    personally i disagree. i don't think buying 3rd party would or even possibly damage your system (unless it's from the dollar store, but they don't carry wii cables anyhow). if anything 3rd part cables are a savier to wii user as there were many stories of official Nintedo cable shortages. and if anything should happen to your wii due to non official cables (which i highly doubt would happen), i personally don't think Nintendo would refuse to warrant your wii (who's to blame for shortages and customers running out and buying 3rd party cables).

    long story short being on and off the electronics industry for the past 5 years, i can confidently say 3rd party A/V cables won't damage your system...

    Bull. That is not what you said. You told the guy that he "don't know what you are talking about" and that the component cable was better than the RGB SCART connection he was using. Component cables and 480p are not exclusive. The Wii component video is NOT RGB.

    Again wrong. Component video uses a color difference formula to display the picture. The "green" cable carries the black and white picture (luma). This is VERY similar to Svideo. The difference comes in that three seperate channels of color can be carried over two cables. One has the all the blue information minus the chroma while the other carries all the red information minus chroma. A formula is applied to these three signals to obtain 4 seperate channels of picture + red + green + blue.

    Do you think Nintendo makes their own cables? You are telling the person to purchase cables from whatever no name cable manufacture when you say "buy Nintendo". MadCatz has been making accessories for YEARS and I would trust their product over most others - they sell a 20$ component cable. Nyko is another company selling the 20$ components and they also happen to be the one that makes controller charge station and wireless sensor bar most of users on this forum buy.

    Not quite. 480p is EDTV not HDTV. The lowest resolution to be considered HD is a vertical resolution of 720 lines.

    Again wrong. Component video uses a color difference formula to display the 4 components of the picture over three wires. The "green" cable carries the black and white picture (luma) plus the sync. This is exactly the same as Svideo. The difference comes in that three seperate channels of color can be carried over the other two cables. One has the all the blue information minus the chroma while the other carries all the red information minus chroma. A formula is applied to these three signals to obtain 4 seperate channels of picture + red + green + blue.

    Do you think Nintendo makes their own cables? You are telling the person to purchase cables from whatever no name cable manufacture Nintendo has a contract with at the moment.

    Tehnically 480p is EDTV. Some say its part of the HDTV standard but in reality the lowest resolution HDTV displays are able to display at least 720p or 1080i.

    i just got my component cable and couldn't see a significant difference. not that it really mattered because i only paid $3.51 (including tax and shipping) for the cable, but i just want to know if i'm possibly missing some setting adjustment on my hardware for either the wii or my tv (sony 50" lcd proj).
    How old would you be if you didn't know how old you are?

    it's in the manual there's a setting that allows you to change resolution settings from 480i to 480p, assuming your television does support progressive scan...

    Edit: my bad LCD, well it's in settings...

    AllSport,

    Go to the Wii settings.

    You need to change both :

    1) widescreen settings (16:9)

    2) TV resolution (480P)

    Now go to the TV and change the "aspect ratio" for your Wii video input in to "FULL"

    There should be a BIG difference

    Sweet - since i have these cables i can also plug my ps2 in the composite parts. I don't need my Commtel Scart Video Unit anymore

    So i hooked them up, and wow! i have not played any games yet but its already looking amazing. No more thin lines moving when i look at the light blue on the screen. I'm going to fire up the internet channel and see how the text looks.

    EDIT: Wow the text is amazing, its so much clearer
