We have a BD player, but I have not yet watched a single Blu-Ray movie on it.

Insert one end of hdmi cable into TV. Insert other end into BD player. Press play.

Yeah, I honestly don't get it. I mean signing-up and getting Netflix going is more complicated than that.

All the HDTV inputs were already connected to DVRs and other devices. We were afraid to disconnect anything, and could not find the HDMI cable.

Why do you care about my family's media problems anyway? Do you represent the Blu-Ray consortium?

My point is that we have plenty of stuff to watch, even without a cable subscription. Time shifting is far more important to us than video quality. TV shows are generally more entertaining than Hollywood movies and don't benefit from Blu-Ray. Widescreen format is silly. We have no idea how to rent Blu-Ray movies (see my question above about Redbox). When friends loan us a movie, it is always on DVD.

I don't know why we even have a BD player.
