Blu Ray video disk will only display on W500 screen, not on attached screens

2010-01-02, 21:42 PM

My W500 (Win7-64bit) plays blu-ray disks perfectly on the W500's screen.   But it will not play on an attached 1600 x 1200 DVI monitor, either attached through a mini-dock, or via the DisplayPort and a DVI convertor adapter.

 

In both those cases, WinDVD 2010 (which I purchased to replace WinDVD 8 provided) says "Your display environment does not support protected content playback"  WinDVD 8 gives exactly the same message.

 

The same Blu Ray drive plays DVD's perfectly to the 1600x1200 DVI screen.

 

Anyone understand what the problem might be ?

your monitor doesn't have HDCP feature.

I was gradually coming to the same conclusion.  Many thanks for the confirmation.  I don't suppose there's any software or hardware workaround, other than a new (external) monitor ?   I assume that HDSP capabilities in another monitor will be recognised, or are there any other pre-reqs ?  By the way, what about Displayport -> HDMI ?  Is HDSP part of HDMI ?

Hello,

 

I saw your reply in this five year old thread asking about HDCP.

 

HDCP is short for High Definition Copy Protection.  It means the devices at both ends (video card, monitor) must support encrypting the signal between them in order to prevent digital copying/piracy.

 

Regards,
