We’ve just posted the following news: Is the HDCP 2.2 copy protection broken by movie pirates?[newsimage]http://static.myce.com//images_posts/2015/04/myce-aacs-2.0-hdcp-95x75.png[/newsimage]

Pirated copies of Breaking Bad in 4K have appeared on torrent sites. It appears the pirates have found a way to circumvent the HDCP 2.2 copy protection that protects Netflix’s 4K streams.

Nope, they just used a hdmi capture card. Just like oldschool mpeg2 cards. Nothing broken about it.

Please tell us which devices play back UHD Netflix streams and output them from the HDMI 2.0 port. I’ve only seen support for UHD Netflix built into UHD TVs.

Second, if such devices exist, the HDMI output is encrypted and protected by HDCP 2.2 which means a HDMI capture card isn’t going to work. Hence the topic.

I didn’t say playback device, I said capture card. I’m not up to par with current development but I do know hauppauge creates such.

What are you going to hook the capture card up to?

AFAIK, the Nvidia Shield box is the only stand alone device that supports UHD Netflix. Everything else with UHD Netflix support are TVs with it built into them. TVs don’t have a HDMI output that you can connect to a HDMI capture card. The Nvidia shield box has HDMI 2.0 with HDCP 2.2. HDMI capture cards won’t capture anything with HDCP. So your theory doesn’t work unless people have figured out a way to strip / crack HDCP 2.2.

Is this anti-copying technology broken by pirates? Have most/all DRM technologies been broken in the past? Does Elmer J. Fudd have problems pronouncing his R’s (“you pesky wabbit!”)?

Which one of those products can record HDMI with HDCP encryption? I see things like this for the various product listings. “If you have an un-encrypted HDMI video source, such as a digital SLR, you can record directly from this source.” Or “Note: HD PVR 2 will not record video from HDMI with HDCP copy protection.”

This looks like the updated version. http://www.amazon.com/ViewHD-Ultra-Powered-Splitter-Model/dp/B00J4D3RTU/ref=cm_cr_pr_product_top?ie=UTF8

Yes, HDCP 2.2 appears to be broken or otherwise defeated. Shortly before the first 2160p pirate releases, HDFury announced their HDCP 2.2 stripper. Definitely not a coincidence. Others have since been announced.

I don’t know the technical details of how they are doing it. But it is pretty crazy that it has happened so soon into the commercial life of 2.2, even before the launch of UHD BD. I guess Intel did a crappy job of fixing the weaknesses.

If PTP decryption is tough-to-likely-impossible, since their methods aren’t being disclosed, why is it less likely that there’s not a root-compromised smart TV with AV channel recording override capacity? If so, there’s never going to be a DRM or HDCP version that will protect content until kernel’s are secured which is never happening either because Intel doesn’t control the world of technology & media, truly, like it respectfully pretends.
