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.

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.

Testimonial: "very fast, thanks for the help!"
Pickled! You did right by checking the cables, the tv inputs and as well the output on the blue ray...even by replacing the blue ray. Which leads to a problem within the tv monitor. I can only guess there is something in the software of the tv that is causing the problem. I can only suggest two options. If can connect the tv to a network via CAT5 cable, you can do a frimware update to the tv. Sort of like a software update. If it is not available, try to swap the HDMI cable for the 5 RCA component video. It will still carry HD signal, just not as crisp as the HDMI. I would be floored if the same thing happened with the component cable.

I would call the front desk. They usually have a maintenance person who can help you with the connection. If the TV HDMI port is not functioning, they may be able to swap tv's or move you to another room! Good luck!
