    well if you wanna be technical, youre 480p 27 inch tv is considered an edtv. i think the thing you really have to think about is if youre willing to spend a few couple bucks to get a bit of improvement on the wii's graphics. it's not gonna be that drastic but the details on the graphics will be a little sharper and the colors better.

    480p is not HD on any size TV.

    It's SDTV, or, to be technical, EDTV, or "enhanced definition."

    Basically the middle ground between SDTV and HDTV.

    And yes, the component cable is worth it. You'll see a big difference in some games. Namely Mario Galaxy, Brawl, and, as I've noticed, Resident Evil 4.

    However, I've found that Prince of Persia and NFS Carbon still look pretty "composite-y."

    And of course, if you don't own an HDTV, don't bother with the component cable, because only HDTVs support progressive scan.

    That gamespot link is great. Good comparisons.

    The component cable really does make some games look a lot more crisp. The Zelda screenshots are great evidence.

    Yea I only knew my TV was an HDTV because it says it clearly on the front of it. Under it is 1080i. Not sure what that means, I just know my TV is HD.

    A 1080i HDTV means it can display resolutions:

    -480i
    -480p
    -720i
    -720p
    -1080i

    But not 1080p.

    In other words, Wii should look pretty damn good on it.

    Wii only uses 480i by default, though...

    Doesn't that mean his/her TV is COMPATIBLE with 1080i?
    If you want to add me in Brawl, PM me that you're going to (and include your brawl name and friend code). Also, PM me if you delete me, so I can delete your name, too. I need space, ya know.

    For anyone who added me in Brawl and deleted me because it still said "Awaiting Registration", please re-add me. It just means we both haven't been online at the same time.

    before anyone goes off buying one, you may want to check out this review of a generic wii component cable: http://www.expotv.com/Nintendo-Wii-C...able-f/35-18XR

    he says his $6 generic cable is THE SAME as his nintendo-brand, $30 cable!!!

    The Wii uses 480i with composite cables, but it uses 480p with component cables.

    No he doesn't.

    He says they look exactly the same. But obviously one cost $24 less.
