Do you need a special HDMI cable for Blu-ray player?
If you want to connect a new 3D Blu-ray player to a new 3D TV, you’ll just need a high-speed HDMI cable, which is already recommended for connecting 1080p TVs and Blu-ray players. (HDMI Standard cables are generally sufficient for handling video with up to 720p or 1080i resolutions.)
Is HDMI the same as Blu-ray?
These features come standard on every new Blu-ray player, even the lowest priced models. HDMI is the connection that allows you to transmit a 1080p video signal and a high-resolution audio signal from your Blu-ray player to your HDTV and/or home entertainment system.
Can you use a Blu-ray player with any TV?
All Blu-ray players have HDMI. You can use the component outputs with your current TV and the HDMI output with your future one, so the player will be usable indefinitely. Some older HDTVs have only one set of component inputs that work with HDTV signals.
