Can a standard DVD player play DVDs on a 4K TV without any compatibility issues?

A standard DVD player can play DVDs on a 4K TV without any compatibility issues, but the TV's upscaling capabilities will affect the video quality.

When playing a DVD on a 4K TV, the TV creates artificial pixels to fill in the missing resolution, which can lead to a softer image.

The larger the resolution of the TV, the more pixels need to be created artificially, which can affect video quality.

A 4K TV's upscaling is done by software, which can sometimes lead to a soft and poor image.

Playing a Blu-ray disc on a 4K TV uses software to determine what 3 out of every 4 pixels should display, resulting in a better image quality compared to DVDs.

DVD players can upscale the resolution of standard-definition DVDs to near-high-definition quality (720p) using built-in upscaling capabilities.

Setting the DVD player to match the HDTV's aspect ratio or screen size can improve video quality.

Connecting the DVD player to the HDTV via an HDMI cable instead of S-video or SCART can improve video quality.

Turning off the upscaling on the DVD player and letting the HDTV do the upscaling can also improve video quality.

Using a high-end 4K Blu-ray player can improve upscaling quality compared to a standard DVD player.

Some 4K TVs with AI upscaling capabilities can do a better job of upscaling DVDs than a standard DVD player.

Copying DVDs to ISO files and playing them on an Nvidia Shield Pro with great upscaling capabilities can improve video quality.
