Hi Team,

 

I have split out this onto a new thread as per instructions from @Andres_Intel 

 

Re:No Netflix 4k or HDR because of broken HDCP 2.2 on Intel iGPU...and more - Page 2 - Intel Community

 

I am unable to play 4K Netflix on my Alienware m15 r4 laptop via the built-in display. 

 

The Intel Graphics Command Center states that the built-in display is not HDCP Compliant:

Windows is up to date and the latest BIOS & Drivers have been installed as per Dell's support site.

 

Kind Regards,

Hello Mysterious


Thank you for posting on the Intel Communities. I am sorry you are experiencing issues when trying to use Netflix on your system due to HDCP compatibility.


I see you have done some troubleshooting from the previous thread and I would like to ask you for a couple more pieces of information:


  • Was this working before? If, so was there any update, or hardware change that you remember previous to this issue occurring?
  • Create a System report following these instructions. Only use the instructions under Intel Graphics Command Center (Intel GCC).


Best Regards,

Hi Hugo,

 

I can't confirm if it was working prior as I have only attempted to utilize Netflix on this machine since the beginning of this month.

 

I normally watch Netflix on my TV in the living room but as it is winter here in Australia I decided to change to my bedroom where I keep my laptop.

 

I have attached the report as requested.

 

Kind Regards,

Hello Mysterious


Thank you for the information. Based on this laptop's specifications, the manufacturer's website shows it should be HDCP compatible using its HDMI port but no mentions of the built-in display. Could you please test it by connecting the laptop to a TV through HDMI and checking if Netflix works in this configuration?


Also, please let try reinstalling the driver using Display Driver Uninstaller, first test the latest version 27.20.100.9664 provided by your system manufacturer, and if the issue persists test the latest generic version 31.0.101.2115 we offer.


Best regards,

Hi Hugo,

 

I have downloaded the Display Driver Uninstaller and followed the instructions. Unfortunately, neither 27.20.100.9664 or 31.0.101.2115 worked.

 

Netflix still displayed the error message.

 

When I connect my laptop to my TV via the HDMI cable the control panel states that the video output is from the Nvidia GPU. 

 

Due to the Nvidia GPU being utilized the Netflix app plays but it defaults to Full HD. It will not allow the option of 4K playback.

 

I contacted Netflix and they have advised me that due to DRM they will only allow 4K playback via the Intel CPU with HEVC app installed.

 

Kind Regards,

 

Mysterious

Hello Mysterious


I see from the previous thread you already have an HEVC extension installed on your system, correct? In this case, we will need to further look into this issue, however, please also, let's try reinstalling the Netflix app to make sure there are no corrupted files or installation.

Hi Hugo,

 

I have tried reinstalling the Netflix app and it hasn't made a difference.

 

I still receive the same error message.

Hello Mysterious


After reviewing this issue with our team, our recommendation is that you reach out to your system manufacturer since there might be hardware limitations that might prevent the HDCP feature to work on the built-in screen. Since as outlined in their website only the HDMI should have this capability.


Best regards,

Hi Hugo,

 

I have just had a Dell Technician come over to replace the motherboard of the laptop. It seems to have fixed the issue even though the Intel Graphics Command Centre gives the same error message.Blade Runner 2049 Playing 4K on Laptop Screen.png

Thank you for your hard work!

Hi Hugo,

 

Bad news. 

 

After the motherboard replacement the laptop needed to update the BIOS.

 

As soon as that happened I got the previous error message.

 

I am escalating again with Dell Support.

 

Kind Regards,

Hi All,

 

Just wanted to provide an update. Dell has supplied a new BIOS 1.18 that has fixed this issue.

 

Hope this helps anyone else that had the same problem.

 

Kind Regards,
