    I am in the market for an LCD screen. Having done a bit of research I have noticed that the two screens I was looking at (Toshiba 27WL46P and Goodmans LD3201) have DVI inputs but these are not HDCP compliant. Does this mean they won't be able to handle HD images from SKY when it starts broadcasting / DVI images from my DVD player? I understand that HDCP is an encryption system and that most dvds employ HDCP. Are there any (reasonably priced!) LCD screens that have DVI / HDMI inputs that are HDCP compliant?

    Thanks

    Dexter

    To answer your main question first. If it isn't HDCP compliant you will only be able to view non Copy Protected broadcasts, of which, it is expected, there will be some. But it would be ill advised to buy an LCD without it.

    Refer to another thread on this forum for HDMI/DVI/HDCP compliant LCD's. -'HDTV LCD's'.

    My budget set has a slot at the back which has HDTV - does that mean HDTV will work with it?

    Surely not, it was only 300 quid!
