I have a new i5-3570K processor and am using the HD 4000 graphics to drive a Dell 2709W monitor using the display port interface from an Asus P8Z77-V Deluxe motherboard. I just downloaded latest driver from Intel. Everything seems to be working fine, but when trying to display a protected file recorded with Media Center - the file plays for about 1 second, and then I get an error message "Display driver error," and then the line below "The video playback device does not support playback of protected content."
I used this monitor previously on my old computer with a Nvdia display board, and the DVI interface, so the monitor should be capable of displaying protected content.
Is there a solution?
Thanks for the information and the link to the article.
I guess I'll need to connect by HDMI, but it's a bit of a bummer because one reason I purchased this motherboard was that it had a display port output - which I wanted to use (in anticipation of getting a newer super high resolution monitor). Evidently HDMI has a maximum resolution limit lower than display port...
I'm in somewhat the same boat as you... Purchased a DH67BL/Core i7-2600 setup to pair with my Dell U3011 2560x1600 display.
Problem is that you can get 2560x1600 only with DisplayPort (DP) with the Intel graphics because Intel doesn't support dual-link DVI... and you can't get "protected path" from Windows with DP.
I ended up buying a discrete Nvidia GT 430 card that supports dual-link DVI and put the Intel HD3000 out to pasture...
