Greetings.  I recently connected cable tv digital set top box for my 39" HDTV manufactured in 2013 using new HDMI cable, 1080p resolution.  Input to the tv intermittently drops out (usually for about 1 second) and recovers.  Same thing on either HDMI input (tv has two) from this STB.  Cable STB manual states that receiving device (in this case my old tv) must be HDCP compliant or else errors may occur.  Anyone know if this vintage tv is HDCP compliant?  There's no reference to HDCP in the TV manual.  Thanks.

Hi @jrschaeffer and welcome to the community!  This television doesn't have the HDCP compliance due to it's age unfortunately. Any model with the HDCP compliance will have it mentioned specifically in the user manual.  Luckily most newer models have the HDCP compliance due to it being an industry standard.
