Ok, this is a weird one...

I tried to watch my htpc yesterday passing through my new avr and it said it wasn't hdcp compatible.

I am kinda concerned by this because I was going to make the step into cablecard and don't have any idea what is going on.

8800 gts dvi to hdmi receiver with hdcp compatibility

Auzentech x-meridian (g1) for sp/dif pass through via pcm

TV is a mits wd65733..

I am guessing it's a problem that I am passing the audio through a different source and that is what is causing the hdcp error.

What should I do? New video card that passes thru audio?

Thanks,

Anthony

Since you're passing lossy audio, I wouldn't think that would cause an HDCP issue. What happens if you by-pass the avr?

It does fine..

So, my guess is that it's time to upgrade the video card. Will a gt430 do me well?

If you're going to upgrade the video card, I would bypass the sound card and feed bitstream HD audio to your avr for decoding. You can't get lossless lpcm over optical or coax. You need hdmi with a protected audio path to get lossless lpcm or to bistream TrueHD and DTS-HD MA.

Ya, my x-meridian's days are sadly numbered.. It's been a great card but I guess that comes with the territory.

I guess I'll put it on Ebay soon..
