AMD Vega3 - HDCP Error

Post by emg60060 » Sun Jan 19, 2020 11:37 am

I just ran into the HDCP error again on my HP 15-db1032nr laptop. With graphics driver version 26.20.11008.1007, all DRM channels are viewable. When updated to 26.20.11030.9002 (the HP update utility pulled it down), I get the message "Unable to play channel: HDCP required to display protected content". Rolling back the driver restores DRM channel playback.

Does anyone else experience this issue? I just retried the newer AMD video driver with 20191209/20200124b. I even tried removing and reinstalling the app per viewtopic.php?f=119&t=73175 and can still reproduce the error. Am I stuck at the current video driver?

Probably, until they fix it. It's not uncommon for one update to break it, then they'll get reports of the issue and fix it either in the next version or the version after. Happens maybe once every 12-18 months.
