I have an LG all in one home theatre system, LCD
OK. For all you regular Joe's like me here's the fix--plain and simple! I have Dish Networks HD receiver, an LG Home Theater System (LHB953) and an LG HD Television - although I suspect this applies for most LG TV-to-LG Audio Systems used in combination with a HD TV). My problem lied within the LG to LG setting known as SIMPLINK which tries to "auto-configure" everything between LG to LG devices.
Do this to make your HD TV (using Dish/DirecTV) play it's HD video display from the satellite provider but play the audio over the LG surround sound speakers:
1. Plug a HDMI cable from your satelite receiver's set-top-box to your HD TV. This will carry your HD "video" ONLY. Click "Input" on the TV remote until the HD video signal shows your desired TV channel from your satellite provider.
2. Plug an HD Optical cable (the one with the red laser) from your LG HTS (Home Theater System) to your satellite box. This will carry your HD "audio" ONLY.
3. This is the magic everyone seems to be overlooking. On the LG TV remote, go into the menu options and disable SIMPLINK by setting SIMPLINK=OFF. This feature allows the video and audio signals to be split over 2 different ports: HD video goes over the HDMI cable and the audio to go over the HD Optical cable.
Hope this helps!

LG LHB953 home theatre system
I'm having same issue with the same unit. Anyone out there that can help? The kicker... For us it seems to only do it to one blu ray (Tangled). Played prince of Persia just fine. Help?

The LG LHB953 won't power
I have same problem! Called LG and first they suggest a hard reset. Manual doesn't give enough info on this...by phone, instruction was to unplug, wait for power light to go out and hold down power button for 35 seconds. Plug back in. When that didn't solve problem they say it needs to be sent in for repair. Maybe the hard reset will work for you?
