You DO NOT have to have an HDTV. This unit has the red/white/yellow RCA outputs to use with older TVs.

No you can use it on any type (it works on my moms tv and it's super old) you just won't get the full effect of blu ray or hd... It'll look like any other DVD. But if you're buying for streaming to Netflix or whatever be sure to have an Ethernet cord as this product is not wifi enabled.

You don't have to have an HD TV. But there is no point in having a blu-ray player on a standard definition TV. Your picture quality will look exactly the same with blu-ray as it does with DVD. So, no you don't have to have an HD TV, but it will not benefit you to own blu-ray unless you have an HD TV.

NO - To both questions. It does not record. You cannot connect wired speakers to the unit directly. you can use the Red & White RCA outputs to connect it to older surround sound systems that do not have a HDMI input, but you must have a seperate Surround Sound receiver to connect with the blu-ray player.

You will pay literally over 5 times this price for a DVD or Blu-ray recorder. Get a DVR through your cable or satellite provider if you want to record shows. DVD's and Blu-rays are not practical for recording your shows like a VCR that you could record on VHS over and over again on. You need a DVR. Trust me, for what you want it for you will definitely get your money's worth.
