Googling for Sky Q HDCP does indeed bring up what look like similar issues. I think it's an industry-wide problem. It does seem a bit odd that these devices are capable of downgrading their own HDCP on demand, so all a pirate would have to do is make sure their illicit disk ripping device is not an HDCP 2.2 compliant one so that the V6 switches to a less secure mode, or else buy a black box off Amazon for £9.99, then they are back in business.
My 2014 Yamaha RX-V777 appears not to be HDCP 2.2 compliant and my 2009 Loewe TV certainly isn't, but it all works fine for a couple of weeks at a time and then goes blank. What seems to work is switching to a different input every couple of weeks. I'm not sure what will happen when I eventually upgrade the TV.
Not sure this is entirely correct ... virgin need to allow all It’s non 4k content to be pushed thru a 4k amp/receiver and into a non 4k tv or projector. The v6 box allows me to push non 4k channels direct to a non 4k tv but not thru an amp (Denon in my case)..... Virgin, pls get your act together and help out all of us who have 5.1 surround sound etc
Agreed, but I think the point being made is that 100% of my usage is non 4k - Virgin have as a result of the v6, made my not inconsiderable ££ system useless for what I used before, use now and will use until such time as I want or think 4k is worth the investment. I haven’t asked for 4k functionality but am being forced to take it, rendering the hardware I have as incompatible ...
Unless your Denon has a non-HDCP 2.2 port, consider getting an AVR which does not support HDCP 2.2. I have such a setup with both my 1080p plasma TV and Onkyo AVR being HDCP 1.4 compliant, and my V6 handshakes with them.
