I changed port to a non MHL port and I still occasionally get the DRM warning (usually at start up) about HD. I am still getting HD.
I get that occasionally, if ignored it goes away after a few seconds.
I put it down to the double hdmi handshake due to the box being connected via a AV reciever.
5000T to AV receiver. AV receiver confirms 1080p capability and ability to use the audio compression codec being used (AAC converted to AC3 for HD channels and is not a recording device.
AV receiver to TV. TV confirms that it is a display and not a recorder and has the ability to handle H264/AVC at 1080p. Audio handshake isn't required because the AV receiver handles the audio and sends it to it's connected speakers.
If the TV handles the audio, it has to report back to the source the audio can also handled and also it's not a recorder.
The box does seem pretty slow in completing the required handshake, just ignore for a few seconds.
I have a lot of recordings, it's also slow in populating the recordings list. If you press the recordings list just after boot it says no recordings. Exit - leave it for 15 seconds or so and try again they all appear just fine. It just takes time for the box to copy the data.
Deletions also take much longer on a Linux device because unlike Windows when you delete a recording file the actual data is deleted. On a PC only the pointers in the the FAT (File allocation table) are deleted. (Hence the capability to undelete. recover from the trash bin)).
