    Thinking of getting a Pioneer 868 (and HDMI/DVI adaptor) but no idea if the HS10 accepts a HDCP signal?

    Cheers

    did anyone ever get a definite answer to this question?
    ie:did they actually get an hs10 to work with the pioneer 868 dvd player via hdmi-dvi connection?
    really anxious to know as i am considering purchasing the pioneer 868 dvd player to go with my hs10 and want to use the full capabilities of the dvd player.
    many many thanks in advance

    Hi Guy:
    I don't think HS10 accepts the HDPC DVI connection.

    again,i get conflicting answers.
    boy this is hard.
    i just dont want to make the mistake of purchasing an expensive dvd player only to find it wont do what i want it to do.
    :(
    is there a cheaper dvi alternative that will give me just as good results but will definately work with the hs10???

    right,i've done some searching and came across this paragraph:

    VPL-HS10 CINEZA LCD Front Projector
    The Sony VPL-HS10 offers brilliant performance and can be used on a tabletop or ceiling mounted for screen size of 40- to 300-inches. It incorporates a Wide XGA LCD panel with 1366 x 768 resolution, 1200 ANSI lumens and a 700:1 contrast ratio.

    In addition to its outstanding contrast ratio, the VPL-HS10 projector incorporates CineMotion reverse 3:2 pull-down technology, and a DVI-HDTV connection that enables copy-protected, high-definition video content to be delivered from a DVI/HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection) compatible set-top box, such as Sony's SAT-HD200 HD/DIRECTV receiver.

    so,am i now understanding this correctly in thinking the hs-10 is hdcp compliant????
    i really do hope so....

    You're right that It's DVI/HDCP compliant, which means that an HDMI-equipped DVD player SHOULD be able to talk to it. If you take a look at that link I posted you'll see that not all cases of HDMI->DVI/HDCP work, though as I noted before someone posted there to say the 868 did work with the HS10.

    It'd be interesting to know what information martinsurround has that makes him think it doesn't.

    oh well,i guess i'll soon see.
    i've decided to take the plunge anyway as i'll be upgrading the hs10 within a year anyway.
    if it don't work i'll just resort to using component.
    thanks anyway.
    now got fingers and legs crossed

    IIRC there were problems with early HS10s & HDCP compliance. Sony fitted replacement boards to affected HS10s.........

    Think it was detailed in a Sony service update (.pdf) which I may have saved somewhere.

    Will have a search for it.

    well,a few months back i made the purchase of a pioneer 868 hdmi dvd player and connected it the hs10 and true enough my hs10 was hdcp enabled as i had a mighty fine picture displayed from my hs10....
    since then though i've moved on to purchase the hs50 but i just thought i'd post my findings here to help some people out as i've had a few pm's now asking if i had any success.
    hope this helps people out.
    by the way,this is only my experience in the matter so please dont assume all hs10's are ok just on my findings.
    all the best
    paul
