Another thing about purchasing a Blu-ray player now
Sony BDP S-350 rear panel
The unit will provide a downconverted signal for standard definition televisions via S-Video, or composite video out.
Yes it costs more than a DVD player but basically you are HDTV-ready for when you purchase an HDTV. And you are also future-proofing your growing video library say if you purchase the Star Trek XI Blu-ray
in a couple of months you won't have to feel like you are double dipping to move from DVD to Blu-ray of that Trek film after you purchase a HDTV and then a Blu-ray player in a few years.
and you also get access to the BD-Live features that are included with Blu-ray disc
purchases that you don't get with DVDs.
Not so fast... Far as I know ALL BD players have said outputs. However, Not all movies are set up to be downconverted. It's not a BD requirement for movies to be able to shoot out of the composite.
How many lights do YOU see?
