Older TV looking to purchase Blu-ray player

Reply Thu 11 Nov, 2010 08:51 pm
My TV is a few years old and still has the older/round coaxial type connections. I've researched the Blu-ray players and the cables are the newer flat "USB" type. Will the player still be compatible with my TV? Do I need an adapter of some sort. Our Direct box also has the older round connections. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Your old TV is unable to display the full resolution from a Blu-ray, so you are essentially wasting your money. You can probably down-convert the signal, but you'd be better off buying the cheaper standard DVD and using the cheaper DVD player.
