    yes, you will get an improvement, but wont make the most of the component cables without a tv that can display 480p

    component cables are definitely worth picking up, even if you don't have a fancy HDTV. I bought myself a set of Psyclone Component Cables (same ones I use in my Xbox and Xbox 360) and they make the colors look so crisp and clear. They were $59.99 and extremely worth it.

    So bottom line is if you don't have an HDTV then you don't need Component Cables right? And if you do have one make sure its a decent or high quality HDTV? Where does all this plasma, cell stuff come into play? This technology stuff really confuses me...:scared:

    Bottom line is, if you have a HDTV then by all means get component cables as they will noticably enhance the picture quality. However if you also have a standard tv and are aware that it can produce 480p then yes you can also get component cables and notice a slight increase in picture quality.

    You don't have component inputs to your TV. Go return the component cables.

    Seems like your TV is not compatible with component video signals. Sorry

    phew..

    damn hidden doors.

    anyway you should see a difference in quality straight away, then more when you set the wii to output 480p (in the wii settings)

    after getting home last night i went straight to the wii, plugged it all in, and such an amazing difference! i think for anyone with an HDTV they need to invest in these cables, in comparison i would say the old picture looked horrible. (only in comparison)
