    Hi, quick question. I have a 32" non-HD CRT TV, with my Wii hooked up to it. This TV also has component inputs (red, blue, green), and I was wondering if I bought component cables for my Wii, would it make any visual difference at all? Thanks!

    Difference compared to what? RCA A/V line-in (composite) cables? Sure. S-Video? Not so big a difference, but you might notice.

    Right now I'm using the yellow, red and white cables.

    That's composite. Either S-Video or component should be noticeably better, with component having a slight edge over S-video (but not one that tends to be overly-apparent with standard-definition resolutions).
