I just bought the Wii component cable yesterday. I was so eager to get it after hearing so good feedback on how everything (especially Zelda) looks so much better. Ok I plugged it in and Everything looked ok, including Wii sports, but Zelda... It's looking way too dark. When the game starts at the default brightness settings I was using, the "grayscale boxes" at the beginning look all black.
After experimenting a bit I noticed all the dark areas look way too dark and all the bright areas look way too bright. If I raise the brightness of my tv so I can see the dark areas (and see the grayscale boxes), all the bright areas start to look white... I tried to tweak my tv but it's no good, everything looks too dark and if I try to raise the brightness just a bit all the bright areas are light-struck, and I can't play like this. I'll have to plug back in the composite cable to play.
It could be my tv, or my cable, or my wii or the zelda disc... I just hope it can be fixed!
I'm trying to figure out if anyone else experiences the same problem because after giving it a go on Google I didn't find a thing.
Any tips would be most appreciated as well.
I have a 32" Samsung LE32R32B TV with 1000:1 contrast.
