    Got my Wii component cables today

    Well they came today and I am not sure if there is a difference really. I am going to snap a few shots of Zelda and you guys tell me if you see a difference.

    480i

    480p


    480i

    480p


    Ok after seeing them like this I guess the 480p does show more clearer detail. Even the colors are brighter. You can find the component cables on ebay for like $15. I bought an off brand.

    I was thinking about getting some component cables today..But My tv iSN'T HD ( I'm Quite happy with a normal flat screen TV, i honestly dont care about more Pixels or whatever) So , do i need a HD tv to use component cables?

    Enoch was right.

    It depends on the TV. Some non-HD TV's can display a regular definition progressive scan signal (480p). You'd have to check you tv's owner's manual.

    Regular def. TVs can't display 480p. Standard def can only display 480i or even lower. EDTV(enhanced) displays 480p. HDTV displays either 720p or 1080i. lots of people call 1080p 'True HD'

    I have a 32" HDTV that supports up to 1080i and when I installed the component cable, the image became jagged. I don't know if it's really worth the extra few bucks to pick up the component cable to play at 480p because in all honesty, to me it didn't make a great difference except for the fact that it was not as blurred, but more jagged.

    Er, I don't mean to offend anyone here, but those piccies look bloody awful compared to what I'm getting on a standard RGB Scart connection !

    Maybe it's the camera I dunno, but mine seems a lot sharper than that and I'm not even using component cables.

    Is it just me ?
