Since I replaced my old Sony receiver with this new Yamaha RX-V867 I have been getting HDCP errors. When I try to play a Blu-Ray, it plays about 20 seconds of choppy video and then throws the error. If I rip the Blu-Ray, it plays fine because it is no longer encrypted. In Media Center I sometimes get the HDCP error watching live TV. I can get around that by minimizing WMC and maximizing it. If I bypass the receiver I no longer have these errors. I have the latest Intel video drivers for my Sandy Bridge HTPC. I even bought a HDMI Detective hopeing it would resolve the problem. It didn't. I have tried all kind of settings on the receiver, but no luck so far. You can see the different connection configurations I have tried below. Do you think it is a bad receiver or am I just out of luck with this combo?

The tech had me try using a standalone blu-ray player in the same HDMI port. It worked fine. I next tried my HTPC in all HDMI ports. I found out that ports 3 and 4 worked without error. Ports 1, 2 and 5 still give the HDCP error. I am ok with this as long as something doesn't happen to port 3 and 4.
