    Hd TV's also have standard cable support, are those HD too? Since true HD is obtained through HDMI, everything else is just upscaled. Thats why 360 added HDMI cause only HDMI is HD.

    Component, VGA, and DVI output HD. "True HD" is just some bullshit Sony uses to make the PS3 sound better.

    Well, it makes me feel better when i tell my friends "Whats that? Component? Oh, well im just using TRUE HD!" besides, if it wasnt, microsoft wouldntve released the elite with just HDMI added. I think there may be some truth to it.

    Dammit some of you are dense

    I never said only HDMI was HD
    I never said only digital was HD
    I never said component wasn't HD.

    The minimum specification for a signal to be considered HD is 720p.

    Thanks. Goodbye. I win.

    Not really. You said they aren't HD cables which isn't true. Even though the Wii can't output in HD the cables still can.

    Ciper is right, the Wii can only support 480p. Give it whatever 4 letter abbreiviation you want, it makes no difference.

    THE WII IS NOT HDMI. End.

    It will also depend on what size and spec Television you're playing on. It's easier to notice on a 40inch telly than on a 28inch.

    Edit: Ill find a link to the ITU-R BT.709-5 that doesnt require a login. This is THE document that EVERYONE conforms to regarding HTDV specifications.

    Stubborn. For a cable to be HD it has to be designed to handle a certain frequency response. This is why many people don't use the component switchers built into their receivers! Do a google search for component video switchers and you will see what I mean.

    A great analogy. Lamp power cord may work on my speakers but that doesnt mean it will be THX certified.


    Care to tell me what device I can connect the Wii video connector to that will generate the HD signal?

    You could cut off the end with the Wii connector and attach RCA connectors. Also some have multiple connectors, such as mine which has a Wii, PS3 and 360 connector.

    Using your logic I could call the Wii component cables

    Quadaphonic record player interconnects
    Phonograph to amplifier cables
    SPDIF Digital audio cables
    NES RF adapter cables
    RGB cables
    The phono plug has been around for over 60 years.

    The transport does not define the payload. It would be like a post I recently saw on the forum that said "torrents are illegal"

    You might not be able to see it but cut cables and those "multi system" cables do not meet the need for frequency response or the manufacturers specification for connections to the system. There is a reason you never see these type of splitters in any equipment primarily owned by those people who don't mind to spend the money to do something right.

    You don't understand that the transport does not define the payload.
    Ok, it doesn't matter what you can connect them too, component cables are still capable of transmitting an HD signal.
