[RESOLVED] Decoding HDMI with HDCP copy protection from cable boxes

Post by doug4350 » Thu Apr 25, 2019 4:31 pm

Do the decoders remove this on the Rx channel, and if so, is there any additional steps or tricks from what is described on the Wiki HDMI Receive section?

I haven't tried it yet, but have a use case for processing raw frames from cable tv and other copy protected media as one of the video sources.

Thanks in advance,
- Doug

Hi Doug,

The STiH418 does support HDCP on both the RX and TX, the TX can be enabled if you have HDCP keys, and an HDCP license.

HDCP RX however requires a different sales type with RX enabled, and is not enabled on the 4Kopen board (for obvious reasons).

Cheers
Pete
