Yup. Well known copy protection issue.
I am having trouble getting picture when recording when the TV is off. When i record while i am watching TV it works but when i schedule the recording and the TV is off ...when i go to play the DVD, instead of seeing the program i see a box on the TV that says
"DVI ALERT Your HDTV does not support HDCP. Please use the YPrPb component to watch TV".
Although i do get audio from what i am recording.
I have a Samsung HD DLP and a Panasonic DMR-20s DVD recorder. I have IO digital cable with a HD STB.
My connections are
1. RF to STB
2. HDMI STB to TV
3. Composite red white yellow from STB to DMR-20
4. Component and Composite audio from DMR-20 to TV
I just don't get why it records fine when the TV is on but when the TV's off (Scheduled recording) i get no picture.
Its not the DVD recorder because its recording 2 hours of that stupid error box with the Audio from the program.
Any suggestions on how i can get picture ?
If the the input is not HDCP compliant or if its copy protection issues....Why does this only happen when the TV is off. It should happen all the time then.....BUT I can record all day when the tv is on but when its off then it tells me my tv is not HDCP compliant.
The recorder and the STB are doing all the work here....why does the TV's status have anything to do with the recording?
With the TV on the HDCP over HDMI is satisfied and it works. What you don't want to alert the maker to is that they left the analog outputs enabled with the HDMI working proper.
I fear that if you alerted them to this they would "fix it" by updating the firmware to disable the analog outputs when the HDMI is connected. What you have here is the infamous "analog hole" that the industry is trying to plug.
I know what you want but it doesn't match what the industry is heading towards.
