Blu Ray player help

So I have situation where I have an old television connected to a uverse box via coaxial cable (its the only input on the tv). Is there any way I could connect a Blu Ray player to the uverse box (say via HDMI or component) and then to the televsion?

No, there is no way of doing what you are asking for.

Fair enough, figured I'd take a shot. Thanks for the reply.

kylilin - Probably time for you to consider a new TV. Flat panels are readily available, even used, low prices & you can take advantage of your input devices.

Your TV has only a coax input?? No yellow RCA jack?? That is really old.

The blue ray jumps two levels of technology. First there is COAX (RF), then composite (yellow RCA jack), the s-video, then component & HDMI.

Your blue ray needs HDMI to maximize value. Probably does not even have anything lower. Many years ago there was a very inexpensive RF generator for those games that only had a composite output. But, that jumps only one level.

If either the TV or the blueray has a composite jack, you can probably come up with a converter, but it is really time for new TV.
