Hi, I am trying to playback Bluray on my PC, my set up is

2.2 Ghz dual core Windows 7 PC,
with LG BD-Rom drive,
a Radeon X1650 graphics card,
connected with DVI to an Acer H223HQ,
using Cyberlink PowerDVD 9.

The graphics card, according to ATI is HDCP ready
The monitor is high definition and also supports HDCP

When I run the Cyberlink Bluray adviser, all components check out okay, except the display, which says 'Digital (no HDCP)' When I play a disc I get the message that the display does not support HDCP.

I am able to playback Bluray on another PC, with a similar BD drive, the same software, to the same monitor, with the same cable, but just a newer graphics card

Note, I am not looking to bypass HDCP by using an analogue VGA connection, I would really like to get HDCP working as all the hardware and software supports it in theory, I don't know what could be the missing factor.

Here's your key leehanken,>> am able to playback Bluray on another PC, with a similar BD drive, the same software, to the same monitor, with the same cable,>> but just a newer graphics card<<<
Your card is the key, maybe the drivers is not right.
unfortunately Cyberlink's advisor wont say your graphics card doesnt meet it but with this Bluray get the latest and the best only, I always feel it's a scam to make you pay more.
What graphics card do I need to play Blu-ray/Blu-ray 3D Disc and TrueTheater 3D on my computer?

Also try using a different media player. Download CCCP codec pack and install it. You will then have Media Player Classic installed. Try that.

Yes, it would seem the video isn't up to it, even with the latest drivers.

With regards to Bluray, aside from the high definition the main reason for Bluray is how the image is written to the disc, it is cross written so many times the laser has to use specialised cues to find the actual IFO and bup files ie headers, the main reason for this was to prevent copying.
If you explore a Bluray disc verses a standard DVD,
A standard Blu-Ray disc holds 27GB (gigabytes) of information which is about 40 times the amount of data that a CD can hold.
