    I installed WMC and am connecting to a Sillicondust HD homerun prime network tuner, WMC complains that the video playback device does not support playback of protected content.
    Everything is up to date, I5 256GB SP3.
    anyone else run into the same problem

    Yes - same setup and problem but no solution, unfortunately. At least I can confirm that there seems to be a bug.

    Try restoring the window so it's not maximized, then change the channel back and forth. Sometimes this gets it working for me. You can maximize the program after it starts working.

    An alternative is to install HDHomeRun VIEW (their new beta player) or HDHomeRun QuickTV. The downside is that you can't record TV with these programs.

    Um, does this work differently or without issue on other devices?

    What if you lower the resolution?
