Question about Westinghouse LVM-47w1 47 in. HD-Ready LCD Television
I have a Westinghouse LCD TV 32'' model SK-32H640G. I set up my Sony Blu Ray DVD Player to it with an HDMI cord. When I change it to the HDMI view, the screen says "Not Supported". What does that mean?? Is there any way to fix it?
I have tried playing with the settings on my blu ray player and then hooking it up to the tv and it doesnt fix the problem. 1080p/24 is turned off. I've tried asking Westinghouse a bunch of times if the reason the tv won't work with my blu ray player is cuz its not HDCP compatible and no one never knows what HDCP is and can't answer my question. I personally think it's messed up that they don't comply with legal contingencies like HDCP?! Here's my story:
For the last 3 months, I have had a constant headache with Westinghouse and Toshiba.. My tv is one I got last Black Friday (bad idea choosing this brand) - Westinghouse VR-4625 46" LCD 1080p HDTV. My Toshiba BDX2250 worked fine with my Westinghouse (I'm guessing because this was an old model and maybe didn't have to be HDCP compliant?) but the blu ray player broke after 7 months so I returned it to get a new one but they didn't have any more of those models and gave me a newer model - BDX2300. That one gave me the start up screen and then went black - doesn't play movies, audio, can't get to the start up screen.. But, it works just FINE with other tvs other than Westinghouse. It worked with my parent's Vizio... Then, I got another one of the same players cuz I thought it was broken and then I realized it just was the tv or the model. So finally they send me another newer model the BDX3300. This one does the SAME thing. I call Westinghouse and they constantly say a level 2 tech will call me back but they've lied constantly. One lady even told me that level 2 techs don't even exist. 10 minutes later, she said she would get me on the phone with a level 2 tech because 2 were standing right next to her (wait, what happened to them not existing?!) and she comes back from putting me on hold and never put me on the phone with them! Now the 3rd person I talk to tells me Westinghouse isn't compatible with Toshiba blu ray but I ask if its all the tvs and she says she doesn't know she doesnt see why it would only be one but I wonder if its cuz this is a black friday tv? But then again, I think Westinghouse just SUCKS and none of them work with toshiba at all cuz they lie to me constantly. They tell me different things EVERY time. I hate Westinghouse and am filling out a complaint to the Better Business Bureau BBB now. This has been a horrible experience and I will always buy the more known, expensive brands from now on!!

I have the same issue with this TV and an Xbox. it can't keep a HDCP connection and my research shows that it either can't support HDCP or I have a cable that isn't able to support the speed (It pretty cheap) or signal, or it's a bad cable. I'm going to swap it out to see. But Blue Rays use HDCP and you may be having the same issue.
