    Better graphics on CRT then HDTV (480i)

    So... when ever I play the Wii on a CRT TV the games look much nicer then on my 60"W HDTV


    I'm not running 480p yet but still the CRT looks a good bit better...


    Is this normal or should I be concerned?

    Just depends. For example let's say you have a Sony Bravia (which I have) and then you play it at your friends house and he has a LG it may not look as sharp because of the make and other various reasons. Some are TV adjustments, cables used (component, composite, S-Video, HDMI, etc.) and mainly the quality of the screen.

    If you are not using component cables do so then you might want to check your TV settings. I notice if you use the Edge Enhance 2 (or whatever it's called. I'm not getting up that TV is in the other room) on WEGA TV's it is too much sometimes, so I set it to Edge Enhance 1. Yes, using the progressive scan is always better then interlaced. So set it to 480p as opposed to 480i.

    I hoped this helped you out some.

    Wii HD

    You will need to get the Wii HD component cables for your HD LCD TV. I was at the Nintendo World store and you could see a big difference between the TVs that had the Wii set up using the standard Audio/Video cables vs. the component cables.

    hey

    I will quote something I posted in another thread.

    Assuming your HDTV is LCD based, even if you do get Component cables, and run at 480p, it will still be displayed at 640x480, which I doubt would be your HDTV native resolution. So yea, I don't think the Nintendo Wii graphics will look the very best they can be on most LCD based displays .

    Anyhows, I think if I was ever to get a new television, I'd look for a CRT based EDTV or HDTV.

    Here it is
    Sony KDF-E60A20 Specs. Projection TVs Specifications.


    My point is not that it'll look better with componenet cables but that it looks a good bit worst now then a normal 15 year old TV
    Doesn't that seem to be a problem>.<

    Is there some settings I should try messing with?


    BTW: TV is on "full" mode and the Wii is on 16:9

    Well here's your problem:

    If you change your TV to 16:9 it will put the Wii and TV in 16:9. This way the picture will not be stretched.

    Check sharpness, brightness and over all clarity.

    CRT TV's are better at displaying non-native resolutions than LCD ones, that's probably why it looked better.

    In your wii settings you have to choose between widescreen and normal.

    I plan on getting a 42" 720p LCD next year. A 42" one should cost $500 by next Christmas. A 1080 is pointless because most cable companies don't offer that resolution yet. The Wii will look great on that TV.

    hey

    @Wiiaretheworld: I think the Nintendo Wii would look better on a CRT based EDTV/HDTV, as for reasons I have already mentioned above.
