Re: XR1 Lite HDCP Toggle
I have some old family VHS and just wanted to transfer them to digital format. When I played the tapes in the VCR through the RX-A1030, the movies look good on my new 65" LG 4K TV since the RX-A1030 upscaled the footages. I routed the second HDMI out to a computer monitor and it worked. So both HDMI outs have signals. I want to capture the output from the second HDMI with the XR1 Lite. I plugged the XR1 Lite to an iMac 2017. I got the HDCP lock screen in both OBS and Quicktime. I got the HDCP lock screen even when I turned off the VCR. I guess the RX-A1030 just sent an empty HDCP signal to the XR1 Lite regardless, which is really "smart." Anyhow, I downloaded the firmware update and the HDCP control tools.
Yesterday I used a Windows 10 machine to update the firmware, ran the HDCP tool to uncheck HDMI Rx HDCP Key in the XR1 Lite as shown in the picture of the OP. I did click save & exit.
After that, I plugged the XR1 Lite back to the iMac 2017, also tried with the M1 Mac Mini. I still got the HDCP lock. I have not tried with the Windows machine.
I just ordered 4 splitters to try soon, but I agree with the OP, we should be able to use the XR1 Lite (or any capture device) to capture our own stuff right out of the box.
Does the XR1 Lite under HDCP control only work in Windows?? Should I buy a Windows machine to do the job??
Thank you in advance!
PS.: I wish the genius who invented HDCP were smart enough to let people copy their own stuff.
