    short answer :

    1: blue ray is a format, blue ray movie is high definiation.it provides full 1080p resolution(19201080), DVD is 480p. If you watch on small TV, it doesn't make a different.
    2: HDMI is a interface to connect your TV to your player or AV. With HDMI , you can transmit sound and video over a single cable. without HDMI, you need separate cables to transmit sound and video.

    Long answer :

    too long. google it. or read the white paper.

    one very important note : dvd player CANNOT play blue ray disc. dont get scam by salesperson. majority of them dont know what they talking about.

    here's a link about blue ray :

    your TV must also have HDMI port if you want to use HDMI cable. new TV usually have them, old one dont have.

    actually very easy to understand, blue ray is better than DVD , no contest. no one buy DVD player nowaday, since blue ray player can also play DVD.

    if you want to watch higher resolution movie, you have to use HDMI, no choice...


    you can dont bother about reading the wiki, just go ahead and buy blue ray player and HDMI, now manufactures are moving into this technology. hence, you cant go wrong.

    but like i said, your TV must able to support. if you are using AV, check if it is compatible or not.


    if you still dont understand, please feel free to ask.

    Just remember that HDMI is an Audio/Video transmission via cable to your amp or tv.

    DVD and Blu Ray will have this output to your amp.
    Amp is to amplify the audio and decoding of .ac3 and .dts for various audio format depending on the disc provide what, and of course, your amp to project the sound.

    With the HDMI on DVD, it does help up on upscaling via amp. Basically for FULL HD TV.

    That's one reason why a lot of hardcore enthusiast prefer Oppo BDP83.


    Just remember, Blu-Ray consists of various wav format like dts-HD Master Audio, Dolby Tru HD, Dolby Digital, Pro-Logic IIz, etc...
    These are surcode provide in BD, whereby the amp, will decode and generate the surround out.

    For DVD, usually Dolby Digital and dts encoded.

    All these sound are basically just .wav, it is the encoding that make the different.
