    I have a question (off topic): I have a upconverter dvd player. What is better: 1080i or 720p? If it matters, I have a Hi def LCD TV (Vizio 37").

    Yeah yeah, I understand that Nintendo is into gameplay, not graphics. But if I can squeeze out as much graphical power as I can on my Wii (short of buying an HDTV), I'll do it. I got a Wii because I thought that the new controls would be awesome for FPS games (who else here is looking forward to Metroid Prime 3???). But I really need to squeeze some graphical power out of that thing because right now my five-year-old Xbox has graphics that kick the crap out of the Wii's...on an s-video connection. I guess the games will just have better graphics as time moves on, that's what always seems to happen on consoles.

    Yep, you are correct. Glad someone cleared that up.

    I like to call component "Digilog". It's analog, yet it syncs (like a clock) on "green".

    Yeah. If anyone in here uses HDMI ever, your monopricecables or whatever Brand X cable will do just fine. Component is another story. At 480i/p it doesn't matter as much but at 720p/1080i the quality of cables can make a significant difference.

    Analog signals = cable makes a difference.
    Digital signals = cable quality makes no difference.

    So, for your S/PDIF and TosLink (Coaxial and Optical) interfaces for audio, respectively, cheap cables work for, too since they're digital. Coaxial MAY cut out, if there's noise in the environment (electrical noise, not screaming!). Digital = all or nothing!

    If you have component, just use this for motivation: the textures will all come through clearest on component.

    On the 720P 3LCD HDTV I have the Wii connected to, the component cables make a HUGE difference. Of course, that's comparing de-interlaced (by the TV) 480i scaled to 720p vs progressive 480p scaled to 720p.

    Amazon looks like they have component cables from a variety of vendors. I see Nintendo and MadCatz at least. I haven't clicked on them, so I can't guarantee they actually have them.

    Just search for "Wii Component Cables" (without quotes).

    I just got the cable in the mail and I moved my Wii to the 27" tv, and I gotta say, it looks tight.

    I dont really have any graphically intense games--Super Monkey Ball, Far Cry Vengeance (yuk), Elebits--but even on Monkey Ball the edges of the environment were coming out much sharper, and everything was much more crisp than with the composite cables. And on top of that, the colors looked much better than before. And this was on my 480i tube.

    So anyone who has a component connection on their tv, even if the tv only displays 480i, should get the cables. For $30, there is no excuse not to. Seriously. It looks that much better.

    Not really, it might not be true, but I believe, (like somebody else here said, the message below this one), that HDMI is digital while component is analog, so since HDMI is digital, itís better, not to mention, like I said in my last post, HDMI is DVI in disguise, just a smaller connector and an added audio line so you donít need to send an audio dedicated line, component is easy too, I mean if you canít color code, go back to kindergarten

    Ah, but there is much of a benefit. Even in 480i it looks infinitely better than the composite connection. Seriously, I tested it out like a few hours ago. Its a big difference.
