View Full Version : HDCP query

Was wondering, is HDCP a setting you have to activate or is it a passive protocol that is activated once an HDCP compliant graphics card is hooked up to an HDCP monitor?

And is there a big fuss for HDCP? Or is it another load of marketing bollocks?

isn't HDCP just used to play Blue-ray and HD-DVD movies on your pc? High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection right?? Its nothing special.

HDCP and the Image Constraint Token isn't active in any movies yet as far as I know, but all PC software used for HD-DVD and Blu-Ray playback requires it regardless.

It's just DRM.
