v8.0.0 software update gives purple screen saying "HDCP unauthorised. Content disabled"

  • Channel name: Netflix, Amazon Prime, IPlayer

  • What is the issue being reported? Since the update (8.0.0 / build 4143) I get a purple screen saying "HDCP unauthorised. Content disabled" when I start up my connected systems after the roku is power on. Rebooting the Roku solves the issue but this basically means that every time I want to watch something I have to reboot the roku which is really frustrating.

  • What is the serial number of the box? 426581003173

  • What software version is the box running? 8.8.0-build 4135-04
Nice to have:

  • Code for the channel installed. - how do I find this?

  • Is the box connected to the internet via wireless or a wired connection? Gigabit ethernet

  • What type of internet service does the user have? Fiber

  • How is the box connected to the TV? HDMI to Denon X2000 receiver then receiver to HDMI splitter then HDMI splitter to projector.

  • What resolution is being used? 1080p

  • If it is a paid channel is the user a subscriber/member, and for how long? subscriber for several years
Other Information:

  • Television Make/Model? Epson 9200TW
