Blu Ray Player question.

Hi guys and girls, mum and her bf want to watch my blu rays so was thinking about getting a blu ray player for downstairs. We dont have a HDTV downstairs tho but theyre not bothered about picture quality they just have none of their own films.

Just wondered can blu ray players be used with standard definition TV's?

Any help would be highly appreciated, and of course happy new year!

I don't see any reason why not? The main question though is how you gonna couple them both. (depending on bluray players output and your TV inputs)

Edit: Component video should be fine.

why dont you just buy the same films in DVD? it would probably work out cheaper.

Some Blu ray players have scart and comosite (3 phono) output..

You need to check whats on the back of the blu ray player..

ive got a fair few blueys so would prob cost more than a cheap blu ray player to buy them all, plus think the less space I can take up the better.

LG BD350 Blu Ray Player for [COLOR="Blue"]£89.99[/COLOR] (Half price) from Argos. You have the component output there which you can use to connect your SD TV.

You can download the user manual from LGs website.

You realise it will be the same quality as a DVD, just more expensive.


should look better even if its not being displayed in hd.

It might only do 720/1080 over component though so it won't work anyway.

OP wants to use a SD TV not HDTV. So 1080 is out of question anyway.

That isn't component output anyway is it, it's composite.

lol of course, I'd be selling my HDTV and running down the charity shop to find an old one otherwise!

It will cost me more to buy all my films in dvd and take up pointless space. There not bothered about quality so that why Im asking dude.:thumbsup:

Did you even read what I said, I said if it onlt sends 720/1080 over component, the TV might not be able to down scale it, so you'll either get out of range or only a section of the picture. That's why I said it might not work.


It's not a component output though is it?

Yup, tis composite, my mistake, someone earlier mentioned component, got mixed up.


It is composite. Sorry my mistake. :roll:
