HDCP 2.2 compliance issue


Established Member
Hi all, not too sure where this post should go but decided to post here.
But here goes.. I have a Samsung q60r TV and a NAD t758v3 amp, I have just acquired a used Samsung 8500 4k player which I have plugged into the amp. On playing a 4k disc a message popped up saying something about hdcp2.2 non compliance and the disc will play in hd.
Is my equipment hdcp2.2 compliant or not or could it be the hdmi cable?
I was hoping to watch a beautiful 4k movie now I'm just racking my brains or yours :-(

Interesting one , the NAD T758V3 came on the market before HDCP 2.2 in 2011
The HDMI ports are downwards on the left side looking at the rear and originally there were 6 on an upgradeable module.

You only get Ultra HD and HDCP 2.2 by replacing this HDMI board with an upgrade module , which reduced your HDMI inputs to 3

So how many HDMI ports do you have , 3 for 6 ?
6 means no HDCP 2.2

HDCP 2.2 compliance was only introduced with the advent of HDMI version 2.0. Your receiver's current implementation of HDMI predate this. You'd need to upgrade that implimentation in order to give your receiver HDCP 2.2 compliance.

You can however use the 2 HDMI outputs on many UHD players to convey the UHD HDCP 2.2 protected video directly to a compliant display via the video HDMI output while simultaneously conveying the HD audio to a non compliant AV receiver via the player's audio HDMI output. The Samsung UBD-K8500 has 2 HDMI outputs to allow for such a configurations.
