Connection Type Digital (without HDCP)

Here is my setup:
  • Radion HD4850 video card (XFX HD-485X-ZDFC )
  • Dell 2407WFP monitor
  • Pioneer BDR-203BK Blu-Ray burner/player
  • connected via DVI-D Dual Link cables ~27ft
Everything is HDCP capable per the manufacturer.

I have tried Total Media Theatre 3 and own PowerDVD 9 Ultra. No matter what I do, a Blu-Ray movie only plays for 10 seconds or less before stopping. PowerDVD has the BD Advisor and when I run it I receive the following error: Connection Type: Digital (without HDCP).

I was wondering if anyone has any idea how to fix this. Since everything connected is HDCP capable, I can't figure out how I am getting this incompatibility. I have also asked XFX and Cyberlink but wanted to see if anyone here has thoughts. Also, I am aware of a program called AnyDVD-HD but would like to fix this if possible.

Thanks,

Mallard27

According to Google your monitor doesn't fully support HDCP which means you can either buy a HDCP-"decrypter"-box or a new monitor to fix it.

Even though the 2407WFP is HDCP compliant, it will not allow a 1080i signal through its DVI port. This is due to the 2407WFP’s lack of a de-interlacer in the VGA/DVI ports. This holds true for earlier revisions, but I don't know if this issue was ever fixed in later revisions of this monitor.

Re: Connection Type Digital (without HDCP)

That probably isn't the issue since you don't (usually) output 1080i to a monitor
