I've decommissioned the DVD player
 
Well, with the release of "Star Trek" yesterday I've decided to decommission my standard DVD player as I bought it on Blu-Ray. My TV only has two component inputs and up until this decision they were occupied by my DVD player and my cable box.

With the purchase of this DVD I've decided to hook my PS3 (which is my Blu-Ray Player) up to the TV with component connectors. My SD DVD player remians unconnected to my TV. :( I may reconnect it using RCA/Composite connectors at somepoint but there may-be little point.

Not sure I'm completely switched over to Blu-Ray yet it may depend on the movie if I get it or not (for consistancy I will continue to collect TV series on DVD) on Blu-Ray but since the PS3 (and all BD players) will play DVDs and even up-converts them a bit, well, time to upgrade.

Sigh. DVD, you served us well.

How'd you have the PS3 connected before?

The RCA/Composite cable that comes with it.

Once you got the PS3, why even keep a standard def DVD player? Since as you already pointed out, the PS3 does fine in that regard.

Probably heating issues. I mean, when I had my XBOX 360, I still had my DVD player because the XBOX would overheat. The thing is, even with that precautionary measure it still overheated and failed. Twice. :rolleyes:

Really? I've left my PS3 on for days on end (because I forgot about it), and it has never never overheated.

Silly J. Allen.

Oh, then it's just XBOX 360 that sucks. I stand corrected. :D

Also PS3 doesn't equal Xbox 360.

PS3. It only does everything........ except melt itself.

But if you read some of the video game comments on this board, when the PS3 breaks, it's because it's a piece of junk. When the 360 overheats, it's an honor and a privilege for you to pay full price to buy another one and help out Microsoft. :)

Well, yes, but one shouldn't assume that just because the XBOX overheated that a PS3 would do the same.

You really need to get an HDMI cable.

That was my point.
