Have any of you heard of any of the cable companies or Netflix being able to restrict a PPV event to only one TV on a matrixed system.? A customer of mine asked me this as he was reading something about this on a consumer forum.

TIA

Wouldn't a more sophisticated matrix have the ability to set edid to make the cable box think it was feeding just one?

Yes. Have never had an issue with Crestron DM. I guess the better question should have been “ Is it legal?”

A product called the EDID Detective from almost ten years ago did exactly this. Was it from Gefen?
A good answer is easier with a clear question giving the make and model of everything.

Nobody is chirping in about the legal issues with matrixing a PPV event. Any comments on this?

DirecTV Charges by your occupancy regardless of whether you are showing it on one TV in the backroom or on every TV in the building. Or at least thats how they did it a few years ago....

I would assume other providers are the same... arent they?

PPV in a commercial establishment is based on the fire code allowable patrons. If your fire code maximum allowable patrons is 200 and you only have 50 show up you’re still paying for the 200. As an example 200 people for the mayweather pacquiao fight was 6500$.
