First of all I am a TV noob. The only things I know well are stuff related to computers and such.
I'm about to sell my 15 year old big CRT TV to buy an LCD HDTV from LG. The model is LG 32LC3R - LCD TV (720p display format). It has a resolution of 1366 x 768 and 32'', image ratio of 16:9.
I would like to know, since the Wii displays at an inferior display format (480p), what will happen to the image and what will I need for the image to display properly?:
- 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?
- What are the composite cables and component cables everyone is talking about? What's their function and what's the difference between them?
Thanks for taking your time to answer these probably silly questions but I just want to be sure before I go out and buy a new TV!
