    My Wii games look worse in HD

    I haven't posted on this forum in a long time (not that I was ever a huge poster), but I'm getting back into the Wii in anticipation of SSB, but I have one problem that's frustrating me.

    My Wii looks terrible on my Samsung HDTV.

    Yes, I'm pluggin in the cords right, I have everything set up correctly, but games on my hdtv which is about two years old look terrible. Jagged edges appear in places i didn't think possible, and the graphics are reallllly disappointing.

    When I plug the Wii into my much older, normal TV, everything looks fine, and there are fewer jagged edges and everything is just...tidier on the screen.

    I need some advice, because I am someone who enjoys quality graphics in their games (kill me now), and I feel like I'm getting cheated out of the best picture I can get.

    I have a 480p cable, and I'm considering buying a new HDTV to play Wii on, and need any advice you can dish out.

    What type of HDTV should I get? LCD? Plasma?
    What brand?
    Any other advice?

    Anyways, I didn't know whether to put this here or in the Nintendo hardware section, since it's not really a problem with my Wii. Thanks for listening, and I'm glad to be back.

    it's not your tv. it's just the crappy wii graphics and 480p is not true hd so you should expect some jaggies there.
    i know, everyone is going to flame me and tell me how i have never played on an hdtv before, 480p is hd, and i'm and idiot and then before i come here to check on what people have posted, my post will get deleted.

    So you're saying non HD looks better than HD because 480p isn't true hd?

    Would it be better than to buy a newer non-hd tv that has component inputs? I read in another thread that component cables improve non hdtvs as well, but the tv has to have inputs for them.

    I have a '46 Samsung DLP tv and my Wii games look fine. I don't even run the component cables. I think the size and perhaps the type of tv have a lot to do with it. I have a friend who has a '56 DLP tv and some of his Wii games look terrible; particularly his Mii channel.

    i really don't agree... i mean, there is a reason for 720p, 1080p and all that junk. it's not like you're going to get the same resolution of a ps3 on 1080p on your wii only because you have a bigger tv.
