I have an Ilo 32" tv, and Charter (scientific atlantic box) cable service with which I use a hdmi out, dvi in cable. For the past few months, after a varying amount of time, the screen would scramble to a green, red, or yellow picture, with the channel picture still behind. I have had Charter switch out the box twice, thinking it was some kind or hdmi restriction. Today I turned on the t.v., and the only picture on the screen was a picture of the back of the box, and an x over the hdmi connector, with a script above telling me to switch to the component t/v connection. This has been an ongoing problem. Any ideas???

Unfortunately, your charter HD DVR cable box is not a Viera link device that is compatible with the TC-P50ST30. Viera Link only works to control Panasonic HDAVI devices that are Viera Link ready (and that use the same Viera link coding) when using the HDMI cable. Thus some Viera link devices of different generations will not work with the same Viera link remote.
Component cables don't have the ability to carry decrypted HD info.
HDCP is "High Definition Copy Protection"...In theory, it prevents you from running the HDMI cable out of your receiver, and into a recording device, thereby recording HD content without a license for it.
HDCP handshaking is done between devices that run HDMI, or DVI.
If you're running component from your Cable box, and then HDMI out to your TV, then the content you're carrying from the Cable box may not be getting decrypted properly when it gets upscaled onto the HDMI port from Component.
IT could also simply be that you're using an HDMI 1.1 or HDMI 1.2 cable, which may not be able to carry the high bandwidth stream of your Receiver and TV.
Please be sure that all HDMI devices can support the same HDMI version, and also be sure your HDMI cable is labled "HDMI 1.x compliant". . .e.g. if your TV and Amp support HDMI 1.2, make sure you're also using an HDMI 1.2 Cable.
Your TV comes with HDMI, DVI, Component In and S video in. Since it has no Tuner built in you will have to use a Set Top box with either component out or if you buy an HD Set Top box with HDMI out. The later will be in your favor so that you can use the only component video input for your old DVD player and not keep juggling pins at the back
Make sure that the cable box set set up menu has the sound selection as HDMI. This is needed especially if it is a Scientific Atlantic Cable Box.
If this does not correct the problem, call LG Customer Service to get a local Service Facility to take a look at it.
Hope this helps,
Are you using a HDMI to DVI cable or are you using a HDMI to DVI adapter? Sometimes, though not on all products you have to go into the menu and select which out put your using for each source and whats going through it. You might need to go into your dvd player menu and tell it not to try to run audio through the cable. That way it's not trying to force a signal through the cable that cant be accepted by the TV. That might possible solve your problem for the DVD player. Let me know if it works Have a Great day
