    I have an HDMI to DVI-D lead and tried connecting these two together. The screen image was not stable (it was on for a short time and then off for a short time). Are the two compatible (is it down to the settings)?

    Hello Bassman

    Is the DVI Input on your Dell monitor HDCP compliant?

    Apparently the monitor does not support HDCP. Is this the problem?

    Hello Bassman

    Yes - HDCP is an encryption layer that's added to the HDMI Output of your Source when the Source detects its being asked to play back a Copy Protected Disc; most Movies.

    If the Source doesn't receive the required HDCP handshake back from the Display you'll get an intermittent or no picture.

    You can either revert to an Analogue Output from your Source (SCART RGB or 3RCA 'Component') - assuming you have a compatible Input on the Display as the Analogue Output isn't affected/controlled by the HDCP encryption technology.

    Alternately you can add a 'Black Box' for around 120.00 GBP that gets rid of the HDCP encryption on the Digital (HDMI) Output of your Source.
