Using the Razer Ripsaw HD, how can I fix the PS4's black screen (no signal)?

One of the greatest capture cards for streaming and recording PS4 action right now is the Razer Ripsaw HD, however many gamers who use it report black screens or poor signal while connected to the PS4. There is a simple remedy available if you run across this issue while attempting to set up your Razer Ripsaw HD.

Why does using the Razer Ripsaw HD not cause a signal problem or a dark screen?

If you're using an external capture card for the first time, such as the Razer Ripsaw HD, you might be perplexed as to why your TV or monitor isn't picking up your PS4. Don't worry, though. Neither your capture card nor your devices have any issues. This is not a problem either; rather, a PS4's little-known HDCP licensing system is at work here.

What is HDCP?

High-bandwidth An anti-piracy standard called Digital Content Protection, or HDCP, is used in several electronic devices, including your PS4, to prevent content from being taken or duplicated without authorization. It's a type of DRM, or digital rights management, that makes sure a certain piece of information can only be seen on a specific type of device.

Specific to the HDMI cable standard is HDCP. When enabled, HDCP can successfully prevent content from streaming via HDMI to an unauthorized or non-HDCP-compliant device.

Unless the receiving device, such as the Razer Ripsaw HD capture card, is HDCP compliant, you won't be able to send your games or content through HDMI because HDCP is enabled by default on your PS4. You must disable HDCP on your PS4 in order to circumvent this restriction so a capture card can pass HDMI signals and send them to your TV or monitor.
