Does the Roku Ultra need HDCP 2.2?

Simple question does the Roku Ultra need HDCP 2.2 in order to work? In other words if you TV or HDMI selector doesn't support HDCP 2.2 will the Roku Ultra work?

No, I have my Ultra 4640 connected to both an older Pansonic plasma and Yamaha AVR, both only HDMI 1.4. While I'm not certain what HDCP version they have, I know it's not 2.2, as that's necessary for 4K, which neither device supports. I have no issues at all with any channel, but I don't use Netflix so can't say about that one.

I kinda figured such. Also my HDMI selector says it supports HCCP 1.2 but when I look on my Roku for what type of connection its using it says HDCP 1.4, so maybe its compatible with HDCP 2.2 as well. Smiley Happy
