Gee seems this one caused some good input!
Ok, i have a 32in Philips HD ready blah blah lcd TV. I was using the standard cables that came wtih the Wii.
I have bought some off the shelf ebay HD cables, dont know if they are component cables etc as mentioned above. I will give an honest opinion if the £15 spent was worthile - i suspect it wont be, but at least i will of freed up a connection slot at the back of my TV for my video cam, so its not all bad!
