    For a mere pittance you can buy a UHD disc player at Costco, here's a link...not sure if the price will show but it's $139.99: Costco Wholesale

    Future proof yourself!

    Update: I think way back on the thread one of you suggested going out from the DVD player straight to the TV. Just straight out yellow to yellow AV port. It worked. I had been going component out of the DVD into the receiver, then component out of the receiver into the TV. Sorry for all the fuss and thanks for all your help!

    I’d get a new player. In a heart beat. No way I’d downgrade all picture quality on all my discs for this. You are getting terrible video quality out of that player. Does the tv have hdmi?

    Yes it does. Are you familiar with this DVD player? What does a new one have that this doesn't? This DVD player has HDMI also

    What DVD player? I don't see a link to your DVD player in this thread. What you will get in a new UHD player is the ability to play BDs and UHD discs. A much better picture and better audio (I think). For the price, what are you waiting for?

    That Denon DVD-557 is a dinosaur compared to today's players. Take Rich's advice and upgrade to either a Blu-ray or 4K Ultra HD player. They're not that expensive and technologically run rings around that antique you're using now. Here's some examples......Sony BDP-S3700 Blu-ray player $59.99......Sony UBP-X800 4K Ultra HD player $159.99......Samsung BD-J5100 Blu-ray player $59.99......Samsung UBD-M8500 4K Ultra HD player $159.99. There are many other models to choose from. The one's I posted are the least expensive.

    If you finally decide to upgrade, I'd strongly suggest the Samsung UBD-KM85c that I linked to in a previous post on this thread. They sold for ~ $400 when introduced. I'm gonna grab one as soon as NF starts renting UHD discs.

    I have a bunch of Samsung BD players, never any problems with them. I have one Sony BD player, not nearly as good as the Sammys, I think. But it's old, I have no idea how good the new sets are.

    I purchased a Sony ES UBP-X1000ES 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray player to compliment my Sony STR-ZA5000ES AVR and Sony XBR-55X900C 4K Smart Ultra HDTV. Can honestly say it supersedes any of the current Samsung players.

    I'll never have anything but a Sammy, won't be able to tell. My Samsung 4K sets don't seem to like anything attached to them but a Sammy device altho they've kinda accepted the ATVs and FTVs...kinda, there's still a spat or two a week.

    Now if the Sony 4K set I bought would have worked better...

    it would be interesting to know details (without that your opinion is not based on real comparison relevant parameters), but it would go too far offtopic - need open a new thread for the discussion

    I've been using Sony ES audio/video equipment for many years. Outstanding quality and performance. The ES series is in a league all it's own. Way above the regular Sony line of audio/video equipment.

    Can't use the color palette again, what I highlighted was what I expected to be able to say about the 4K Sony I bought and returned. Never thought I would have to do that with a Sony TV set.
