I purchased last weekend a new setup and wanted to hook my PC to it to be a server for movies, as well as be the player for DVDs and Blu Rays (new drive installed at the same time). Here is what I have:
TV = Panasonic P60ST50 (updated to latest firmware) HDCP COMPLIANT
Receiver = Denon AVR2113ci (updated to latest firmware) HDCP COMPLIANT
PC has an Asus Blu Ray Drive, and XFX Geforce 8800GTS video card (updated to latest Nvidia drivers) HDCP COMPLIANT
I also purchased a DVI-HDMI cable from Newegg (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16812270113
I am connecting in the following manner:
Cable Box to receiver via hdmi cable
PC to receiver via DVI-HDMI cable
Receiver to TV via hdmi cable through HDMI (ARC) ports on receiver and TV as per the instructions
When I connect everything, it seems to work good. DVDs play, desktop outputs to TV. Sound is via an optical cable and works great. However, when I try to play a Blu-Ray via PowerDVD or Windvd, it says that I'm not HDCP compliant. PowerDVD's BD Adviser gave me this log:
DEBUG_CLDetect_LCARS_2012_09_05_01_35_52.zip 3k .zip file
The problem is the entry "Video Connection Type : Digital (without HDCP)"
. Could this be due to the DVI-HDMIcable I purchased? Is there another type of DVI-HDMI converter I need to get? I know that there are different DVI ports - could this be the issue? Windows 7 does detect my Receiver as the display, but says that it is via the DVI plug, not hdmi - should this be like this?
I am trying to avoid buying a new video card as this setup should work. The only bogey here seems to be the cable, but what do I know???
