recently, and quite all of a sudden, I was getting HDCP errors on my TV when using ROKU 3. It was not a power cycle issue, or a cable issue, or a port issue. whatever it is is much more complicated than that. at first, a full factory reset fixed the problem, but then not too long afterwards it would come back again. a little bit of research suggested that the older TV can no longer communicate with the ROKU, which means ROKU must have updated their HDCP protocol and forced the update onto my device without my authorization. Unfortunately ROKU doesnt give you the option to forego updates. So I got a splitter. That works, except that now the AV goes out for about 5seconds at random intervals. I use the same splitter with my DVD player and this does not happen. What is very weird is that when I am watching some shows, the blackouts will occur in the exact same location in the video stream, implying that the issue is in the signal itself. Perhaps I bought a bad splitter? Perhaps the TV I have it just too old and needs to go into the garbage? This would be very unfortunate because it is a great LG TV. Any ideas about this issue? Of course Intel is to blame ultimately, but there is nothing I can do about that. I wonder how much larger the landfills are getting because of non-compatibility issues with HDCP between 'older' and new devices.
