I recently put togather a htpc using the xfx 9300 motherboard. I'd read some good things about it and also that it was HDCP ready mean't I could hold off getting a dedicated bluray player until the price and choice got a little more reasonable.

Well I still haven't been able to watch a bluray movie via the hdmi interface. Cyberlink bluray adviser, see below

Any ideas or is it a faulty board. I'd be best to find out as soon as possible so that the retailer has no wiggle room to get out of replacing the board. This has happened to me before and I'd rather not be stung twice.

Thanks.

What have you got it connected to? From above it looks like the problem is what you have it connected to not the card itself.

Isn't there an update for PowverDVD. You have "Software Player : PowerDVD 9 9.0.1530.0" Isn't the latest verio 9.0.17xx.x"

Perhaps try that as a start.

We can assume you are using the DVI or HDMI video output to an HDCP certed monitor/TV. But on looking at the info provided "Video Connection Type : Digital (without HDCP) No" I know I am confused.
Is that

No it is not digital.
No it is digital but not HDCP compliant.
No it is ot digital or hdcp complient.

How is your monitor/TV connected?

Other option would be to download Anydvd HD trial and see if that helps.

cheers

If you go into the Nvidia driver pannel it shows the HDCP state of the connection. If that says that all is well then it looks like it might be a issue with Cyberlink. Have you checked on their forums for people having similar issues?

Hi Brown, sorry that I didn't reply to your message correctly.
The error is
video signal is digital hdmi but not hdcp compliant.

Nety The Nvidia ontrol panel says that I'm hdcp ready but I also tried
arcsoft bluray advisor and it cam =e back with the original error.
That the signal is digital but not hdcp compliant. Could the cable be letting me down
it's the only thing left that I can think of but I figure it's just carrying the signal and as
I can use it ie turn on the pc and see the desktop then it works. right

Think the setting you want to check is under the TV options. I can't confirm at the moment because I am at work but it should show you a graphical picture of the video card and TV with a cable in between. It the shows a symbol to show if hdcp is active.

It is beginning to sound like there is a issue with the mobo or cable though. Is there a different cable you can try to confirm it is not that? I guess it could also be a issue with the TV.

Where do you live? Maybe someone that lives in the same area could let you plug your PC into their TV/Cable and confirm.

Ok, I got a reply from xfx the makers of the board.
"i, thanks for your message,to me,it`s software issue which can`t collect hardware info about onboard vga. Have you tried to update display driver,here is latest 190.38 for your try, http://www.nvidia.com/object/winxp_190.38_whql.html Regards Lucky"
Now the Nvidia HDCP check informs me that the graphic card is the problem.
"your graphic card does not provide fully functional HDCP support"
I have tried different cables. A guy at Dick Smiths helped me out with that one. So that kinda just leave the board.
Now I'm wondering if the HDCP compatibility thing got changed after the board got put out. I'm reaching I know.

Just to finish this thread. I sent the board back to playtech and am now looking for another one.
One that works out of the box and does what it says it does.
