* Sony vs Westinghouse

Printer-friendly page Print this story   Email this to a friend
Sony's getting rough, and so's Westinghouse - each are blaming each other for the PS3 and Westinghouse TV's not getting along, even when the real reason is rather obvious: hdmi/hdcp is just a broken protocol.

Popular Mechanics discovered the problem when we first tested the PS3 and noticed that occasionally the image on the screen of our Westinghouse 1080p test set would blink intermittently and play no sound. After a lengthy investigation last week, we learned that the problem occurred because, for reasons now unknown, the devices were unable to exchange their HDCP (High Bandwidth Digital Content Protection) key, an encryption code which prevents unauthorized recording of an HDTV signal.
Another reason not to buy a PS3, it seems.
