I just spent over an hour trying to fix an HDCP 2.2 error.
Roku Ultra connected to a Samsung 50" 4K TV.
Tried to view a 4K video on the “4K Spotlight” channel, “view from YouTube”… then get a screen telling me I can’t view 4K because I’m not HDCP 2.2 … huh?
I swear this worked before on the Roku. Turn stuff off. Unplug stuff, Re-plug stuff in… thinking it was a handshake issue. Nope. Still no HDCP 2.2.
Then it dawns on me… I rewired my entertainment center. I moved stuff around. I plugged the Roku into HDMI 1 because I wanted it first on the list of input sources after “TV” (the antenna connection).
Get out the TV manual… ok… pull it up on computer screen because I’m not sure anyone actually prints stuff any more…
Turns out my 4K TV has only ONE out of the 4 HDMI inputs able to do HDCP 2.2. And it’s not labeled “HDCP 2.2” it’s just labeled “HDMI (MHL)”… whatever the heck that means.
Turn stuff off, unplug stuff, rearrange HDMI-connected devices… right now just Apple TV and the Roku Ultra… turn stuff back on, have the Roku recheck the Display… 4K available. HDCP 2.2 compliant.
Now… it makes me scratch my head and wonder why they’d build a 4K TV with HDMI 4 inputs and 3 of them are incapable of supporting 4K.
Whatever… working again. Lesson learned. But that’s how I spent my afternoon… while my wife was mowing
