Error: Your HDTV does not support HDCP

Applicable Products and Categories of This Article

The error message Your HDTV does not support HDCP [FIG. 1] may appear when watching LiveTV via the Windows Media Center if the cable box or set top box is connected to an HD television.

NOTE: The error message may be slightly different, depending on the type of cable box or set top box used.

To avoid this error, unplug the HDMI cable from the HDTV to continue watching LiveTV in Windows Media Center.

NOTE: Only one connection from a cable box or set top box is supported, either to the computer or to the HDTV. A connection to both at the same time is not supported.
