Comment from Admin.

I will seek the advice of my expert in this but offer the following comment in the interim.

1. HDCP is a protocol to ensure security between the DVI/HDMI port on the STB (of equivalent) and the related port of the device (such as the monitor) receiving the data. Thus non-HDCP devices will not receive data, but HDCP does not itself restrict the use of data in valid devices.

2. The rules for HDTV broadcasting in Canada are actually set by Industry Canada (technical ones) and the CRTC (programming ones.) CDTV makes recommendations to both, on behalf of its members and the industry. Currently, CDTV is recommending to the authorities that all DTV transmissions carry a minimum set of PSIP and that the Broadcast Flag be implemented to protect the broadcast content form further unauthorized broadcasting, while respecting the individual users rights to view it. Their may be some discussion here, as the Copyright laws in the USA and in Canada are somewhat different, but Canadian broadcasters certainly support the principle of restricting the unauthorized use of content for further disrtribution.

Watch this space for further news.

HDCP Recording

Will the encoding make it impossible to record tv movies/programs?

Comment from Admin.

No, HDCP protects the program data between HDCP compliant devices and does not prevent appropriate recording. The Broadcast Flag in the SI and PSIP data of the program stream is to prevent unauthorized re-broadcasting of the program content but does not affect personal uses.
