    Hi,

    I recently brought a Humax Freesat HD recorder which has currently been returned for full refund before the 14 day money back was up (great box btw).

    The issue I had on the box was a HDCP handshake between the boxes hdmi port and the DVi port on my TV. The signal would cut out every 2 seconds to a blank/static image.

    Since returning the box I have done some research into this issue and believe that my TV is at fault. I do not have any issues with a PC / PS3 or 360 connected via DVi only the Humax recorder.

    Now I have read ppl have also experienced the same problem on Sky HD boxes with verity of other makes/models of HD TV's.

    I now have my hands on a hdmi to HD component cable and was wondering if i purchased the box again, will it bypass the HDCP issue that it has on through DVi?

    Ppl have reported hooking component to component on Sky HD and find it solves the prob? But with it being hmdi to component I am unsure if it will work?

    Thanks :thumbsup:
