Why wont my samsung dvd-vr357 play blu ray disks


Educated guess is you need a blu ray player. I have several very expensive Pioneer Elite DVD players and they cannot play blu ray. Blu ray is a multi level glorified DVD which you need at least a blu ray player to play in almost all cases.

You can play dvds on a blue ray but not the reverse in most cases. If you play a dvd on a blu ray player it kicks the video up to HD for the DVD.

Hi, is the directv box giving out 1080? There is an option on the box to select between 480, 720, 1080.
Also the tv has the same option.

My tv shows the message mode not supported to a new blue ray player


Make sure the Blu-Ray player is set for 720p or 1080i only as this TV will not recognize 1080p or even the 24fps mode that some Blu-Ray players have.

Check that the player is set-up in to a mode that is supported by your TV set. You should consult the user manuals of both the TV set and the player to follow through. Another solution which may be easier is to colll the Samsung service support.

No owners manual can't get new blue ray dvd player to work on tv


Here is the manual:

When using the HDMI connections you may have to tell the DVD to output to that port.  Also you may have to connect additional sound cables from the DVD output to the TV.
