42LG50 was working great without problem. Today we recieve an error message concerning HDMI connections and unable to watch TV using the HDMI connection. I was able to watch TV using traditional (Red yellow white) cables and used the input located on the side. Currently a Verizon VIOS customer using a box. TV is only two months old.

Yes your tv is hdcp compliant.
This may not help but often when this message comes up it is the hdmi cable you are using. I do not know whether or not you are using an hdmi to dvi cable or an adaptor or and hdmi to hdmi connection. The cables available for purchase at beachaudio.com are not expensive but they usually work when you need to try another hdmi cable because of this particular message.
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.
Just run red and white composite audio cables from the audio out ports above the AVin1 ports on the back of the tv to one of the audio input ports on the home theater system, remember which input port you connected it to and when you want to watch tv with the home theater sound just switch to that input on the home theater system.
