Blue ray player & cable box

Blue ray player & cable box

I got a sanyo blue ray/DVD player at Walmart I asked about hooking up with my cable box & they said get the HDMI cable & plug it in the back of the box. I have an older TV with no connection for an HDMI cable. So I hooked it in the cable box like they said & it does not work. I need help to get this to work as I am trying to do some DVDs for Yoga to help me loose weight I need to be able to make this work.

Your Blu Ray doesn’t go through the cable box, it goes right to the tv. Does your old tv have matching components to the Blu-ray?

Re: Blue ray player & cable box

I'm having the same sort of problem with a cheap TV.  Different components, but same thing:  inputs and outputs don't match up.  Amazon and others have a wealth of adaptors that can make almost anything match.  Maybe something like this would help:
