This error may appear if the HDMI cable does not support HDCP.
Our graphics controllers support HDCP but you must use a HDMI 1.4 to have this working. This is a form of digital copy protection to prevent copying of digital audio and video content as it travels across connections

I tried a 1.4 HDMI cable from Amazon but still failed. Using same cable & tv, I was able to test and passed on a Shuttle compact pc with Celeron J1900.
My older pc using DC e8200 cpu & Foxconn board with G45 chipset also passed using any hdmi cable. Thanks you for your reply, please let me know if you have any other suggestions.
My recommendation is to update to latest graphics driver. Here you can download it:
Testing another HDMI cable or perhaps a 1.4A can do the trick.
Finally I got DQ77KB passed the DCA, problem wasn't the HDMI cables or drivers (I tried them all: original from the cd & intel web site). It works right away as soon as I change the graphic options out to Digital Television instead of the default "Clone Displays".
Thank you for sharing this information.
