    how to fix getting stuck in 480p mode when you cannot see.

    All you do is reinsert the regular composite (red, white, yellow) cables back into the wii and reset it. then it will go back into 480i mode. if your tv does not have 480p capability the screen will go out when you switch to that mode. when this happens refer to what i said above.

    why would my tv have component input if it didn't support 480p though?

    Because the component cable splits up the signal, it doesn't necessarily mean that your tv can display in progressive scan mode.

    What would be the point in splitting up the signal? What good does that do if the tv can't display it?

    well component still looks better even at 480i (interlaced scan). and it is still considered medium-high def. however at 480p(progressive scan) it will look even better. from what i understand 480i scans things such as colors one at a time, yet in 480p is scans the colors all at once, therefore giving you even more of a clear picture and definition. the separation of colors into the 3 main colors of the spectrum isnt to add graphics so much as it is to add clarity and definition. so even at 480i component still murders composite. and some tv's that have component also have progressive scan ability. all of your lcd tvs will have progressive, however if you have a flat screen tube tv, then unless it is a edtv(extended definition) then it will not have progressive scan capability. but the difference between 480i and 480p is there but not huge.
