HDCP Bypass?


I have my Roku 1 connected to a monitor via HDMI to DVI and whenever I open an app, such as YouTube, the screen goes purple as aN effect of HDCP. Is there a way I can bypass this and just get normal HD video on my monitor?

Re: HDCP Bypass?

HCDP (High-definition Copy Data Protection) is something added to the HDMI specs by the movie/tv industry to prevent making exact digital copies of content.  Both ends of the HDMI connection must support the HDCP specs or the video won't be transmitted.  Few monitors will support HDCP.  You may be able to run your HDMI video through an HDMI adaptor or splitter that provides HDCP support.
