Blu-Ray players and High Definition DVD Upscaling players will only show their full resolution when connected to a High Definition TV via an HDMI lead. These are widely available both online and at electronic appliance stores and can be obtained from many online retailers for a lot less than in regular shops.

Don't pay extra for "high quality" leads as they make absolutely no difference. HDMI leads carry digital data only so the cheapest ones do exactly the same job to the same standard as the "gold plated, oxygen free, blah, blah, blah" ones which get sold to those with far more money than sense.

I hope that my speedy and free answer has been of assistance and has saved you money; please take a moment to rate my reply.

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.

My memorex combo dvd & vhs player is not working right. can you help me? the vhs player works fine, but the dvd player display's a split screen on the tv with a large yellow box with the word PSCAN....


PSCAN is a short form for Progressive Scan - a line scanning format used for High Definition TV. Standard TVs use Interlaced scanning. On your DVD/VHS player, the VHS is an analogue signal recorded in interlaced mode so is fine for a standard TV. The DVD is a digital signal and cazn be processed for progressive scan output in order to produce a better picture on a High definition TV (or a TV capable of handling progressive scan). If you cannot to your TV via the HD outputs then you should be able to set the DVD player to output interlaced instead of progressive scan.

I have ab Acer LCD TV AT3201W and in the manual it says that it is HDTV Ready. What does this mean?


HDTV ready means that your TV is capable of displaying a high definition picture. A standard television broadcast is shown in 480i. High definition starts at 720i. Only an HD ready TV is capable of showing a picture that is 720 or above. So, if a person wants to upgrade to high definition offered by their satellite or cable company, or they want to enjoy a new Blue Ray disk player, they have to have a TV that is HD ready.
I hope I've provided you useful assistance and that this information allows you to make an informed decision as to how to proceed from here. Please be sure to vote on my response. I hope I've earned a good rating from you today.

How to connect blue ray disc player to rca rear projection tv


Unfortunately, there are a couple potential problems. First of all, if you RCA rear projection tv is fairly old and is not a High Definition tv, you may not have an hdmi, dvi, or component connector cables inputs. Without these, you are left connecting your blu-ray only by the standard yellow (video), along with the audio (red and white) rca cables... either way, the High Definition portion of the blu-ray won't work with a non-High Definition tv. It may be time to buy an HD capable tv to use your blu-ray effectively...

How to get a high definition Picture??


Hi, first of all you need a high definition source. I'm not sure if your cable box is HD but lets take it as an example. The component leads which you are using isn't 'true' HD video quality, what you need is a hdmi cable from your source to your TV.

Your cable box maybe HD with a HDMI output, if it is then you need the lead to come out of the cable box into your tv's HDMI input using a HDMI lead. Then you switch your TV's source to the HDMI input and it then should be producing a HD quality picture, but to truly get the full HD experience you may want to subscripe to a HD channel or purchase a blueray player becasue most cable TV channels are upscaled to HD and the definition is not as good as on a blue ray disc or a true HD channel.

So in conclusion the cable and input you are using is not designed for HD input. I believe your TV is HD, check for HDMI inputs or DVI inputs.

Hope this explains your problem

HDMI connectors..Where are they?


Greetings Jazzne1,

Looking at your users manual your television is "HD-Ready" which means it will be able to display images in an high definition resolution. But because of the age of this unit HDMI was not a standard format to provide the HD signal.

You should be able to connect an HD video source to your television with the Y, Pb, Pr Component connectors. The downside to this is most standard up-scanning DVD players available will only up-scan through the HDMI connector, but you should be able to connect HD digital broadcast boxes and cable and satellite services with these connections

Regrettably there really isn't a way to install an HDMI connector on a television "after market".

I hope this helps.
Jon

Hi-def dvd


This is not a High Definition DVD player, it does upscale a regular DVD to HD resolution, but that's just an electronic trick.

Also, Toshiba has abandoned the HD-DVD standard (did you find the discs on sale?), you'd need to find a BluRay player (like the Playstation 3) to play high definition DVD's.

CAN I SAVE MY HD TAPES TO DISC AND PLAY BACK AS HIGH DEFINITION?


At this point, unless you have a blu-ray or HD-DVD burner in your computer (and equivalent player), then you can't save HD to a DVD and have it play back in a regular DVD player. You should be able to transfer the HD video through firewire to the computer, but you might have to wait for a while until you can burn them to HD compatible DVDs. The only other option that I know of is to encode the HD video using a DivX codec (http://www.divx.com/) and just burn the file itself to the DVD, then if your DVD player can play DivX files, then you should be able to play it back on that.
