You should purchase a DVD player that is especially designed to play HD DVDs. You will not be able to get fine results from a traditional DVD player otherwise. Moreover, HD DVDs can also be played on different gaming consoles, if they support HD DVDs. So, if you own a gaming console with HD DVD logo on it, then you do not need to spend your money on buying a HD DVD player.
To get proper HD results from an HD DVD, you do not only need a HD DVD player, but also, you should have a television that is HDTV. If you have a normal TV, then it will not be able to display HD results. Therefore, you will have to connect your HD DVD player with an HDTV to get the best results.
In order to connect an HD DVD player and an HDTV, you will need HDMI cables, as they make sure that all the HD audio and video signals are properly passed from the player to the TV. As a result, you get the best audio and picture results on your HDTV.
Once you have all the necessary equipments, you can connect your HD DVD player with your HDTV, using HDMI cables. Turn the power on for both the devices and turn your HDTV to HDMI mode.
Insert HD DVD in your HD DVD player and press the “Play” Button on the player, or on HD DVD player’s remote control. You will now be able to see a clear difference in the results, compared to those in traditional DVDs.
