Part 1: Direct Way – Play Blu-ray on Smart TV via Smart TV Blu-ray Combo
Connecting Blu-ray to TV is a traditional way to play Blu-ray on TV. The same method applies to playing Blu-ray on Smart TV, which means you can connect a Blu-ray player to Smart TV to create an Smart TV Blu-ray combo for playing Blu-ray on Smart TV.
Before we connect a Blu-ray player to Smart TV, it is better for us to figure out why we need to connect a Blu-ray player to Smart TV. There are mainly two reasons. Take a look below.
– Watching Blu-ray movies is a popular pastime in many households. If that’s the case in your home, you obviously want them to look as good as possible.
– Many newer Blu-ray players can upconvert the video signal before they send it to your TV, transforming it to a resolution that more closely matches your screen’s. Although an upconverted picture isn’t true high-def, it usually delivers a noticeably improved image. And to see that upconverted signal, you’ll usually need to make an HDMI connection to your TV.
Now we can start to connect a Blu-ray player to Smart TV. If you opt for HDMI, you may be able to pass both your audio and video signals via a single cable. On the other hand, if you choose component video, S-video, or composite video, you’ll need to make an additional stereo RCA audio connection to your TV. To hear the Dolby® Digital and DTS® surround sound encoded on most Blu-rays, you’ll need to make a digital audio connection to a home theater receiver. Depending on your Blu-ray player’s and receiver’s available connectors, you’ll probably want to use either an optical digital or coaxial digital audio connection.
After connecting Blu-ray to TV, you can start to play Blu-ray on your Smart TV in an easy and convenient way.
