The HDMI cable was causing "Display connected non-HDCP compliant" error message to appear.
When I reconnected my DVD to TV using regular cable with 3 color connectors(i don't know what is the proper name for that cable) that error message no longer appears on my screen and I was able to watch my movie normally.

I have a Samsung C230 LED monitor and I'm wondering if I can use it with a Roku XD/S in place of a TV via the hdmi cable?


as far as i can tell this monitor is not HDCP compliant ( High Def Copy Protection ) and therefore will not be suitable as a TV monitor. Computers can use non HDCP compliant monitors but TV Tuners, Satellite Receivers, DVD players etc with HDMI are HDCP compliant and must have a HDCP display... HDMI has two formats basically HDCP and non HDCP

What is HDCP?

HDCP stands for High-Bandwidth Digital Content Protection, a copy protection scheme to eliminate the possibility of intercepting digital data midstream between the source to the display. The format designed by Intel and licensed by Digital Content Protection, LLC using an authentication and key exchange procedure before video and audio is presented. Products compatible with the HDCP scheme such as DVD players, satellite and cable HDTV set-top-boxes, as well as few entertainment PCs requires a secure connection to a compliant display, the process often described as the handshake. Due to the increase in manufacturers employing HDCP in their equipment, it is highly recommended that any HDTV you purchase is compatible. Although most video devices support high-definition video over component output, analog connections are scheduled to phase out in the future or possibly forced to limited resolutions output.

Why is it important to me?

Although manufacturers are still making most products with at least component HD output, new generation of products like HD-DVD and Blu-Ray devices will limit the analog output resolution (Analog defined as Component or RGBHV). The highest resolutions these devices can output (720p/1080i/1080p) will be available on via the digital (DVI or HDMI) connections that employ HDCP encryption. Any new HDTV purchase should have a digital HDCP compatible input.

It is important to note that HDCP is currently not a standard used in PC monitors, and almost none of these displays have Component inputs. Although PC monitors are HDTV capable, HDCP encryption limits this type of use. If you use an HTPC and want to ensure dual use of your new flat panel display, look for HDCP compatibility.

How does it work?
A simple answer is that an HDCP session will result in the exchange of keys between the source and display device. The source device will query the display to make sure that the equipment is HDCP compliant before video is shown. Non-HDCP devices such as PC's and older model DVI products will work with any DVI compliant display, but the HDCP compliant boxes will show an image only on HDCP compliant display.
Other products affected by HDCP are scalers, switchers, and splitters (distribution amps). While these devices do no authentication for key exchange, they must be able to transmit the presence of HDCP if the video is handled (processed) in any way. Due to the two different formats of digital connections, occasional inability for proper communications may result in loss of interoperability. The newer format, HDMI was designed to be backwards compatible with DVI and in most instances, the two signal types are easily adaptable, but older devices may not always work well with in-line devices like scalers or switchers. These problems can sometimes be fixed in "firmware' although that is not always the case. Incompatibility is often displays on-screen as a snowy image or an error message.
Hope this explains it for you.

Hdcp error mesage when connected to my freeview hd box.


What is a HDCP error? Here is a real life situation that happened that could happen to you. You just bought a Blu-ray Disc Player and connected it to your older HDTV with a HDMI cable. When you tried playing a Blu-ray disc a HDCP error was shown on the screen. The movie wouldn't play.
This is a known issue with HDCP, and it's one of the biggest hassles consumers will have to deal with when utilizing a HDMI cable on their HDTV. You will get a HDCP error if you try watching HDCP encoded content when using a HDMI cable.
The problem is that if HDCP exists anywhere in the video stream then all devices and cables accessing this content must be HDCP compliant. If one device or cable isn't HDCP compliant then you get a HDCP error.
The only solution is to either replace the HDMI cable with a non-digital cable or replace the HDCP-less device. This could mean buying a new HDTV. In fact, I worked with a reader last year troubleshooting a HDCP error on his TV. What happened is that he bought a Blu-ray Disc Player and connected everything properly only to get a HDCP error. After a few emails back and forth we discovered that his HDTV wasn't HDCP compatible, which is why he got the HDCP error.
The reader ended up buying a newer HDTV with HDCP, and his Blu-ray Disc Player worked perfectly with HDMI cables.

I cannot view HD channels (from freeview HD box) through my Sony str-dh810. I've narrowed the problem down to something called HDCP. When HDCP is on, I cannot view anything from my freeview box. Turning...


This piece of information should solve your problem:

High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP) is a form of Digital Rights Management (DRM).
There is a licensing body that issues licenses for HDCP devices. Each HDCP-compliant device, like your Blu-ray player or Xbox, has a license and the ability to talk to the receiving device on the other end of the HDMI cable. The outputting device says "Hey display! Are you HDCP compliant? Here is my license, show me your license!" The display (or other HDCP compliant device) returns with "Why yes, I am legit! Here is my license!" When that process works, it happens within a thousandth of a second and you, the consumer, never even notice. You power on your Blu-ray player or DVR, it makes nice with your HDTV, and you live a happy life never knowing what HDCP even is.
if you have an older HDTV set that is not HDCP compliant then you cannot watch any HDCP compliant content on it. If you plug in your HDCP-compliant device to a non-compliant device, you'll either see a blank screen or an error message like "ERROR: NON-HDCP OUTPUT," "HDCP unauthorised," or simply "HDCP ERROR."
Short of buying a new television or giving up on your video game project the only way to deal with your HDCP compliance problem is to buy a cheap HDMI splitter that ignores HDCP requests.

HDCP compatible


There is no fix to this. basically HP did not make the HDCP very robust. It will DHCP with some DVD players, not all. HP is calling this a computer projector and down play the issue. No fix, try different DVD players. I had good luck with Toshiba HD.

Cant Play Blu Ray on my System


You say you "believe" your card is HD compliant. Maybe it is not. Check Geforce website to find out for sure. I assume, like televisions, monitors must also be HD compliant. But I don't know this for a fact. I am interested in getting that information.

PC flat screen monitor to DVD player hook-up


It appears that the monitor was designed to work with the display circuits and software driver on a Personal Computer. There is no circuitry in the display to handle the out put of DVD player. A smart TV has the circuitry. the display does not.

Hp hd dvd player for desktop wont play hd dvds


I had this problem. Turned out that I was using a DVI cable to connect my monitor to the video card, but my monitor was not HDCP compliant. Most HD-DVD's require the monitor to be HDCP compliant for digital output (i.e. over DVI or HDMI connections). Alternately, you can connect to your monitor via its analog (VGA) input instead, but you won't get HD output. I was able to do this using a VGA cable along with the VGA-DVI adapter for the video card output.

Cyberlink has a tool you can run to see if your system is capable of HD-DVD output. http://www.cyberlink.com/multi/support/bdhd_support/diagnosis.jsp
When I ran it, it gave me a red flag telling me my monitor was not HDCP compliant
