    HDMI is HDCP compliant as standard. DVI on the other hand can be either compliant or not.

    In order to view any HDCP material you will need HDCP compliant connections all the way from a STB to the screen.

    Actually, HDCP compliance is NOT mandatory in the HDMI standard documentations, it's only "strongly suggested".

    It appears however that most, if not all, manufacturers that include HDMI in their products have made sure it's also HDCP compliant.

    Therefore "HDMI means HDCP compliant", although not technically accurate, is a good representation of today's commercially available products (LCDs, plasmas, DVD players, ...).

    Older AV equipment, such as DVD players, screens and projectors have non-HDCP DVI connectors. Nearly all DVI computer screens and graphics cards are not HDCP.
