I have the component cable and it's not given me any problems. Now I only have a 52" rear projection RCA HDTV 1080i but I'm not experiencing those issues. My images are very clear with and without the component cable. You may find that you have a bad cable, which could not effect your games that have a higher definition and graphics (wii games) but could show the effects a lot more so on these games with more cartoonish looking animations. You may find a world of difference in this other cable.
