Can You Play Your Old DVDs On A Blu-Ray
Standard DVDs and CDs play on all Blu-ray disc players and PlayStation3. The Blu-ray disc system uses the same 12 cm and 8 cm disc sizes, but playing a DVD on a HDTV you wont get HD picture cause DVD is a standard definition.
Even if your existing DVD player upscales to 1080p, it won’t look as good as a Blu-ray, since the content on the DVD is not HD, and it wont match the picture quality or clarity of true source content of a Blu-ray.
Blu-ray discs play on Blu-ray players, PlayStation3, or Blu-ray drives for computers and will not play on DVD players.
With the Sony BDP-S300 Blu-ray player you can get the most out of your existing DVD collection by having them upscaled to 1080p quality.
Your DVD’s will look and sound better than ever when you play them back on your Blu-ray disc player.
Why Do You See Black Bars On The Top And Bottom Of Your Screen
Blu-ray movies are delivered in widescreen. Since HDTV’s are also widescreen format, generally your Blu-ray movies fill up the screen. However, depending on the movie, sometimes you’ll see small black bars on your screen. The bars are smaller than you would see when watching a widescreen movie on a standard definition TV.
