    Lines of resolution has nothing to do with a DVD being able to operate with any given TV, unless you are talking about HD input and a progressive scan DVD player.

    The TV having the appropriate connections to hook up to, is very important, however. A basic DVD will hook to, and work with, nearly any TV that at least has composite or S-video input, preferably component video. Not too many can output to coax (cable), though there are adapters for some brands/models.

    however,
    A widescreen TV set will offer more resolution from most DVDs than a 4:3 ratio set.

    don, any TV that will accept a progressive signal from a DVD player will work. The lines of resolution is largely a number used just for marketing and is not exactly what you think it is. What you really need to decide is whether you want to buy a Widescreen or standard TV. You can get both that will accept a progressive scan signal.

    So, don't worry abuot the lines of resolution number, if the TV accepts a progressive scan signal then you should be fine.
