if it's tv compatability issues then if you bought the same brand that could be the problem
you also dont get into if it's all material or some material that give the error
but at the end of the day this is a user helping forum apple dont read or write here so if you want their ear
The same problem just started happening to me as well. Haven't changed a thing on my system since it last worked EXCEPT for the firmware. IsraelJM is right to be upset. Hopefully, a new update will fix...
I'm pretty sure Apple monitors the communities, btw.
So, after troubleshooting, it appears the the problem is my TV. I'm gonna have to figure out a work-around because I'm sure as heck not buying a new TV because the studios made Apple turn on HDCP. It kills me that after 11 months of working fine, now I have to jump through a bunch of hoops just to watch Netflix again!!!
I have the same stupid error coming up, and it's quite a new TV.
But it's great to be able to see this is a problem, in advance (lucky me :-P )
I was about to get and use Netflix, but since it's obviously not yet capable of working with my Apple TV, I'm going to forget about that idea. I'm going to stick with Redbox, and use my DVD player!
Same problem here. Brand new Samsung TV, brand new Sony amp and brand new HDMI cable.
I can't play movie previews, trailers or even my own movies on iPad via AirPlay.
Only happened after appletv software update.
Please fix apple
just bought the new ATV3, brand new high spec hdmi cable, newish toshiba 47in rega LCD TV and exactly the same problem.
Tried all the resets, reconnections other forums suggested but no joy. Effectively a useless box with nice photos.
I concur please fix it apple with another update, in the meantime i will use my ATV 1 which at least works and maybe the ps3 which plays bluray, funny no hdcp errors there mmm....
I was able to fix the HDCP error by following these steps on my Apple tv device:
Click on Menu / Settings / iTunes Store / Video Resolution (changing the 720p HD setting to Standard Definition).
Then click Menu button twice to return and you should be right to go.
Hope this works for you too.

Great! Fix the HDCP problem by returning to standard 525 lines TV? Yeah... throw out HD and HDMI cables... let's go back to non-HD television. And get our old antenna back on the roof while we're at it!
On the other hand... maybe this is the indictment on the Apple TV technology. Maybe it's not ready yet for HDTV.

I also had exactly the same problem. I almost tried every option suggested with the exception of buying a new TV. The last solution I attempted worked: I just made all the connections (modem to MAC BOOK and modem to Apple TV 3) through ethernet (cable) rather than wireless. It worked. No more annoying HDCP warnings. I think APPLE should serously look into this problem before people spend their money on HDMI cables, modems, and TVs. The situation does important damage to APPLE's image.
Maybe Ustun has it.
I'm doing the same with the newest Apple TV via wireless and I get these issues when I play back my iPhone content via airplay.
Similar HDCP warning if i try to watch Vimeo content too.
Common issue is wireless and the new Apple TV....................
Food for thought.
Here's how I've "FIXED" it.
Each time I want to watch the Apple TV, I "usually" have to unplug the power cord from the back of the Apple TV, then wait ~15 - 30 seconds, then plug it back in.
Restart takes abouta minute for the signal to be recognized by the TV.
Then all's set, until the next time i turn it on, then its pot luck from there.
AppleTV content, my photos streamed from an IPhone 4, content doesn't matter.
The HDMI cable "condition" is a hoax in my opinion.
When I do the update ( bought the AppleTV Gen 2, days after release ) I'll update if this has gone away.
FWIW, I got this with both the Gen 1 720 AND the Gen 2 1080 models, in different locations (states) and different TV manufacturers: Sony LCD 1080 and Panasonic Plasma 720.
Software fix from Apple I suspect.
Hi, I got the same error message, BUT I have FOUND OUT THE PROBLEM and FIXED this HDCP ERROR !!!
It is not the apple TV problem indeed, this problem is come up with your HDMI cable.....
I have search around the web, and finally I noticed that there are 2 different types of HTML cables !
the standard HDMI Cable, and the High-Speed HDMI Cable....
I have tested that if I use a standard HDMI cable, the apple TV will got HDCP error,
if I use the High-speed HDMI cable, the apple TV work very WELL !!
please try ! hope this can help !
Thanks for your input csjoecho.
I still have issues with Appple TV but its more not sending a signal the TV can identify.
Seems like a "handshake" issue.
I have been able to stream content (mine off iPhone 4 photos, off Vimeo, and iTunes purchases)
I did do the "update" that showed up a month or two ago and I've been HDCP error free for a month now.
No new HDMI cable here, just the same one from the beginning, nothing special.
I still have issues but not HDCP relted as far as I can tell.
