    not getting 16:9

    i have a sony vega 42" widscreen tv about 1 yr old, set the wii to 16:9, but still getting the 4:3 picture. Do i just hit the "wide button" on the TV remote?.....i figured there was a permanent way to change the settings for that specific video input on the tv...most of the time it is automatic (xbox 360) but not for the wii....let me know if you have a sony tv and how u worked it

    You set the console to 16:9. The console will make everything "squishy" (stuff will appear tall and skinny) in 4:3 mode. Hit "Wide" and you'll have it!

    The thing about Wii is that it outputs a 4:3 signal but it forms it so that when stretching it, wide fixes it.

    Use "Full". Wide Zoom will crop edges, I think. I'm using a Panasonic set.

    You want the mode which stretches everything uniformly, and puts a 4:3 image edge to edge.

    Update: I looked it up.

    Full Mode: This mode stretches the picture horizontally to fill the screen;

    Wide Zoom: This mode enlarges the picture while the upper and lower parts of the picture are condensed to fit the screen.

    You definitely want "Full".

    i looked in my owners book and it said this:

    wide zoom-select ot enlarge the 4:3 picture, to fill the 16:9 screen, keeping the original image as much as possible.

    full-select to enlarge the 4:3 picture horizontally only, to fill the display area..

    so i guess its personal preference?

    The Wii will output the proper vertical height in 4:3 mode, so all you need is linear, horizontal stretching. "Full" will show you what Nintendo intends.

    Wide-zoom seems like it will crop off the top and bottom.

    How Wii's 16:9 mode works is that it crams more information into a 4:3 images, which you then stretch to get the proper aspect ratio. The "distorted" 4:3 image will have things appearing skinnier than they are. 16:9 stretching will bring them back to their normal ratio.

    Are you running directly into the TV, or is it going thur a reciever?
    What wires are you using, composite (the cable that came with it) or the upgraded HD cable?
    Are you playing a new Wii game, or playing a Game Cube game? The disc may not be formatted correctly

    You want the Wii set to 16:9, and the TV set to 16:9. The video format should be set to Full. Wide will make everyone look short and fat.

    If you have an upgraded set of wires, you can run the system at 480p, which will give you a true 16:9 image, and it will look great. That is as long as your TV has a component video input.

    That is if Nintendo ever re-releases the component cable *sigh* I think they seriously underestimated consumer demand for component support here in the states.

    More people have ED, HD, and advanced SD sets than Nintendo thinks.

    There are quite a few people with HD and ED sets. You may not know those people, but there are quite a few. I have a couple myself.

    True sports fans are very big on HD.
