I just got my Component cables in the mail (3rd party, ordered online) and I set them up correctly, I checked for about 10 minutes, and my problem is this... They are pretty nice 3rd party ones, look pretty much the same as the Intec ones except these have a white mesh sleeve and gold plated connectors. Everything is super bright on the Wii Menu. I mean, it's so bright that it is hard to see everything, the fine lines are almost washed out. I googled this issue and found 2 posts on this very board: http://www.wiichat.com/nintendo-wii-hardware/10791-screen-too-bright-component-cables.html http://www.wiichat.com/nintendo-wii-hardware/12660-component-cable-too-bright.html --- Now I am going to try to get a refund for the cables and want to know if I will have any luck with another brand of cables (either Nintendo or other 3rd party, ie Intec/Mad Catz) I'd hate to buy another set of cables and then find out that they are worthless too. If not, then perhaps this is just a weird glitch with the Wii on certain TV's? I'm using a 40" Polaroid 720P HDTV LCD... Any help would be appreciated. I was wondering if anyone had solved this issue or determined why many people are having this problem. Thanks for your help.
