Question about LG LHT734 System
I have a Hitachi 65S500 t.v. and just upgraded to a directv HD-DVR when the technician went to hook up the receiver to my t.v. he said that my t.v. did not have a HDMI hook up on it so he hooked up the receiver useing component cables my question is how do I hook up a sony blu ray machine without a HDMI cable I already have the component cables hooked to my t.v. for the HD-DVR can I use more component cables or do they have to be hook to the same inputs that the DVR is hooked to in that case am I out of luck and can't hook up a blu ray I checked my manuals and see that my t.v. does have a DVI-HDTV hook up can this be used instead

In most cases like yours, the connector has a bad solder joint inside the TV. This occurs from strain from where the HDMI cable gets bumped or bent against a wall or something drops on it. If your skilled and brave, you can go into the TV and check the DVI conector and how well it is soldered in place. Repair the solder joint if this is the case. Good luck. Just think of how proud you will be to have repaired this yourself.

You say this doesn't happen on regular cable or when playing a regular DVD. Hmm. Is this Blu-Ray player connected by simplink? HDMI is a bi-directional format cable, so there are cases in setups where your tv can send commands to your blu-ray player and vice versa. It could be a problem with your blu-ray player that it is sending for some odd reason a mute command to your tv. Or is processing a command that your TV interprets to be a mute command when playing blu-rays. Because if it was the TV itself chances are you'd see this when watching a normal DVD or on cable as well. Since you say you're not, it leads me to believe the issue lies with the blu-ray player itself.

It may be a firmware issue if hdmi works with other items such as playstation.
If no hdmi the main Pcb hdmi ports are bad and the main Pcb would have to be replaced.
Consumers cannot upgrade the firmware so a shop would be the only option.

it sounds like a refresh issue, double check you selector and make sure it fits the refresh of the tv. i had this once with a sharp where the tv was 120hz and the selector was 60 and it created a no signal and when it did come in it was jumpy. if you have a 120 tv then selector should be the same.
