Cox's new MPEG-4 channels + Intel Video 2000 + Media Center = black screen?

So Cox in my area has added a "Plus Package" that contains a handful of new HD channels, trialing MPEG4 delivery.


Whenever I tune to one of these channels (about 8 channels) on my main HTPC (w/PCIe Ceton +  Intel Video 2000) I get one of two results:


1. A "display driver error" with "does not support playback of protected content"

2. A black screen, but I can hear the audio of the  program.


Typically I'll get #1 first, and then #2 occurs on all subsequent attempts to tune the channel.

If I tune to these channels using an XBOX 360 extender they work fine (indicating there is not a problem with the channels themselves, or the Ceton CableCard tuner).  Likewise I have a second HTPC with a video card (NVidia) and it can tune them fine.


The PC is a new build as follows:


Core i3-2120T
DZ68DB (latest BIOS + chipset drivers)
Corsair XMS3 4x4gb
Ceton InfiniTV 4 PCIe (latest firmware)


Any ideas ?
