    VIP 211; 890 HDCP error message; no dvr connected

    Trying to tune HBO channel (302), error 890 popped up. Directed to Menu 6-1-3, page 2...showed...Digital Connection: Yes, HDCP: No (with no way to change it).

    The 211 is connected to a MonoPrice HDMI switch box (HDX-420X), then to the tv.

    Troubleshooting on my own...I took the HDMI cable out of the HDX-420X and connected it directly to the tv...rechecked menu 613 page 2, and HDCP read YES.



    I then plugged the 211 back into the HDX-420X where it was before and everything is functioning OK.

    Glitch and solution!

    Last week was the 1st time I'd seen the 890 error message. It had me stumped, so I guessed and stumbled across a fix...that's worked so far

    I was a little surprised to see the error message on an HBO channel...I thought it would be more appropriate on a PPV purchase (which I seldom do), but it's probably the same.
