputs run through a HDMI switch to the projector.

2 days ago I lost the ability to play blu-rays through the computer. I get a message from PowerDVD that 'my display is not HDCP enabled' and when I try WinDVD it says it cannot play a procted disc through this enviroment.

If I backup my disc and play it through Media Center all is fine but the actual discs no longer play.

I have not changed anything on the computer that I can think of and am stumped why all of a sudden im not HDCP Enabled.

Any suggestions on what the problem can be and how I can resolve it? I was planning on getting rid of my PS3 since I have this fully loaded HTPC but now that isnt possible.

Any chance Power DVD did any kind of update that created a problem?

I would try pulling the HDMI switch out of the loop and connect the PC directly to the projector and see if the problem persists.

Just a couple of (probably useless) random thoughts.
