Nope, you need a blu ray player to play blu rays :) They are still very expensive >_>

What is the make/model number of your dvd player?
#2
Oh....Not sure what the use is in a upscale dvd player as all you play is the same dvds, right? Its the silvercrest one from Lidl. only paid £15 as they were giving £5 vouchers for £30+ spend. So got mother one.

£15 was a good buy

Lol course it wont :) Why would anyone spend £150+ on a blu-ray player if they did.

Get a PS3 its the best blu-ray player avalible imo.

The use is purely to do with HDTVs.

If your Mum has a High Def TV, the upscaling DVD player will make better use of the high definition technology that's in the TV by displaying the content in an increased resolution.

Standard DVD resolution is 720 x 576, which can look pretty blocky on a HDTV. Once you start to output this at 1080i, edges look a lot smoother and the overall picture quality is improved.

No - the USB port on it will be to connect USB devices such as memory sticks etc which have images or movies on them.

Lol sorry :thumbsup:

Yeah it probably will. Does it say DIVX or XVID or AVI on it anywhere?

mind you the 1 u bought does it have a hdmi port i presume it does to output 1080


That's almost as daft as question as the OP's (no offence OP)!

If it's an upscaling DVD player, it'll have HDMI output.

Super laymans answer! thanks for that, I thought I had wasted my money (all £15) for a sec. Yeah we both have 50 inch ones so a good buy:thumbsup:

i just wondered for £15 :thumbsup:


It surprised me too - upscaling DVD players have REALLY come down in price now.

It's shocking to think the first DVD player I bought (Samsung DVD-709) cost me £180 ..... :?

If you have flash drive download a xvid film and dump it on there and see what happens :thumbsup:

Yep, per my previous post it will allow you to put xvid/divx encoded movies onto a USB stick and watch them directly off it.
