It sounds like you do not have a high definition TV, and are connecting the player to an older styled standard definition set. If that is the case, your blu-ray player will not be showing off its audio and video quaity capabilities. I expect it will provide quality something like a regular dvd player on your TV.

The red, white and yellow cables do not transmit high-definition video. The red and white are for audio. The yellow is for standard-definition video.

Assuming that you are trying to connect this to an HDTV, you need to use an HDMI cable. It can carry both high-definition video and audio together.

If you don't have an HDTV, there's really no point in having Blu-ray. It's a high-definition video format intended for high-definition televisions.

To get the full benefit of blu ray you will. However if you continue the way you do, at least you will be ready for hi=def when you get the new tv.
Hell, even with low-def Composite cable is probably the worst way to view anything. I guess, excluding RF that is.
