For those of you still stressing about needing a projector which supports DVI for HDCP, this is interesting reading. Doesn't mean that they won't still push it down our throats of course. After all, DVD encryption was/is a joke also...


As predicted by myself and others, HDCP is a joke cryptographically...


Until the media people consult with the crypto people *before* creating a standard, they don't have a chance.

Forget the digital decoding that might be challenging, but the analog copying would be downright simple.


Unless they outlaw 3 gun CRT's (i.e. most RPTV) as being non-HDCP compliant devices. The user could always recover the R, G, and B signals right off of the guns.


If they consider the development of an analog HD capture card a future threat to their content, then all of the digital encryption in the world won't stop analog copying as long as three gun CRT's are around.

It certainly would seem unlikely that they would classify CRT RPTVs as not-HDCP compliant since the majority of HDTVs are (will be) CRT based for the next few years at least.


Are there any CRT RPTVs which support HDCP over DVI?
