First of all I'm new to these kind of cables and Im not that great with technology. I know what AV cables are and have been using those for ages. I recently picked up a nintendo wii with some component cables and I want a good picture on it with my HDTV 32' tv. So heres the part I don't understand. When I go to screen resolution I have a choice between 480i and 480p so Im guessing I go with 480p which is hdtv, but it splits my tv screen in half. Therefore I have to stay with 480i. Im I doing something wrong? I cant tell the difference between av cables and component cables. I think I'm doomed with all this new technology.
