    Guys, this is amazing, as my LG OLED c7 simply can't keep up with the 4K 60Hz HDR content from my OnePlus7 Pro, resulting in very disturbing artefacts. When playing directly from the phone using a StarTech 4K HDR-capable USB-C to HDMI 2.x adapter, image quality is impeccable!

    Just to be absolutely clear:
    With this cable i can connect my op7 pro to my tv, and watch video's I have downloaded on the tv?
    No special all or settings?
    Sorry no necro an old post but there is not a lot of op7pro specific information :)

    Yes .That is the case. However, the 7 Pro is a different aspect ratio than TVs, so you'll have a black border around pretty much everything when you watch stuff this way.

    It's a feature that was firstly included in the 7 series including the cheaper OnePlus 7. It should be enabled with the USB 3.1 GEN 1 Port. The OnePlus 7T series does also feature the USB 3.1 port.
    The McLaren Edition has different color and a higher storage capacity. The rest in terms of internals is the same.

    I didn't tested it but I had no idea why it shouldn't support it.

    I'm also interested in the answer about the Netflix part 🙂

    Do you know guys if the op8 will also be compatible with PD and HDMI like the op7 ?

    Just buy a $20 Chromecast and you're good to go. Keep it simple!

    Netflix works for me. However, amazon video and YouTube TV give me a decryption error. Because of this experience, I'm totally confused whether or not this is an HDCP issue.

    Easy, it's a DRM issue.

    Easy? How so?

    You say DRM issue... Ok, who's issue, OnePlus or Amazon's? Why no DRM issue with Netflix? I have no issue with playing Amazon video from a laptop hdmi port to a tv hdmi port.

    I'm sure I'm wrong, but if sender and receiver are both HDCP compliant, is that not the same as "DRM" compliant? If not, then why no issue with Netflix? And if I have an active amazon prime video account with authorization to view content on both devices, why would there be a DRM issue?

    Does OnePlus need to have some sort of license specifically for amazon content? If so, why don't they? If so, why wouldn't my active amazon account in the app on my oneplus 7 Pro phone not be sufficient?

    Buying a Chromecast is not the point. If you're somewhere with no wifi, just cellular, then Chromecast is useless. One reason for the ability to direct connect a phone to a display is to watch a movie paid for and downloaded from Amazon video. I personally have movies I paid for and downloaded to my phone. I'd like to watch them with my kids while camping.

    Issue with Amazon, obviously. Anti-piracy method.

    I sincerely appreciate your responses. I'm not trying to be a wise guy, but why are you so certain this is an issue with amazon?

    My 7 pro does allow Netflix video, but doesn't allow video from Amazon, YouTubeTV or Hulu.

    My HP laptop can transmit (wired hdmi-to-hdmi or miniDisplayPort-to-hdmi) all major streaming services no problem.

    This seems to me an issue with oneplus 7 pro. I suspect the 7 Pro hardware interface is compliant. It would have to be as at least one HDCP/DRM streaming service works (Netflix). Unless my assumption that Netflix has DRM (maybe they don't).

    But for other services to not work, seems as if some DRM license/encryption key (of some sort) is not set right within the 7 Pro.

    The Netflix app comes preinstalled on the OnePlus 7 (Pro) and newer. OnePlus also cooperated with Netflix for some advanced functionality. This could be one part of it.

    YouTube TV, Prime Video and Hulu are all third-party app that are installed as user apps that may have less permissions or optimizations for this device.

    This is an idea and I don't if this is the reason.

    I tested Netflix on a secondary display with my 7T and it worked fine too.
    I'm currently on vacation without a reliable wifi source. I test Prime Video on my 7T when I'm at home. I could test it with my Galaxy Tab S4 soon. I downloaded some content on this device.
    Hulu and YouTube TV isn't available in my region so I can't test it.

    Amazon Prime Video doesn't work on 7T either. It shows a decryption error when a secondary display is connected.

    On my Galaxy Tab S4 Prime Video is working fine. Absolutely fine not because DeX doesn't 'support' the Prime Video app. Without DeX the playback of Prime Video works fine on a secondary display.

    So the Prime Video issue isn't a general issue of Android or Prime Video. OnePlus should be able fix this issue.

    Again, DRM issue.

    Yeah, a DRM issue likely. Bigger question is does the issue reside on the OnePlus device or with Amazon?

    My concern is that it's an actual HW issue inadvertently doing something with the HDCP encryption/decryption keys.
