    As you have probably guessed im a complete noob when it comes to this stuff and have no clue how to set it all up, however i have been watching downloaded movies from pc to tv with no probs on this setup:

    windows display set to 1280x1024 @ 75hz (my preferred pc display) and "duplicate these displays" enabled then in ATI CCC i have my tv set to .......

    enable GPU scaling checked (have no idea why but this was checked already)
    scale image to full size panel checked (to get tv screen to look same as pc monitor)
    in this same page CCC is reporting my tv: maximum reported resolution 1920x1080 and maximum reported refresh rate @ 60Hz

    this has worked fine with what i believe a very nice picture appearing on my tv, so "why?" i hear you ask, am i asking for help ? well here is my problem:

    i recently bought a blu ray player for my pc (Samsung DVDWBD SH-B083L) when i plug my HDMI cable into my pc to watch the movie through tv the disc loads through powerdvd and plays the first few seconds and then gives me an error stating that it will not play due to some sort of copyright issue (my blu-ray movies are all legit brand new dics bought through but, if i unplug my HDMI cable then run the blu-ray movie on just pc monitor all is fine and dandy which leads me to believe that all is needed is the correct settings in CCC and windows display manager ( i hope :S)

    a little more info:

    i do game alot and some of my games wont play unless i un-plug the hdmi cable, i have run the BD Adviser tool with HDMI cable unplugged and the advisor reports all hardware/ software fully capable of bu-ray playback with no probs, when i run the advisor with HDMI cable plugged in it reports:
    "graphics driver" (8.732.1.0) as a red light (incapable)
    "HDCP- compliant Display: No (red light also)

    so what im after is some sound advise on setup/ settings and how to and not to :p plzzzzzzzz :D

    would be very grateful for your time and help and thank you in advance ;)

    The issue might be the 10.5a Beta drivers, they might not be HDCP signed or something like that, not sure?

    I would test a clean install of a full release version such as 10.4 or 10.5 and see if you get the same error. Can you also post us an image of the exact error, if not please write it out for us so we might have a better chance of finding a solution for you

    Are you using the latest BIOS on this board? Just wondering

    many thx LSD, you never cease to amaze me with your help across this forum

    they might not be HDCP signed or something like that
    now that would explain it have also tried new 10.6 drivers and was going to revert back anyways, not that impressed with how 10.5, 10.5a and 10.6 have been performing

    I sometimes just check new posts each day and don't realize where I reply, so some days I just get around to them all if I'm not too busy.

    I am not sure if my thoughts are correct or not, but it does sound possible. Did you try the official drivers yet to see if they fixed this?
