Damn DRM

I’ve had a real HDTV all of two days, and I’m already annoyed at HDCP issues. My cable box apparently cuts off the component output when an HDMI cable (which goes to the new TV in the bedroom) is connected. It doesn’t have to, this isn’t required by HDCP as far as I know. What this means, though, is that until I replace my projector and get an HDMI splitter/switch, I need to unplug the HDMI cable to watch TV on my projector. Thanks to HDCP, there’s no HDMI to component adapter, and the only component to HDMI adapter I can find costs $180. Then I’d still need the HDMI switch. Epson needs to release the damn Home Cinema 1080 UB already.
