HDCP Operation Mode

VBH100 supports 2 working modes as below,

  1. Normal display mode (LED = White)
  2. HDCP support mode (LED = Green)

HDCP refers to High-Bandwidth Digital Content Protection, which is digital copy protection for content distributed via HD DVD, Blu-ray Disc, PlayStation 3, etc.

If the VBH100 is operating in Normal display mode, it won’t show HDCP protected content. In order to display HDCP content with the VBH100, press and hold the selection knob for 3 seconds to activate HDCP support mode.

When HDCP support mode is active, VBH100 will be able to display HDCP content video, but will not be able to record HDCP content video. The REC button will flash between Green and Red to caution users that the VBH100 won’t be able to record.

Press and hold for 3 seconds to activate HDCP support mode

Use the reference chart below to understand the relationship between the VBH100 working modes and LED statuses:

REC BUTTON LED LED Color LED STATUS SYSTEM STATUS
Red ON Normal display mode – Recording HDCP support mode – Recording
Red Continuously flashing Saving data (do not remove USB drive)
White ON Normal display mode – Not recording
Green ON HDCP support mode – Not recording
Red/Green Continuously flashing between 2 colors HDCP support mode – HDCP protected, unable to record content
Orange Continuously flashing Searching for USB device or no video source

Serial number for recording file name

After recording, the VBH100 creates an .mp4 file for each recording. Each .mp4 file uses record_(serial number).mp4 as the file name format. The serial number for each file name starts from 0, 1, 2, 3… and increments every time an .mp4 file is created.

Note that every time the VBH100 is powered off, the serial number for the .mp4 file name resets back to 0, 1, 2, 3… Make sure your previous recording file has already been saved before you press the REC button.
