Hardware of software workaround for HDCP errors?
I recently purchased an Apple TV for my parents. While my Apple TV (gen1) is hacked for Saphire, Nito TV, etc. I'm going to leave their ATV (gen2) stock as they just want to rent the odd movie from iTunes and for use of their Netflix account. So, hooked everything up this weekend and as soon as I tried to access Netflix, I get a HDCP error (something along the lines of the connection not supporting HDCP). I get the same error when trying to view a rented movie from iTunes. I tried various cables, HDMI ports, etc. and nothing worked (and I confirmed that their HDMI ports all support HDCP (via HDMI v1.3). Not sure where the problem is as their other HDMI connections (Blu player) have no issues, yet when I took the ATV to my house, using same cables, I have no HDCP issues.
Anyway, point being. My parents have no issue paying for the content they want, but the HDCP issue prevents this. So, I'm wondering if anyone knows a way of getting around the HDCP check? Is there any hardware that can go between the TV and the ATV (incase it's the TV and not the ATV that's the problem) that will accept the HDCP check, then push the content (audio/video) to the TV?
I'm at a loss here.
Since the ATV only has HDMI out and their TV only has HDMI* (no DVI), the ATV is basically useless/a brick that I'll have to return unless there's some way around this.
Any suggestions would be appreciated!
*it also has VGA, component and composite, but none of these support HDCP like HDMI and DVI do.
