    HDMI/DVI-D HDCP handshake, help!

    So I'm in the process of helping someone install an A/V setup, which includes a projector and a plasma screen. What he wants is to be able to output every source to both machines, but most AVR's do not have twin HDMI outputs. I've figured that I need to get an active HDMI splitter that will take the one signal from the A/V receiver and feed it to two HDMI outputs. As far as I know, this should work.

    However, his projector is an older Panasonic 720p model that only has a DVI-D input. If I use a HDMI to DVI-D adaptor, i'm guessing it should work? I'm only asking because i've heard about High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP) and handshake issues. The problem here is that there will be a good number of elements in the chain (surround receiver, HDMI splitter and then DVI-D adaptor), so im hoping i wont end up with a blank screen on the projector.

    Thoughts?
