    s-video

    hi, I'm wondering something. If you buy an s video cable and use it can you do the EDTV setting. Just wondering so that i know if I should get it or not.

    Are you asking about the display settings? I am not sure because I do not have the S-Video Cable. I am using the Component Cable. I think that is the only way you can get the 480P setting. So you answer is No.

    While technically possible I have never seen a consumer device capable of progressive over svideo so I say no.

    I have the S-video cable (although not the Nintendo one). No, you can't choose 480p with it.

    K thanks. One more question, does it actually help?

    Svideo is better, i have my dvd player hooked up to my only component spot on my tv. So component cables are out for the wii (def not changing back and forth, that'd drive my wife mad) It's a CRT 27 inch normal standard tv. Should I just go with SVIDEO and call it a day so I won't have to switch back and forth. My wife is already mad that I have this monstrous tv in our very very small room. Would Svideo be worth it, or should I not even bother because it won't make THAT much of a difference?
    I HACKED THE WII. MY COLLECTION IS LARGE. I OWN ALL. EMULATORS ARE MY FRIEND.

    S-video output is only marginally better than the composite. If you have component input on your TV, definitely go for it. If something is already taking the component input, get a switch box. I am waiting for my component cable to hook up to my projector, so I am using the S-video for the time being and keep the composite for the standard TV.

    Thats not exactly right. Progressive component is definitely the best BUT -

    SVideo is significantly better than composite.

    Svideo compared to interlaced component is minor

    [/u]The luma portion of the picture on Svideo and interlaced component should be equal![/u]
    The overwhelming majority of the picture information (95%?) is in the black and white portion (luma).
