    In case anyone doesn't know, HDCP is the content protection scheme used by content providers when connecting devices via HDMI.

    I noticed that the i5 onboard video chip in the ep121 is not HDCP compliant and therefore you will not be able to play HDMI HCDP protected content via the HDMI connector :(

    Curious if anyone has any workarounds?

    Since I burn my DVD and Blurays to an ISO using AnyDVD, I have no trouble playing back any movies on my projector via mini-HDMI to HDMI.

    I highly recommend AnyDVD.

    FYI, you'll have to install ISO mounting software such as Virtual CloneDrive to mount the ISO.

    both are available from slysoft.com

    I have nothing to do with the company other than as a happy customer.
