I am a novice here (so don't laugh.) I just got a new Sony Blu-Ray and need to know the best way to connect it to the TV/Uverse box in the bedroom (what to plug where.) There are no other components connected there. The Blu-Ray has WiiFii capability and the router is in another part of the house.

Something I missed when I posted (a week ago!), is the fact part of your initial question was about a network connection. Most EVERY piece of equipment (Set-top-box, DVD player, Apple TV/Google TV) and the TV itself will have a network port anymore. Depending on what piece of equipment you connect via your network, you will get different results. Most will have Netflix capability, Pandora, and, possibly an Internet browser. All that's necessary is a network cable connection (Cat-5) from your U-verse modem to the piece of equipment. The (HDMI?) cable that runs from the piece of equipment to the TV will also, then, carry whatever service you choose and it will appear on the TV.

maybe i should start a new post, but i have a similar problem.
i'm trying to connect my sony blu ray bdp s3100 to at&t uverse cable box via HDMI. so i make the connection, but i can't get a picture.
i have a samsung tv, and i'd prefer to just go straight to the tv. but this is an older model and doesn't have hdmi.
i don't consider myself a novice, but maybe i am. what am i missing?? thanks for any help!

i've been searching online for days for an answer, but this is the first forum that gave me an answer that makes sense.

For the past couple of years, since my TV is old enough it doesn't even produce 1080p (it does have 1080i, however, and most every piece of video generating equipment can handle that), I have used a converter called "HD Fury III." It can handle either 1080i or 1080p from HDMI converted to component, which I have to assume your TV has - if it's HD, I can't imagine it not having at least that! It's (lots) more expensive than the converter mentioned about, but it's output is worth the money. It's allowed me to watch a quality picture on my old TV with the very latest video generating equipement. That includes a Blu-ray player at 1080i , another DVD player at the same resolution, U-verse at 1080i and Tivo, also at 1080i. I know there's a difference between 1080i and 1080p, but the HD Fury makes it a lot less noticeable.
Here's a link to the HD Fury III information: http://www.hdfury.com/products/hdfuryiii-specs/
If you look, and consider buying, make sure you go far enough down the order page to find the HD Fury III. They have their very latest on top and make you look for it.

After recording in Xfire the quality drops while editing in sony vegas, at first the quality is quite good, but then i go to sony vegas and hit preview the quality drops alot. Is it because its just preview and its different after it is done?

I have a video creating program called Pinnacle Studio, version 12. I can connect my camcorder to it and take video from that and put it on my computer, and edit it in any way i want. But it doesn't save in a format that YouTube will let me upload it in. How can I change the format of a video to a YouTube acceptable format?
