Dvi interface LT30 HV
You are indeed correct, you answered your own question. You are looking at the HDCP issue. TV Firmware has little to do with that issue because no updates would rectify the "problem" (which is actually a lack of feature). The issue is caused by the hardware as you would need a chip that is not present on this HDTV.
Your Olevia TV is simply not HDCP compliant, believe me, I own the very same model. ;) It's an older TV produced when HDCP was starting to appear on the market for the first HDMI-equipped HDTVs, therefore the only purpose for that DVI port is the same one of the VGA port, i.e. to double the use of the TV as a desktop monitor, or allow to attach a computer used as multimedia center. You still need to use separate ports for audio signals since DVI here is not carrying both video and audio. Even if you use an DVI to HDMI adapter the result would be the same. Therefore if you need to used the Olevia with your HT system I would advise upgrading to a newer HDCP compliant model and maybe use this one for something else that would not require HDCP compliance.
The blues screen is a "normal" behavior for all HDCP non-compliant TV sets. We only have the greed and fear of the MPAA and "friends" to thank for crippling our electronics. It's all due to that and to their ineptitude and lack of interest to find a better solution to content piracy. Obviously it's also due to the fact that they can pretty much write whatever rule they like since they and are completely unaccountable. Therefore after buying a $1400 HDTV, we (you and I both plus all the other owners of similar HDTVs) are no longer allowed to use our electronics because we would certainly do so only to steal from all the poor in Hollywood Beverly Hills and other Slums like those across the globe! ;P That is why any TV that is not HDCP compliant will not receive any signal other than the blue screen of "I assume you are trying to steal copyrighted material" because you see... we all are thieves before being customers as they like to remind us through the warning they shove dow our ocular nerves as we are forced (can't skip or ffwd like the old VHS tapes!) to watch each time we play a movie that we have lawfully rented, purchased, or streaming through a dedicated service.
Since consumers don't (and never will) have the power to make a decision in similar matters and all those ""AA" associations who have an absolute power (which we already know it corrupts absolutely ;P), will definitely make sure consumers never get any leverage so that those "AAs" will never be forced into adopting a fair approach for those of us who are not thieves of protected material. If consumers can't protest then the "AAs" and their supporters can exercise all the carelessness they need and still get away with impunity. Sure, they may be able to find a more viable solution, but… why bother?
So in conclusion, quoting a famous show: "there is nothing wrong with your television. Do not attempt to adjust the picture..."they control" all that you see and hear… ;D
