Or does HDCP come along and bugger it up?

If the signal is HDCP encrypted ......
Does the 989 really apply HDCP to standard definition HDMI outputs?

I wasn't sure about that and didn't have time to read the manual.......

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.

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'.

I thought that Holywood was insisting that DVD player manufacturers enabled HDCP on upscaled digital images, ie DVI and HDMI. I have no knowledge of whether this is insisted for digital output as encoded on the disc, ie 480i or 576i, but I presumed not.

If your right then I've seriously got the wrong end of the stick.

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.

That's really depressing :(
Does that mean that if I upgrade to a PHD8 for 1:1 pixel mapping then my 868 will be reduced to component out?

Sorry to be a pain, but is the above statement true?
