    Hi

    I have a HD TV but my Wii is currently just linked up via the standard cables

    Will runnig it using HD cables make a noticeable difference in pciture quality?

    Thanks

    Most will say yes.

    use the search tutorial for "component cables" or something.

    You have inferior eyes.

    Yes, it makes an amazing difference. I strongly suggest getting the component cables and running your games in progressive.

    Graphics look as good as the other consoles in 1080i... o_O;

    I ran Zelda TP with all of them, standard, svid, component, it cleared some, very little, jags that the others couldnt smooth but not much difference.

    Get a Monster component cable, that thing is badass.

    Component is capable of HD. HD set top boxes use component ... so does HD DVD and BlueRay players...

    HDMI and DVI are just digital, that's all. Digital is NOT the definiton of high definition.

    And? Dont make assumptions. I never used the word digital in my post.
    The Wii does NOT output HD no matter what cables you have attached. 480p is not HD.

    Hd TV's also have standard cable support, are those HD too? Since true HD is obtained through HDMI, everything else is just upscaled. Thats why 360 added HDMI cause only HDMI is HD.

    Component, VGA, and DVI output HD. "True HD" is just some bullshit Sony uses to make the PS3 sound better.

    Well, it makes me feel better when i tell my friends "Whats that? Component? Oh, well im just using TRUE HD!" besides, if it wasnt, microsoft wouldntve released the elite with just HDMI added. I think there may be some truth to it.

    Dammit some of you are dense

    I never said only HDMI was HD
    I never said only digital was HD
    I never said component wasn't HD.

    The minimum specification for a signal to be considered HD is 720p.

    Thanks. Goodbye. I win.

    Not really. You said they aren't HD cables which isn't true. Even though the Wii can't output in HD the cables still can.

    Ciper is right, the Wii can only support 480p. Give it whatever 4 letter abbreiviation you want, it makes no difference.

    THE WII IS NOT HDMI. End.

    It will also depend on what size and spec Television you're playing on. It's easier to notice on a 40inch telly than on a 28inch.

    Edit: Ill find a link to the ITU-R BT.709-5 that doesnt require a login. This is THE document that EVERYONE conforms to regarding HTDV specifications.

    Stubborn. For a cable to be HD it has to be designed to handle a certain frequency response. This is why many people don't use the component switchers built into their receivers! Do a google search for component video switchers and you will see what I mean.

    A great analogy. Lamp power cord may work on my speakers but that doesnt mean it will be THX certified.


    Care to tell me what device I can connect the Wii video connector to that will generate the HD signal?

    You could cut off the end with the Wii connector and attach RCA connectors. Also some have multiple connectors, such as mine which has a Wii, PS3 and 360 connector.

    Using your logic I could call the Wii component cables

    Quadaphonic record player interconnects
    Phonograph to amplifier cables
    SPDIF Digital audio cables
    NES RF adapter cables
    RGB cables
    The phono plug has been around for over 60 years.

    The transport does not define the payload. It would be like a post I recently saw on the forum that said "torrents are illegal"

    You might not be able to see it but cut cables and those "multi system" cables do not meet the need for frequency response or the manufacturers specification for connections to the system. There is a reason you never see these type of splitters in any equipment primarily owned by those people who don't mind to spend the money to do something right.

    Ok, it doesn't matter what you can connect them too, component cables are still capable of transmitting an HD signal.
