That will depend if your receiving device (monitor i presume) handles HDCP. Cheaper monitors might not.
Bearing in mind that DVI wont pass through audio like HDMI.

Does your TV do HDCP? If it doesn't the answer is no.

Please if you want to have a beatup because TCL insist on full HDCP compliance then wakeup the rest of the world had been there for some years. Its required period, no question no compromise, if you dont have gear that supports HDCP then wake up get the right stuff just as the rest of the world has for the last 5yrs or more.

Please mods close this thread, there is no need to knock the Tbox for normal commerical HD impositions that every other broadcaster on the planet must adhere to.

I agree with cyril7... you are required to have display device that support HDCP. All BluRay players and HDMI devices out there have it!.

Lock this useless topic.

To be fair the OP might not have been attempting an attack on HDCP, its probably an innocent question, especially regarding DVI.

Everything said about HDCP is true, im just saying give the OP benefit of the doubt

It seemed an innocent enough question - dont beat the guy (or girl) up.
Jeez - what grumpy sods!

No worries cyril. Just hoping Monday's install won't turn into a massive anticlimax.

It might be worth pointing out that not having an HDCP-compliant HDMI TV doesn't preclude you from getting a T-Box.  The box has RCA outputs as well so the HD channels like TV1, 2 & 3 are still viewable (I checked).
