To Yosh64: it does not. I have seen the Wii on a 40" HD LCD TV... it looks MUCH better than a CRT. You just have to know how to set it up properly.
This is actually the right answer. CRTs are currently the only display technology that can natively display interlaced images. LCDs and others actually have to de-interlace the image and apply digital filters to recombine a 60 fps interlaced picture into a 30 fps 'progressive' image. This is mainly due to the afterglow of the phosphor in a CRT.Originally Posted by Evi1d33d
In a nutshell, if you have an LCD HDTV (or DLP or Plasma) you should invest in some component cables at the first opportunity.
@ Wiiaretheworld - first of all, I doubt you're comparing the 40" LCD HDTV to a 40" CRT HDTV. So, if the HDTV you're on upscales the image automatically - which it should because 480 lines on a 40" TV would look atrocious - then you're comparing an upscaled version on a larger screen to an unscaled version on a smaller screen. The spatial resolution on the LCD is going to beat that of the CRT, so you will notice a difference in picture.
