HDCP Required For Xbox 360 HD Netflix Streaming
October 30, 2008 by Tyler Pruitt

The copy protection police have struck again. The new HD Netflix streaming service on the Xbox 360 requires an HDCP compatible display device. If you try play a movie while not connected to an HDCP compatible display, you will get the “Secure HDCP Link Not Found” error.

For all the people that have a non-HDCP LCD monitors hooked up via DVI to their Xbox 360, you are SOL. What is not clear is whether your resolution be limited to 480p if you have an older Xbox 360 with only component outputs.

This situation kind of mirrors the DVD upscaling issue with the Xbox 360, with the work around being use the VGA adapter in order to get DVD upscaling via analog outputs.

What is Netflix worried about? Who in their right mind would waste their time capturing HD Netflix movies via HDMI? Answer, Nobody!

I sure hope Mike Morel has an Elite or other HDMI capable 360.. Otherwise there will most likely be some tears shed this morning...

Hopefully Netflix will roll this service out to other products soon that support HDMI out of the box (assuming you have an HDTV with HDMI ports).

Not correct. You can play back Blu-ray in 720p or 1080i over analog component, provided the disc doesn't have the ICT flag activated. And studios are holding off implementing ICT.

Pretty sure he has had his before HDMI became standard. Maybe thats why he hasn't commented yet.

Looks like he will be getting burned not once, but twice!

So sad....

Doesn't the VGA cable bypass HDCP, though? So what's the real issue here? Buy a VGA cable if you have a 1st gen system and get on with life.

Very few TVs have a VGA input for one thing.
