    Yet Another Component Cables Thread

    Yes, I know what your thinking, another component cables thread.

    I have a 42" Sony Grand Wega.

    I'm using Channel 7 for my example here. I'm sure Australian's will know what I am talking about here. '7 Digital' gives its resolution as SD while '7 SD' gives its resolution as 576p. I'm guessing that 7 Digital's resolution is 480p.

    I like arty, cartoony graphics. I think that the whole realism thing is defeating the purpose of a video game. Will the component cables make the graphics in games like Wii Sports and Rayman Raving Rabbids better? By better I mean brighter, smoother and crisper.

    I don't mean to be rude by saying this, but a lot of threads about component cables have wishy-washy answers. Can someone please give an imformed answer.

    Thanks

    Yes. See for yourself:

    gamespot cable comparo

    I have them and even on my TV that does not support progressive input, meaning I'm still using 480i, the difference is like night and day (ok maybe more like dawn and midday..).

    Hey Willy,

    Fellow aussie here. I play my Wii on a 42" Samsung plasma. Using the cables that came with the Wii, my games look soft and tiny bit blurry, if you know what i mean. Not bad blurry, just coz it's on a big TV blurry.

    After buying the component cables, the pics are clearer, crisper, and you can see straight lines. For e.g. Wii Bowling the lanes are crisper and the edges of the lanes have a definte staright crisp line. You can tell it makes a difference just in Wii Sports. Zelda looks brighter, crisper, etc. I recommend them highly. I took a gamble coz i wasn't sure if the difference was worth $47 (JB Hi-Fi). Go get em.

    Based on what you just said, I would have to assume that you kind of already knew the answer to your own question.

    Wtf else would be the point to 480p if it wasn't for clearer smoother graphics.

    I just didn't really want jagged lines with component cables.

    That is what I meant with clearer, smoother graphics.

    Component cables fix about everything but jaggies...
    you'll see smooth, bright, crisp textures and colors

    but because of that jaggies actualy become more noticable...


    480i pretty much blurs everything and hides both good-looking textures and bad jaggies... component cables will unmask both


    this is just what I've seen on my 60"

    the "jaggies" are going to be there regardless, it's just a part of the graphics.

    Well obviously if shit is blurry you aren't going to see anything. So yes, making the picture clearer is naturally going to make the jaggies more visible.
