playback device not supported play back of protect content (sometimes)

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
For some reason, I get "playback device not supported play back ofprotect content" if I start live TV in full screen but if I minimize MCE (with that message displayed) the channel comes up, then back to full screen then all is fine.

t it would also do it the other way around. Start in "Minimize mode" go to live tv same message, expand to full screen then TV comes up.

My HTPC has an HD6450 connected to my Onkyo AVR via HDMI then to my TV

Very strange, never heard of this problem before. How long are your HDMI cables?

if you can try removing the AVR from the chain and going straight from the pc to the tv, just to eliminate a potential problem. i imagine some sort of hdcp handshake could be the cause.

It does appear to be a handshake issue when you minimize WMC. Also try setting your desktop size to the same as your WMC size - 1920 x 1080 60Hz (59.94 if you can).

I had a similar issue when I upgraded my AVR to a Maratnz NR1603.

My original solution was to use optical to the AVR and HDMI straight to the TV, after exhausting every other suggestion. (tinkering with driver settings, reinstalling PlayReady, disabling pretty much everything on the AVR)

One afternoon I got bored and started tinkering, and it turned out (for reasons still unclear to me) that it was a problem with a particular HDMI input on the AVR. After I switched to a different input, everything worked fine.

I'd say it's worth a try.

That is a great idea - I know the Denon 3808CI I used to own had to have the HTPC plugged into the port closest to the HDMI OUT port for it to work.
