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.

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.
