Strip Out HDCP With GameSwitch PS3-S201

Postby Ian on Thu May 31, 2007 10:12 am

I think this is the first hardware device I've seen that will let you connect your computer or PS3 to a monitor with DVI that doesn't support HDCP. It appears to be available in Japan right now. I kinda doubt we'll see it over here.

Kiss Blu-ray HDCP good-bye? A product known as the the GameSwitch PS3-S201 lets folks run their PLAYSTATION 3 on DVI monitors without high-def copy protection. Typically, an HDCP-certified monitor is required to play back Blu-ray and PS3 content if you're using DVI. Otherwise it won't play Blu-ray. The GameSwitch lets players game on DVI monitors, but also hook it up to an input. Meaning? Meaning that you could record 1-to-1 copy! The bad part: Since DVI is video only, audio would have to be recorded separately.

I've seen other HDCP strippers available online before, but I don't think they are available for purchase any more...
