HDTV Hack – How to Hack HDCP!

Here’s some great news for all of you who have bought new HDTVs equipped with HDCP.   I guess it only takes some soldering to bypass the HDCP switch.  WOW, the engineers who thought of HDCP are really stupid, really…

[GRitchie] found that his new TV with “InstaPort” Fast HDMI Switching didn’t perform this re-encryption step between the set’s internal switcher and the next stage in decoding. Soldering just eight wires directly from the switching chip’s output to an HDMI cable provided an unencrypted output that could then be received by a PC for later replay.
