I'm planning on adding a blu ray or hd dvd drive to my HTPC in the future. If i purchase an HDCP compliant video card that has DVI out, is it posible for the HDCP to get lost if I use a DVI to HDMI converter to hook my PC up to my projector? I really have no way of testing this out cause i don't have blu ray or HD dvd in my PC right now, but was wondering if anyone knew if something like that is posible?

As long as the card is HDCP compliant and is an NVidia card, you are fine. Having an actual HDMI port in not a requirement. I have an 8800 GTX and an 8800 GTS, Both work perfectly for HDMI and HDCP.


There have been a number of reports of ATI cards that were supposed to be HDCP compliant not working with PowerDVD for HD. Hardware assist not working properly, etc.

I have an XFX 7950GT card connected to my TV. It's DVI out from the card into a DVI/HDMI connector and HDMI cable into the TV.


I know HDCP is being passed, since I am watching HD DVD fine. I am using the Xbox 360 add-on drive and PowerDVD 7.1.
