Or does HDCP come along and bugger it up?
I'm sure your probably right, but that wasn't my understanding regarding HDCP and DVD. HDCP is a new thing and so I don't see how it could be 'on the disc'.Gordon @ Convergent AV said:HDCP has nothing to do wth whether the output is upscaled or not. It's to do with whether there is copy protection on the disc. If it's a protected disc then HDCP is applied...on any HDCP compliant device.
That's really depressingNic Rhodes said:It is not on the disc, HDCP is added. The HDMI rules say the player will protect the output (with HDCP) when it detects copy protection. So if it detects something like macrovision, (copy protectopn of yesteryear), which is on most discs, the it will automatically apply HDCP as G has indicated for HDMI output. It has nothing to do with resolution, witness Arcam 480p / 576p.
