Get an LCD, whichever is in your price range (Vizio's are the best bang for the buck) and the component cables and you will be set.

    Actually it does, considering he asked these two things;

    - Will the image stretch and be blurry because it's being transmitted in a resolution not native to the LCD (or doesn't 480p have a different resolution of 720p)?
    - Will the image be surrounded by a letter-box or a pillar-box?

    That has to do with the aspect ratio.

    Same here. The Nintendo component cables are gold plated while the play-asia ones aren't. Some people say it makes a difference.

    To answer your question. Component Cables give you the highest possible quality for the Wii. It's a big jump over Composite Cables(what comes with the Wii). Here's a comparison(mouse over images for component cable look):

    Don't get gold plated plugs (scart/rca-phono/bnc/anything) unless the sockets are gold plated too. You might initially get a better picture, but the moisture in the atmosphere will soon trigger a chemical reaction called DMC (dissimilar metal corrosion) which will eventually cause a seriously degraded picture.

    DMC happens when two different metals are held against each other for extended periods of time. It is inevitable and unstoppable. You are better off staying with the nickel or chrome plated connectors which don't look as fancy, but will serve you a lot better in the long run.

    As stated though, if your TV/monitor has gold plated receptacles, then go for gold plated plugs.

    Think of it as a computer monitor, a 640x480 image resolution is lower than a 1024x768, right?

    The same works with TVs, the higher the number the bigger the resolution they can handle.

    The "P" o "I" stands for "Progressive" and "Interlaced"

    A Progressive image is better, because each line on the screen will be refreshed (drawn) when you use your TV

    An Interlaced image will only refresh every other line, rendering a less detailed image.

    the wii looks great with the av inputs, just change your wii settings to 16:9 ratio and no problems

    i have component cables on the way and would be glad to give you some feedback after i receive them

    this is a great television set though!
    Hey there could you tell me if the TV has gold plated receptacles or not? Seems like it's important whether the component cable plugs are made of the same metal or not.

    Thanks!
