No you don't. But if you are connecting it to view the HD picture and enhanced sound you should be connecting it to an HD TV. There are a couple of connection choices here. Use either the component video (red/green/blue RCA connectors with the stereo - left and right (red and white RCA audio connect…ors for that input) or the newer HDMI which provides digital video and audio from the Blue Ray player to the TV. Some older HD TVs have DVI inputs which only accept digital video and require adapting the HDMI ouput of the player to the DVI input of the TV. I wouldn't recommend doing that though. In that case use the Component video input as in the first example. If the TV has none of the above connections you need a new or different TV that supports the technology. (MORE)
It's highly recommended in order to get the full high definition, but you don't really have to
You can, as long as you have the player, but it will not look even 1/5th as good as what it should.
All Blu-Ray players feature backward compatibility with DVD's,which means that you can play a standard DVD in a Blu-Ray player. However, the reverse is not true. You cannot play a Blu-ray disc ina standard DVD player.
If a playstation 3 can play Blu-ray dics and also DVD what is the need for going in for a high end Blu-ray disc player?
It's true that a PS3 can play Blu-Ray discs just like a regular Blu-Ray player. While there is no specific need for a separate Blu-Ray player, some people might want a separate player so that they will not put unnecessary wear and tear on their PS3 gaming system.. Sometimes you have to purchase the… Blu-ray player because it is included in the better Home Theater Systems. They can also require internet connections (MORE)
The answer to this is no. Blu-ray may only be played by Blu-ray players due to the fact that Blu-ray DVDs were made with blue and violet rays, hence the name blu-ray, and can only read using those Blue and rays. Absolutely. All discs of every type can be read on all disc reading machines. In a short… answer, No. Blu-Ray is a relatively new technology that compresses much more information (over 50GB, or gigabytes) onto a disc that is physically the same size as a standard DVD. In comparison, a DVD holds a little over 8 GB of data on a dual-layer disc. The difference is the density at which the information is recorded, and the number of layers used. A DVD player doesn't have the ability to focus on the different layers, and the information is encoded differently on Blu-Ray than it is on a DVD. No. Blu-Rays are not DVDs and they will only work on Blu-Ray players. (MORE)
Mostly, blu ray players are complitable with dvd , so you could player dvd with a blu ray player.
hello, you don't need any certain type of T.V's you just need a play station 3 or blu ray disc player. you will find a playstation 3 cheaper its about $155 but a blu ray disc player is much more. see yah!!!
Sorry, but no. Not unless the HD-DVD player has a Blu-Ray logo on it. Blu-Ray and HD-DVD are different competing formats, like VHS and Betamax. Unfortunately, it looks like the HD-DVD format is going the way of Betamax -- WalMart recently announced that they will no longer carry HD-DVD.
no. high definition (HD) DVDs are not playable on regular or blue ray DVD players, due to the fact that HD DVDs are designed differently. therefore, they need to be played on a HD DVD compatible player. however, there are some brands of HD DVD players that will allow standard DVDs to be played, whic…h means that you will experience HD- like playback. it is my understanding that these players are known as up converting DVD players. finally, it is my understanding that you can only play blue ray discs on a blue ray DVD player.

Yes, in order to get a better picture. You can use it on a TV that is not HD but the picture would not be as good.
No. Blu-Ray discs are not DVDs and they will only work on Blu-Ray players. But there are portable Blu-Ray players
Yes it can and needs an HD television to be seen in the best quality. A Bluray player will also work with standard definition televisions using the analog outputs they usually have. The content will only be seen in standard definition of corurse.
No, you need a BlueRay player, or an XBox 360 - it has one built in.
There have been just one or two high definition DVD players capable of playing HD DVD and Bluray discs. If you have one, it will make it very obvious on the front panel that it will play both. It is unlikely that you own one of these, so the HD DVD player in question almost certainly plays HD DVDs a…nd not Bluray. It will also play standard definition DVDs as well of course but if the movie is on Bluray, you're out of luck. . For clarity, HD DVD was the competitor to Bluray in the high definition disc war that ended in 2008. Both formats were capable of replaying high definition video and both were compatible with standard definition DVDs. Bluray was the victor in the war and the fatally wounded HD DVD players were withdrawn from the shelves quietly and without fuss. They were sold at 90% discounts in outlet stores. Sadly, those people who were tempted to buy one have since found that their collection of 4 HD DVD movies is never to be expanded. . Quick follow up to this post. There are a huge amount of HD DVD movies to be found at Amazon.com I was there last week looking for some new BlueRay movies and found a ton of HD DVD movies. If you have a HD DVD player and are looking for movies to expand your library try here just copy and paste to your browser if it does not come out as a link. http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_ss?url=search-alias%3Ddvd&field-keywords=hd+dvd&x=0&y=0 (MORE)
You can watch your dvd in your blu-ray player, but you can't watch blu-ray in your dvd player... sent by Macymouse Yes they can, they convert it to HD on the screen
Yes they are. Bluray players have an HDMI output for their high definition signal output as well as analog connections for compatibility with displays that are not HDMI compatible.
Yes. Blu-Ray players will only operate with a standard definition television using the analog outputs on the player. The outputs are standard definition of course, so the HD quality of the BluRay disc won't be seen.
Yes, but you can't play a blue ray disk in a regular DVD player. It won't look much improved if the television is bad.
Digital TV is certainly better for watching a Bluray disc for one very simple reason. Bluray players normally have two types of output, one is HDMI (the digital output) and the other will be component or composite (the analog outputs). For a variety of reasons, the high definition signal is only a…vailable on the HDMI output. One of the main reasons is that HDMI signals can be encoded to prevent the content being copied. The analog outputs cannot be protected in the same way and will only provide a standard definition signal. Although analog signals can deliver HD signals, manufacturers do not offer the facility. Therefore, although an analog TV can display a Bluray disc, it will only ever be in standard definition. To experience full resolution, the TV must have an HDMI connector which of course means that the television is a digital model. The TV should also be HD capable to obtain the best quality. (MORE)
No. The Wii only has a DVD drive and has no default DVD playback functionality, either.
It sounds like your player may be having some issues. Try these steps to fix it: 1. Unplug your Blu-ray player for 5 minutes, then plug it back in and try again. 2. Call the manufacturer of the player to ensure you have the latest updates. 3. Call the manufacturer of the player for service.
To watch a Bluray disc in high definition, an HDMI cable is needed. However, almost all Bluray players have an analog, standard definition output that can be connected to televisions that do not have HDMI inputs.
PlayStation 3 will Play Blu Ray discs, it will also upgrade the DVDs to 1080p and play the DVDs with much better quality than a player that does not have the upgrade capability. I no longer use my DVD player to play any of the DVDs and only use the PlayStation 3 to play everything. I use my computer… to record some shows while I am watching other shows. I then transfer them to DVD and also play them through the PS3. When I am watching the shows I am very impressed with how fast the PS3 can skip over the commercials in the fast forward at speeds of 1.5, 10, 30, and 120. It also has sound at the 1.5 speed and I have found than option useful. Because I have a Sony BR6 TV I don't even have to use a controller for a remote to play the DVDs, or purchase the special PS3 remote because my TV remote will work on the PS3 from the HDMI sync on the TV. I just insert a disc into the PS3 and the TV and Remote switch over to the PlayStation 3. I should mention that even though the PS3 will upgrade the DVDs the picture quality of the Blu Ray is even better than anything I have seen on my TV including all the HD broadcast of Movies and TV shows that are only at 720P.

Blu-Ray players will NOT work on standard definition TVs. They will only work on an HDTV and that requires an HDMI cable
Type your answer here... It should be nothing more than hooking up the HDMI cable from the HD tv to the DVD player.This cable delivers the video and the audio simultaneously.If it is an older DVD player like mine, I hooked up the video using a component cable which has three connections on each e…nd - red, blue, yellow then connect the audio using phono plugs.This cable has one red connection and one white.On the back of the DVD player there is an audio/out, the red goes on the left connection and the white goes to the right.The other end of that connects to the audio/in on the tv.Some cables such as Monster cable have a directional arrow on them.I don't think it matters.Monstercable seems to think it does.I hope this helped.

Yes you can. Virtually all Bluray players have an analog output which is standard definition. This can be connected to the video input of any television and you will see a standard definition image from a Bluray disc. The quality won't be as good as is on the disc of course but at least the disc wil…l play. It is normally possible to set up the HDMI connector to output a standard definition signal. This is probably not of much use as almost all televisions that have HDMI inputs will also accept high definition signals. It might also be worth pointing out that standard DVDs will also play on a Bluray player. Using the analog output from the player with a standard DVD playing will give the same quality of image as any standard DVD player. (MORE)
Most Blueray players have an analog output that delivers standard definition signals. If a high definition disc is played, the output will normally provide an SD version of the content. Using the analog output means that it is possible to use Blueray players on SD televisions. When an HD television …is installed, the HDMI port can be used to obtain HD video. Before purchasing a Blueray player, check that it has an analog output and that it provides a down converted signal of HD material on the analog ports. (MORE)
iPad does not support HD so Bluray cannot be played directly. There are methods for converting HD data to a resolution and bit rate that iPad will support but a conversion is required for each disc.
Bluray players will work with most televisions but an HD television is needed to see the content in HD quality. Blu-Ray players will only operate with a standard definition television using the analog outputs on the player.

Either the Blu-Ray player needs an update or needs to be looked at for technical difficulties
Almost all Bluray players have an anlog output as well as an HD HDMI output. The analog output will be composite, S-video or component and will output a standard definition signal. The SD signal should connect to any television, SD or HD. Remember that the signal will be in standard definition. The…re is no magic that changes the quality of the image into HD just because the original format was HD. (MORE)
There is no such thing as a Blu-ray DVD, they are exclusive video technologies. It would be like saying why can't my toaster teapot boil water? As to why your computer cannot read blu-ray discs, it is because it doesn't have a blu-ray reader installed. The same reason your old CD-ROM drive couldn…'t read DVD's. Just because it fits, doesn't mean it has the capability to play it. (MORE)
No, it doesn't. If the television has an HDMI input, it will handle HD signals and display them at the television's native resolution. For the best quality, the television will be a 1080 line resolution. If the television is a standard definition model, then it will need to use analog connections f…rom the player which don't support HD. Any disc will be displayed at standard definition only in this case. (MORE)
No, the Wii doesn't have a Blu-Ray drive built in and only outputs standard definition video. The PS3 is the only games console at present that will play BluRay discs.
Blu-Ray players normally have RCA jacks for analog outputs. It is these that can be used to connect to analog televisions but the signal will be standard definition rather than high definition.
I am afraid not . only the bluray player can play the normal blu-ray disc
No. But DVDs can be played by a Blu-Ray player thanks to its backwards compatibility feature
Yes, you can. Generally, Blu-rayPLayer could support DVD, BUT Dvd player couldn't support Blu-rayPlayer. Macgo Mac Blu-ray Player which is a good example.
No. Blu-Ray discs will only work in a Blu-Ray player. But DVDs can play in a Blu-Ray player. Blu-Rays are far more advanced in technology than DVDs and DVD players don't have the right type of laser to read Blu-Rays.
No. It has to be a blueray machine. Blueray machines are backward compatible, you can play standard DVDs and CDs. They are not forward compatible. The laser used in blueray machines, is significantly different. Normal DVD machines cannot see the blueray disk.
To watch in high definition, you must have an HD television with an HDMI connection. However, using the analog outputs from a Bluray player, any standard definition television can be used.
No. They will only play on Blu-Ray players, blu-ray enabled laptops, blu-ray enabled PC's and Playstation 3's
It is quite likely that the Bluray player is faulty. A badly aligned laser may still be able to read the larger DVD tracks but not the much finer tracks on a Bluray disc. Try some different Bluray discs. If none of them work, it might be time to get the player repaired or replaced.
Blu-Ray discs will only play on Blu-Ray players. But regular DVDs can be played on a Blu-Ray player due to the backwards compatibility feature
HD televisions with an HDMI connections are required in order to view the content in HD. Bluray players have analog outputs that can be connected to older, non HD televisions.
A DVD player cannot play a BluRay disc. A BluRay player can play both BluRay discs and DVDs.
Yes due to the backwards compatibility installed in every Blu-Ray player and PlayStation 3 (which also uses the Blu-Ray disc format)
No, you can't play blu-ray discs on a DVD player. You can however play DVDs with a blu-ray player.
Yes, as long as you have a 3D Vizio TV and a 3D blu-ray player.
