Question Blu-ray player on CRT TV

I need some expertise. I wanna buy a blu ray player (probably the Samsung BD-C5500) and I also plan a buy an HD TV sometime next year, but for the time being I still have my CRT TV. So my question is, will I be able to play my dvds and blu-rays on this tv ? It's a Philips 21PT5409 01, I can't give you the link being a newbie, but you'll find the details on google.

Thank you.

Yes, blu-ray players have composite video output (the yellow RCA connector cable) and the red & white stereo RCA connector audio output, which seems to be the only input connection that TV has. But the video output will only be 480i, so the video quality won't be any better than DVD for blu-ray.

Default Blu-Ray Player on CRT TV

What I would do is wait until you can get both the HDTV and BLU-RAY PLAYER together rather then one at a time. Here's the reason why stores will be having their after christmas sales like bestbuy and electronic stores and most likely will sales whr you can buy both a hdtv and blu-ray player together. So my advice is wait and see what kind of after christmas sales stores are having on electronics.

Agree with Fredreed... Wait and get both, it is waste of money to buy BR if you don't have the equipment to exploit it.
