KB01485 - Apple macOS and iOS Sources with AT-HDVS-200-TX / AT-HDVS-200-TX-WP (HDCP Compliance)


Subject: Apple macOS and iOS Sources with AT-HDVS-200-TX / AT-HDVS-200-TX-WP (HDCP Compliance)

Some devices such as Apple macOS and iOS sources will HDCP-encrypt all output including the desktop if an HDCP-compliant display/sink is detected, rather than just HDCP-protected content such as a movie from a streaming service.

The AT-HDVS-200-TX and AT-HDVS-200-TX-WP have Input HDCP settings that can switch between COMPLIANT (ON) and NON-COMPLIANT (OFF). Setting this value to OFF will instruct the source device to send unencrypted content (if possible) to a non-HDCP display and/or sink devices.

To begin, access your AT-HDVS-200-TX / AT-HDVS-200-TX-WP WebGUI by following the steps outlined in this Atlona Help Center Article: KB01181 - How to access the web graphic user interface (web-gui) on the HDVS-200 series

Once logged in to the device's WebGUI, navigate to the EDID tab and locate the Input HDCP drop-down:


Input HDCP settings provide control over the transmission of HDCP content for the HDMI IN port(s). The following options are available:

Compliant - Forces detection of HDCP-compliant sink devices. If the sink device is not HDCP-compliant, then no content will be transmitted.

Noncompliant - Suppresses detection of HDCP-compliant sink devices, allowing non-HDCP content to be transmitted.

Auto - Automatically detects the presence of HDCP-compliant sink devices. If an HDCP-compliant display is detected, then HDCP content will be sent. Otherwise, non-HDCP content will be sent.

NOTE: The HDCP control feature does not provide decryption of HDCP content to non-HDCP sink

For your Apple macOS and iOS sources, configure your AT-HDVS-200-TX / AT-HDVS-200-TX-WP for Input HDCP - Noncompliant or Auto, which will allow the non-HDCP encrypted content on the Apple macOS / iOS source (such as the desktop) to pass.
