I don't know if it's firmware or hardware, however, it is NOT a problem, it is the DESIGN -- and an asinine one at that.
Essentially due to copyright issues with HD video, they CAN NOT decode the video to an analog output source. That's all fine and good, however, the audio never fell into that copyright issue. So you should be able to carry though the audio signal from those sources (since in the case of the component input, they're analog anyway). I think Hitachi is the ONLY company that just disables ALL analog outputs when it senses the video signal on the component or HDMI inputs (and you have the tv set for that input). They really should have ONLY disabled the video.
I had a half hour conversation with customer service, begging them to 1) file a complaint to fix this in the next firmware version, or 2) let me speak with an engineer to give me a hack -- obviously they didn't do that :(
The funny thing is, they WILL allow the Optical Audio output signal to carry though.
I've now been frantically searching the internet for information on how to bypass this ridiculous design 'feature'. As this TV isn't that popular, there's not much info out there on how to do so. So, I wouldn't know if I can simply try to attack the firmware code, or, if I actually have to take off the back of the TV and muck around with my soldering iron -- I'm hoping firmware.
One test shows that the control signal to SHUT OFF the entire analog outputs (audio and video) is on the 'Pb' (blue) input of the component video. If I have that one cable pulled out, I can get the Audio out to work and hear everything on my external stereo -- obviously I have a completely jibberish and unwatchable picture though. Once I plug in the 'Pb' cable, the picture comes in, obviously, but the external stereo sound cuts off.
At any rate. Just to reiterate, it's a design issue, and Hitachi seems unwilling to address the HD video copyright issues any other way. I am going to obviously send them a letter by mail telling them how their 'sledge hammer' approach to this issue is ridiculous when there is a 'scalpel' approach that is completely legally viable -- and all their competitors do it that way.
For this reason I now regret buying this TV.

SOURCE: digital audio out jack
That output only works with digital signals (digital tv channels and digital audio from the hdmi in jack).
The HDLCD2600 has no analog out. Sorry.

Your right. I just had the same "Invalid Input" issue as well and it completely relates to the resolution compatability with any VGA or HDMI connection. Check the LG website for the online manual if you don't have it and see the section on RGB-PC cable. There is a table that incdicates the Resolutions the LG product is capable of displaying.
Thanks for the help.

You probably need a audio cable that runs from the pc audio out to the TV audio in. Radio shack has them so do a lot of hardware store and best buy.

SOURCE: need a code for grundig tv
Grundig is an European brand, and these mostly use the remote control standard established by Philips. If you have some Philips TV models on your universal remote list, try these, one of them might do the job perfectly well.
