I have an older TV, it is a Toshiba 42HDX82. I am trying to figure out if I buy a Blue Ray player like a Sony BDP-BX110, if I can hook it up and stream NetFlix, Pandora, Etc with the wirless internet in my home.

The Toshiba has a DVI/HDCP in port, also S Video and component ports but no HDMI port.

I have tried to figure out how to not only transport video but audio also. I want to use the large speakers that this Toshiba receiver has.

I don't have cable or satellite service.

Also, the Blue Ray player has a LAN port,so does this mean I need to hook up my modem into it or my laptop?

These are probably really dumb questions but I am not very electronic savy.

Thanks for any help anyone can give me.wink.gif

You are in the wrong forum. Try posting in the BD player forum in the Help Me Choose a Player thread.

Blu-Ray Player Forum:

Help Me Choose a Player thread:

You'll need an HDMI to DVI adapter and you'll also need to run either optical/coax (depending on what your TV has) to the TV for audio.
