- Does this product support HDCP?
High-bandwidth Digital Copy Protection (HDCP) may or may not be on the HDMI signal of your source. There should be no issues to view content even though you may be recording the content through a DVD recorder. However, the recorded content may be very bad when you play it back.
We tested it recording content from the Apple TV and initially there were no issues playing back the video; however we noticed that occasionally the recorded video was interrupted and became highly pixelated, broken up and the audio was also interrupted, making the recorded video impossible to view. We are not sure if it's due to the HDCP or the DVD was scratched to begin with.
We also tested it with a Chromecast and the audio and video pass-through to the TV without any issue while connected through a DVD recorder, however, the playback of recorded YouTube videos was terrible.- Does this product change the aspect ratio?
This device maintains the aspect ratio of the original signal. Aspect ratio are usually 16:9 for widescreen and 4:3 for "square"We noticed that some Netflix videos were recorded at "full screen" and some had black vertical bars on the sides - this is due to the fact that the video from Netflix was not at 16:9 aspect ratio.- Does this product work with computers?
Yes, some computers that have HDMI output may require you to set up an "external monitor" as opposed to an "HDMI monitor" in order to enable the HDMI output from the computer using this box. You can set up an "external monitor" in the display settings of the graphics card.- What are the resolutions supported?
