    I'm trying to set up a Panasonic BTT590 Home Cinema system with my Apple TV. However, when I connect my ATV to the HDMI input on the Panasonic Bluray player (to get surround sound) and then the BluRay to the TV I get this error;
    "This content requires HDCP for playback"

    Any suggestions? I cant connect with an optical cable as there is only 1 input on the blu ray player and I am using it with my Sky+HD box.

    Does anyone know if its a settings issue?

    1. Make sure the BTT590 is updated with the latest firmware.

    2. Does the problem occur with both the input HDMI ports on the BTT590?

    3. Check both the HDMI cables, the one from the ATV to the BTT590 and the one from the BT590 to the TV by using each one in turn to connect the ATV direct to the TV.

    Failing all that, can't you connect the ATV using optical and pass the audio for the Sky box over HDMI?
