Question about Toshiba TheaterWide 52HM84 52" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television
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
