Re: HDCP Problem with V6

As long as the receiver supports HDCP 2.2 (which anything that supports 4K passthrough should) you will be fine.

Re: HDCP Problem with V6

Actually, thinking about it, you might be better off setting the V6 to output at 1080p, rather than 4K, so the receiver would not have to do any downscaling.

Re: HDCP Problem with V6

It's a 2013 model so not sure if it would support HDCP 2.2 but with not having a 4k TV or material then it would probably be best setting it to 1080p anyway. Need to upgrade the TV and receiver in a few years anyway ready for the Playstation 5.

Re: HDCP Problem with V6

Hi guys!

Had v6 installed but it's starting to grind my gears as it's not playing with rest of my gear...

V6 into Denon avr-2200 out putting to 2015 sony tv

I get the HDCP 2.2 error... Not even trying 4k as tv doesn't have it.

Followed the guidance re splitter between v6 and amp and can get it to work with some playing with connections.

But it doesn't play the next time you switch it all back on.

Amp set to pass thru signals to tv and v6 selected to only use 1080p nothing higher.

What am I missing? It's like box telling my amp 4k and my tv saying can't do it... Is there any other settings I should check?

Thanks in advance!

Mat

Re: HDCP Problem with V6

Hi

I work in the AV industry, I'm not here to sell anything but wanted to try and help

The 4K Sky and Virgin new units both have HDCP2.2 so a lot of kit that was released before this was standardised won't have this, so this will throw up some of the issues you are all having.

There are a couple of things you need to consider, if you are splitting your Virgin both around the house and have 1080p Tv's these won't show any picture if you are outputting 4K.

Products like the CYP SY-4KS-4K22 Scaler

http://www.cypeurope.com/store/store/app/product/SY-4KS-4K22/HDMI-4K-Scaler-with-Dual-outputs-%26-HD...

let you get around problems like having a pre HDCP2.2 amp, you put this unit on the output of the Virgin, 1 output goes to your new 4K tv, the other output will not only scale down to 1080P if you need it also makes the HDCP backwards compatible.

If you have a 4K TV that is pre HDCP2.2 you can use the CYP XA-HDCP which basically goes between the virgin box and your TV, this will make the HDCP backwards compatible as well.

hope this is clear and helps?

Re: HDCP Problem with V6

I'm not sure about this.

My TV, a 4k Samsung 55UE8500 has HDCP 2.2 and my amp, an Onkyo TX-NR555 also supports HDCP 2.2 - was working just fine until the latest v6 firmware update. At which point I lost video, only had audio. Only way I could get it back was by connecting the v6 into a non-HDCP2.2 HDMI input on my amp. Prior to this it was working fine since December.

Cant help thinking VM have broken something with the latest update. Or I was lucky for a few months?!?!?
