Can't you reset the resolution and disable hdcp on the ps pro?

HDCP is designed to be end to end so a converter is supposed to be impossible... That's not to say it can't be done, but as the PlayStation firmware is updated I wouldn't want to rely on a solution working too long...

it sounds like your display is just not hdcp compliant at all so i dont think any 'converter' is likely to help

i thought hdcp was meant to be backwards compatible so would run on the lowest common version between the 2 devices, assuming they are both compliant of course? happy to be corrected, though.

hmm I guess I don't know a lot about this only that I bought this 4k monitor and a 4k tv, and the ps identifies hdcp 2.2 straight away on TV and displays 4k, whereas on the monitor it shows 1.4 and locks out higher resolutions.

does this mean I'll never be able to get 4k while using this monitor with my ps pro?

Hdcp is copyright protection tech for uhd, why would the lack of that stop you outputting 4K to a tv from your ps pro? E.g. I have one hdmi input that is hdcp 2.2 compliant yet I've got my pc hooked in to a different port running 4K with no issues. Are Sony requiring hdcp to output 4K? Cause that's **** insane given that the ps pro doesn't have a bdxl drive....

I have an older 4k TV from 2014 which has 4 HDMI ports. One is HDCP 2.2 compatible, and another one is 10 bit Ultra Deep Color compatible.

HDCP 2.2 is required to watch 4K content on the streaming apps on the PS4 Pro (confirmed by others and I've tested it myself). 4K on youtube works with HDCP 1.4 as far as I can tell.


Question is;
Do I need to run HDCP 2.2 to get full 4K support when playing supported 4K games on the PS4 Pro, or doesn't HDCP matter as long as my HDMI port supports 4K at 60 hz (which they all do)?

Reason for asking is I prefer to use the 10bit HDMI port to get RGB color format on my PS4, which I find makes a huge difference on playing games as well as watching HBO etc. If I use my HDCP 2.2 port I will only be able to use YUV420 color format.


I hope for constructive feedback. Should I maybe contact Sony to confirm if HDCP matters when playing games?

Yer it's absolutely fine:

Make sure it's set to 2160p RGB and you are good to go for games in 4k

Aside from a few streaming apps YUV420 is basically for HDR output and RBG as non HDR (however this still gives a wider colour range to standard outputs)

See above, the monitor should be fine except for streaming uhd content as described
