    When you set your Wii to widescreen, it should squish the image down, so it can be stretched to 16:9 by your TV without any distortion. If your screen isn't pulling it to 16:9 (say it's pulling it to 2:1 or some crazy number), then it will look distorted no matter what.

    I'd take a picture of games in 16:9 and 4:3 to show you, but we just moved, and I have no idea where our digital camera is. I'm too lazy to go look for it

    Turns out my wii was displaying correctly. Just needed to set my Sony TV to stretch it to 16:9 (I guess Sony assumes that anything coming into the composite slots is 4:3 by default). If you have Zelda there is a display check screen with some boxes - you are supposed to make sure they are square to ensure you have the aspect ratio right.

    not all games display in 16:9 so your tv may be set to 16:9 but if the game doesnt support it then no dice

    Wii doesreport to TV that signal is 4:3 in 16:9 mode (at least in my case) using both composite and component cables in both 480i and 480p modes. I checked some games (like Madden) actually recognize settings on the Wii and adjusts their settings accordingly but Wii still doesn't tell a TV proper ratio. I know for sure setting proper ratio on TV can be reported properly since my DVD player does it. But for now I'm stuck with this button on remote every time I change video input to Wii. I guess it's a Wii bug and I hope it can be fixed in next firmware. Some games like Trauma: SO and WarioWare seem to run in 4:3 since they look streched on the wide screen. I found it annoyning that there is no indication of screen ratio on the game box or in the manual either (similar to DVD). I haven't found reliable way to tell if game supports widescreen yet.
