Default HDMI and Blue-ray

I have had this wonderfull laptop for a long while now. It has the ability to play blue-ray videos, but I havn't had any blue-ray discs yet. That was untill yesterday where I bought 1408. I go home full of exiectment of this wonder I have in my bag.

Apart from playing blue-ray my computer also got an HDMI plug, and my TV just so happens to have an HDMI I can use. So natrually when I wanted to see the movie I wanted to see it on my TV rather then my computer, but for some reason it said something along the line of "the content is protected" and that I therefore couldn't watch the movie.

However, when I unplug the HDMI and just watch the movie on my PC I can watch it as easly as though it were a DVD.

Does anyone have a guess on what is wrong?

I think it's the e in blue ray. It's probably and HDCP issue. Either your computer is older and does not have the right Hardware/software or you TV is causing the issue. I may be totally wrong I guess we'll see if anyone else chimes in on your BLU RAY issue.

possibly the pc or television isn't hdcp compliant? just a thought right off the top of my head and i could be wrong.

You must turn off your laptop monitor and only watch from the TV - HDCP thinks that you are attempting to copy the film when it detects simo monitors. This is a part of HDCP - I work in IT and we come across this alot with laptops. Disable the laptop monitor and let the TV be the primary monitor when watching BD movies. Both of your systems (laptop and TV are compliant).
