HD movie player

I purchased two Discovery sets that are in HD format. I can't get these to play on my Panasonic Blu-Ray. Shoud they play on it? If not, what player do I need to play them. In fine print it said they are non-returnable, so need to find something they will work on.
Thanks,
Mary Moser

Greetings moseracc,

If the box sets are HD DVD, then you will need an HD DVD player for them play on. Some stores may still carry players in this format however a few months ago, the switch in the industry was made to the Blu-Ray format.

I hope this helps!

Thank you,

Dorothy

Which dvd player is good to be purchased?? I use original DVDs and copied ones also


I like the kind that can play numerous formats and has a USB slot for movies downloaded from the internet. Sony has always been my player of choice. Panasonic is a good one as well.

My BD530 player doesn't play all movies clearly. Some come cover good others re all snowy


When properly connected to a High Definition display or TV, Blu-Ray Disks (BD) should play crystal clearly. Inserting an old "non-Blu-Ray" disk (or the original "DVD") in the Blu-Ray player will display a comparatively "fuzzy" picture. This is the difference between High Definition and Standard Definition. A "BD player" can not "upgrade" the picture quality on DVDs to that of a BD or High Definition picture.

Rent, purchase or choose Blu-Ray Disks (BD) whenever a choice is offered to view the High Definition version of a movie or video. Selecting the DVD version will provide the lower quality or Standard Definition version of the same movie or video.

Check the covers or disk itself to determine if the movie or video is in DVD or BD format. That will tell you what you can expect for picture quality.

I hope this helps & good luck! Please rate my reply - thank you.

Surround sound for Blu Ray on older Sony receiver


Hello, it sounds to me like the receiver doesn't support the sound format being sent from the blu-ray player. This is because the blu-ray disc would have HD encoded sound such as DTS HD Master Audio or Dolby True HD. Most receivers have not been fitted with these sound formats untill quite recently. The reason for the menu sound playing correctly would be for the PCM (Pulse-code Modulation) which sends simple two channel digital sound supported by all digital receivers. It may be possible to use Dolby Pro Logic or similar formats to give a surround feel, but the only way to get true surround sound in this way would be decode the sound externally and input it through several phono cables into the multichannel input, however blu-ray sound comes in 7.1 so the receiver would need to be able to accept this to get the full effect. If it is possible, see if the blu-ray player will allow downsampling to a surround sound format that your receiver can accept such as Dolby Digital or DTS. Hope this helps.

I have a DVD player Panasonic DMR ES20D which is working OK but I have just been on the Amazon site to make DVD a purchase and the site has a warning in red reading " Warning this HD-DVD will not play...


Even though you have an HD TV, the DVD player is not HD-capable. You will have to upgrade to an HD set to use those discs. (You might consider that Sony's system, "Blu-Ray, is now the format winner in this case, and therefore try to find your disc selection in the Blu-Ray format.)...accordianman

HD DVD versus Blu Ray Disc


At the beginning of the year, Toshiba announced that it was dropping production of HD DVD drives. Warner Bros. then announced that it would not produce more movies on HD DVD, and the rest have basically followed, generally noting the demise of the ongoing "battle" between HD & Blu-Ray.

The word I got back in the first quarter was that while HD players that were already out there would continue to play the existing movies, but that new movies should be expected to come out only on Blu-Ray. It is very much like the long-ago battle between VHS & Beta on videotape formats.

It is not good news for those who purchased HD drives / players, but obviously there is no way for the consumer to affect this movement. As for movies that were exclusively produced on HD DVD, the decision as to reproduction on Blu-Ray will obviously be another uncontrollable decision made by the responsible corporation. It will likely depend on the perceived level of consumer demand for each individual product, and whether they think that enough people will purchase another copy (probably even more costly) of the same movie.

On the other hand, if you have HD DVD movies and a player, they should continue to play for you just as they have from the beginning. But when they inevitably stop, break, wear out, etc., it will mean Blu-Ray replacement if you still desire that type of content. If you have a relatively recent purchase, most of the retailers have some type of policy for return/replacement following the announcement of the discontinuation of HD DVD. Others, particularly drive manufacturers, have stated that they will support the drives through the published warranty periods (and some may even be gracious enough to extend them), but that further updates/upgrades will not be made. It might be worthwhile for you to check this out if you want to pursue potential reimbursement or other action.
