I have a sony bravia tv and a sony blu ray player and I have noticed that standard def features on some blu rays such as trailers and certain making of's look much worse quality than a dvd. They can be fuzzy images with jagged edges. does anybody know why this is or a way if improving this? or is it common?

Most likely the issue is from the player upscaling the DVDs, but not being able to do so on the Blu extras due to the way BluRays are encoded.

Have you tried outputing the signal at something other than 1080P and letting the tv do the upscaling?

That's definitely an issue for the PS3 -- upconverting DVDs but unable to upconvert standard-def material on BDs.
