SOMEPROGRAMS WILL NOT PLAY, ONLY AUDIO. iT SHOWS "HDCP UN AUTHORIZED, CONTENT DISABLED"


HDCP High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection, requires uninterrupted transmission through your HDMI or DVI lead. It is to ensure you don't try to intercept copyrighted material and copy it before it reaches your TV. Check your leads are correctly fitted and are good quality.

I am getting 'HDCP unauthorized content disabled '


You are playing content over an HDMI cable that contains a copy blocking system. This is the reason that manufactures pushed HDMI systems instead of DVI. Digital content protection was the whole purpose.

How do I fix this?


This is a DRM error. The movie industry put copy protection into your tv. If you put a device that doesn't support it the copy protection it will disable features.. Solution take the tv back and get one without hdcp.

When trhing to watch Netflix I get an error message"this content requires HDCP for playback" on my LC320EMX


HDCP- High bandwith digital content protection is something that would be built into your tv. it prevents you from copying programs to another device. You have two options- one use a different type of cables like say rca red-white-yellow cables or for hd video. component blue green red cables and red and white cables for sound

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.
