Re: V6 HDCP error

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.

Re: V6 HDCP error

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

Re: V6 HDCP error

As your Denon is HDCP 2.2 compliant, the best clean solution is to get a TV or projector which is also HDCP 2.2 compliant.

Re: V6 HDCP error

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 ...

Re: V6 HDCP error

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.

Re: V6 HDCP error

I found the error went away when I changed audio output to pcm. I hope this free fix works for others. Obviously I had to connect directly to tv while changing settings!

Re: V6 HDCP error

I had the same problem.

My solution?

My equipment is  a TV6 through an Onkyo TX RZ800 receiver and a ten year old Sony TV.

Two of the Onkyo HDMI inputs are non HDCP 2.2.

I connected the TV6 box to one of those inputs and it worked a treat.

People might want to try the TV6 through a non HDCP 2.2 HDMI input
