FYI, my Roku XD doesn't care about HDCP, nor does my ~4 year old Win7-based HTPC, when connected to a brand new Insignia LCD HDTV. The devices both play HD content via HDMI to the TV, while allowing my TV to feed the audio out via 3.5mm headphone jack to RCA splitter to my 20-yr-old pro-logic receiver, which is happy to play the analog audio.
This of course flies in the face of HDCP's intended operation, which tries to restrict any sort of analog output of audio that was delivered in an HD digital signal. When I hook up my upscaling DVD player, the HDCP works as intended, and all I get is a black screen with a copy-protection warning as the audio from the DVD plays through my analog receiver. Put the same disc into my HTPC, and no problem--digital video on the screen and analog audio through the HT.
The point is, HDCP doesn't always get in the way, even though it claims it will, particularly with devices that are a few years old... even if the tech specs indicate they are "HDCP compliant".
Just my $.02, caveat emptor, YMMV, TGIF, etc. Woot on!
