    All,

    Is there anyway around HDCP issues I am having with a Panasonic PT-AE4000 that should be HDCP compliant and my 2010 Mac Pro with 5870 connected to it via a

    Kanex MINI DISPLAYPORT to HDMI ADAPTER and a
    Xtreme Cables 15' 1.4V HDMI CABLE

    I just get the standard HDCP display not authorized error. I am thinking about the Apple TV as an alternative, but it doesn't exactly work well with my setup and getting the audio back is going to be a bit tricky.

    I don't have any issues playing content on my 27" Cinema. Perhaps Apple wants to start making projectors next sigh.

    Thanks!

    I managed to get this working whew! What I did was try a DVI to HDMI adapter to see if that would help. It did start working with no issues with that adapter and funny enough once I moved the projector back to the Mini Displayport to HDMI adapter it kept working.

    I think once the HDCP handshake was done it was happy on either interface.
