Solving the “Secure HDCP link not found” problem with the Xbox 360 (X360)

I recently tried to play for the first time a DVD on my Xbox 360 and was greeted by one of the worst miserable human invention: HDCP. Great companies and smart engineers wasted resources on something useless to me as a consumer.

The solution was easy when found. Just buy an HDMI splitter and an additional HDMI cable and you are set.

Now you should be able to play DVDs and Netflix without “Secure HDCP link not found” through.

Some of you might have sound for games but not for DVDs or Netflix. If it is the case, make sure that you go to “Display Settings” and then enable “Display Discovery”. The HDMI splitter also solves that issue.

  1. Hi, I get this problem all the time with my xbox. For example: Sky Player, Love Film, Netflix, DVD, Demand 5 etc, but I don’t get it with games! I came across this solution for fixing the annoying message, but I already have 2 HDMI ports in my TV, so what does the splitter do and how do I set it up?

    • The splitter acts like a cord extender, except that you have this box sitting in between. Your current HDMI cable from X-Box to TV, will now go from X-Box to Splitter, then you need an additional cable from splitter to TV. And that’s it. No idea what it does internally, I just know it solved all my HDCP issues.
