The SA8010HD with this version has an active DVI.
The question becomes "Does your TV's HDCP accept to handshake with the SA8010HD's HDCP.
- Power up the TV and change input to DVI
- Power up the SA8010HD
If you are lucky, you get Video of Broadcasts. For analog sound, change the audio cables associated with the Component input to those associated with the DVI input.
Others will have a bright Grey screen. No Broadcast Video but you get all internal data from the SA8010HD. Guide, Settings, Diagnostic pages. This means that your TV's HDCP cannot have a handshake with the SA8010HD's HDCP. Videotron is aware of the problem but you should advise them that you have HDCP problem. Send an e-mail to [email protected]
and specify your account number and the Make, model and year of manufacturing of your HDTV.
If you have a black screen,your DVI cable is not installed appropriately or is faulty.
To reactivate the Component connection, change input at your TV then remove the DVI cable from the SA8010HD while both devices are powered on. In a couple of seconds you will get the picture via Component (DVI shuts off Component).

Main new features:
While Recording = You can press the "List" button and select "Play from Beginning". When the Live program terminates, you will not be interrupted in viewing the playback.
The FF and RW functions now have a 4th speed of 128 x normal. Press the >> 4 times. At that speed, to clear commercials count 2 seconds.
After playback you can return to Live by pressing the "Live" button instead of pressing "List" twice than entering a channel number. The "Live" function will bring you to the last channel used prior to the recording playback.
If you leave the SA8010HD powered ON, the unit will eventually power down but leave the power light on. Upon powering up the TV, the DVR will ask you to press any key to activate the system. You can press "Exit".
I had this version downloaded on August 24. I immediately noticed that my HD picture quality had improved. I then analyzed the SD picture quality and that improved as well but still not on a par with the analog picture.
In General Settings, I changed my "Set Color Scheme" to "Roller Rink" and find that refreshing.
For those of us with Toshiba and Samsung HDTV's built prior to 2004 (if there are other makes, I don't know which) our TV's HDCP is version 1.0. In the 220.127.116.11 version the HDCP version is 1.1. That could be the source of our problems. Videotron is aware and they will attempt to correct this issue, in my case, later this week. As suggested above, in your e-mail to Videotron, advising them that your HDCP is not handshaking, provide details on your HDTV.
