Don't know where you got that from, but yes it is HDCP compatible. I use a massively overclocked 8600GT (while gaming) and it plays all 1080p content (including Blu-Ray) on my 1080p Toshiba Regza via HDMI just fine.

But again, if you already have an 8400GS, why bother? If you're not gaming, then an upgrade is not needed and is just wasted money. It doesn't take jack $hit to play videos and movies now-a-days. Playing videos/movies and gaming are two totally different things. Seriously. If you have $70 to waste, shoot it my way. I could really use it right about now.
