TV hack bypasses HDCP
I just bought a new LDC TV featuring various useless things amongst which an optimized time to switch from the various HDMI inputs, also called Faster HDMI Switching. Although I did not care much about this feature because it happens to be gaining me 3 s four times a day, I tried to understand a little bit how this could work. First of all I realized that to make it happen I need to keep all my sources switched ON even if I am not using it. Argh, my PS3 has Power consumption on ~200W versus ~1W in Stand By….
Second, I opened my TV and discover that in front on the main TV chip, there is what you could call an HDMI 4 input to 1 output device. Your PS3 & BluRay are connected to the inputs and the output of this device is going to the unique input of the main TV chip. How could such simple device properly handle a complex mechanism like HDCP?
