I have a (Toshiba 52hm84 DLP) I use a Motorola HD/DVR from Comcast. When I hookup the cable box to the TV using HDMI to HDMI, I error message; (HDMI Component has been compromised) then the screen goes green. I’ve hooked the same box up to my Samsung LCD using the HDMI to HDMI and it works great. Comcast has sent out a service technician and checked the box and tried other boxes but nothing seems to work.

This is a wild guess, but I believe that you are being **** by the movie industry. The HDMI protocol includes a form of DRM (Digital Rights Management) for high resolution content called: High Bandwidth Digital Content Protection Basically this means that the media (disk or broadcast) instructs the player (in your case the cable box) to insist that any downstream devices (your TV) is industry and DRM compliant. Specifically this evil protection scheme is designed to plug the analog hole and make it impossible for you to record or copy the movie by using an analog output from your TV. This even restricts the size of the TV you can play the movie on, thus preventing pubs and bars from displaying the content on big screen TVs without paying royalties. The message means that the manufacturer of your TV has refused to toe the industry line. 1984 Anyone ? Martin

    There is no way to bypass DRM at the hardware level,
    if the CableBox/DVR is industry compliant and the TV
    is not:

    1) The broadcaster determines if the content is protected,
    and sets the protection bits within the digital broadcast,
    indicating the desired level of protection.

    The broadcast itself is encrypted, and contains a list
    of "Authorized Receivers" which are allowed to decrypt
    the movie.

    All receiver manufactures are required to sign a contract
    with the movie industry in order to receive specific decryption
    keys, which are embedded within the receiver's hardware/
    firmware.

    If a receiver manufacturer does not toe the line, the movie
    industry/broadcaster will invalidate the keys for that receiver
    model/manufacturer in all new programming.

    2) The fact that the cable/box/DVR claims that the TV has
    been compromised, tells me that the TV's license has
    been revoked, probably due to an analog output, but I am
    just guessing here.

    3) Goal of the movie industry is ABSOLUTE control, so that
    they can charge you an arbitrary sum of money, for every
    minute of entertainment.

    With the phasing out of analog TV's they can do this !!!!

    No analog signal at the RF-stage, no analog outputs of
    any kind, no CRT, no analog signal to splice into anywhere
    within the television set ... etc.

    only digitally encrypted garbage from ---hole to breakfast.

    (The next step is digitally encrypted speakers, and industry
    approved cameras and microphones, which recognize a
    subliminal protection pattern, called "RAINDROPS" in the
    video or audio, such that you cannot record the program.)

    After that, they will be implanting digital encryption chips
    inside you ears an eyeballs to make sure they
    get maximum revenue.

    Aaargh !!!

    =======================

    4) In the short term,you CAN:

    a) Try to use the analog (component Video) outputs from
    the cable box to the TV, to see if the broadcaster has
    disabled, degraded or left them alone. Remember the
    "Broadcaster" tells your cable box what to do and when.

    The analog outputs have no provisions for DRM,
    (except for MACROVISION's sync degradation
    designed to confuse VCRs)

    That's why the broadcasters want to disable them.

    b) Scream at the TV's manufacturer for a new TV or a
    firmware upgrade.

    c) Search the net for decryption boxes and cheat codes,
    many computer programs exist for decrypting DVD's
    and even blue-ray disks, but I am not sure if there are
    any HDMI cracks/boxes out there.

    d) Read www.wikipedia,org on DRM, HDMI and copy protection,
    follow all the links and get informed.


    5) In the long term:

    a) Write to your congress thing, and demand fair use legislation.

    b) Refuse to by HDMI only devices or devices that disable
    analog outputs.

    c) Refuse to buy blue-ray players or movies.


    That is the limit of my knowledge,

    Martin

I have run into this issue alot. I believe its because of a older version of HDMI 1.1. Quick solution is to hookup the cable box with component cables(yprpb) to utilize the HD picture still and then do some research to see if Mitsubishi has a firmware update on your particular model.
