    HDTV - 480p

    Just got a HDTV (Vizio VX37L) - which 3rd party cable to buy to get good 480p ?

    480i looks horrible with jagged edges (Zelda, RE4)

    preferably $15-$20ish

    Thanks!

    HAHAHA that isn't HD. Close, but not quite. Yes, It may look better, because I do have the same HDTV. But you know, the HD consoles look great on it!

    I got the ones from Walmart. Not sure what brand they are, but they work really good. Cost about $20.

    ebay! Find a seller with lots of good feedback and you can normally get your item within a week. Or maybe Amazon.com if you don't like ebay.
