Poor DVD Video Quality

The Genesis DVD video quality is pretty bad. Is it just my DVD player or do other see this also. Is there a fix? I tried new video cable but that didn't help. The picture is very pale and lack color and contrast. The Furion TV does a fair job off the antenna so it's not the TV. Your thoughts? Thanks in advance.

AV, no other choice with the Genesis .yellow, red, white. The TV has a choice of AV, HDMI, Component and maybe S-Video but AV seems to be the only thing that I get a picture with?

Mine is as crisp as the DVD should be but I am connected via the HDMI cable.

What model Genesis?

If it's a Genesis 3.0, there should be a HDMI cable from Genesis to TV. TV should be set to HDMI input. If that doesn't work Genesis has a video adjustment, try adjusting that. Hope this helps.

Thanks, I'll look again but I didn't see HDMI. I didn't know it had a video adjustment either, thanks.

TT - FYI the Sony BDP S3200 "Home" Bluray player runs off of a 12 volt DC power brick. That means you can run it right from your 12 volt battery. It outputs HDMI. Good little player, many available used in the $40 range.

Besides the audio stream through the HDMI connection, it only outputs a digital stream (SPDIF) through a co-ax connection, so no 2 wire analog audio.
