Can anyone else confirm this? So far not even upper tier techs from the Nvidia exclusive partner EVGA can be sure of why the 660 Ti I tried had the Nvidia Control Panel showing my Panasonic TC-L32U3 as not HDCP capable, when my GTS 250 always has it showing as HDCP capable.
It's frustrating talking to even EVGA's upper tier techs. They'll say things like the version of HDMI cable or length of it (even though I said it was only 8') might cause such problems, but I'm pretty such HDCP detection has nothing to do with HDMI cables, but rather an Intel chip in the device connected. He also said it could have something to do with EDID information being shared.
This has me paranoid of trying any other 600 series Nvidia based GPUs with this TV, and I'm not sure I want to take a chance on a 7950, esp with the state of AMD lately.
Here's a screenshot of a test with an app the EVGA tech suggested trying. It's mainly designed to check for Blu-ray playback capability, which checks for a BD capable software player and BD drive, but it also checks your display for HDCP capability. The test at the bottom clearly shows my display as passing.
Yet why then would that card when in my system boot up and switch inputs fine on my friend's Dynex TV?
