    Just got my Wii, noticed on the set up menu "screen" that I cannot activate the HD mode even though I have a 52" LCD HD set. Do I need the HD cord for this to work. Right now I have the three jacks connected, but there is a place for the HD cord is that is what is needed.

    Thanks,

    TK

    Unfortunately you can't benefit from the higher resolutions that the wii offers without first purchasing an upgraded cable.

    General consensus (that I've read) is that the official Nintendo component cable is the way to go.

    With such a large screen you might find the result a bit jaggedy though.

    Also the Wii does not do HD, period. The best resolution you can get is 480p (just a small step up from the standard 480i).

    nope, that is not the consensus. the way to go is monoprice or any other normal cable. mine was $8. others have found them for less.

    you will NOT notice a difference between monoprice cables and the overpriced nintendo cables.

    get the cheap ones.
    and yes, you need the component cables to use 480p mode, which is considered ED (enhanced definition).

    I went with monoprice too and it's been great. I think the cable I got was around $4.

    Why do children spell like headless chickens running around on the keyboard?

    BS ALERT!!!!

    You might make $8.50 an hour at Disney. Sweeping the park.

    Not one person, who has a shred of integrity, goes around talking like that and makes any semi-real money. Besides $40k a year is not that much.

    LOL, No hope for some kids these days if that's the way they spell. Even McDonald's need people that can spell better than that.

    Did your mispellings on resume stand out to inquire you a job? Or do you make money as the dancing monkey?

    [video=youtube;CqgPFVG_EPE]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CqgPFVG_EPE[/video]

    If by old you mean people in their late teens early 20s, than certainly this would be a revenge plot against you. Lets face it, with age, we get more than 40k a year and have hot woman who don't sleep with us because we have wrinkles, but because we have a salary that entitles that to us.

    Of course I doubt you are anywhere near 18. If you are, your the biggest joke I have ever seen.

    I can't even decipher this kid's posts. I've always felt that if I expect someone to take the time to read, and perhaps respond to, my comments, then it behooves me to take the time to use the English language properly (the occasional typo excepted) in order to make my post intelligible to the reader. For what it's worth, I work in the practice of law. If you submit a mistake-riddled brief to a judge, you destroy your credibility (and, more importantly, the credibility of your client who's paying you upwards of $500 an hour). That's not a good way to try to continue to make a living!

    Anyway, returning to the original topic, I've never seen fit to buy a component cable for the Wii because I don't think 480p is enough of an improvement over 480i to justify the expense. Eight years ago, back when progressive-scan DVD players were first becoming common and when high-definition (720p and 1080i) broadcasts were still uncommon, I might have felt differently, but now I get impatient with TV broadcasts that aren't in 1080i (I routinely turn off the TV rather than watch 480i baseball), and therefore I don't see much reason to buy the component cable for the Wii.

    I guess I hit the nail on the head with the sweeping the park comment... Get mad? Why would I get mad at your barely above minimum wage job at a Disney Theme park?

    Maybe some day you can put together a logical thought so you can joust with people with more intellect than you are capable of grasping.

    Do yourself a favor and don't respond to anymore posts in this thread because you make yourself look more and more inane.

    I don't know what's worse, a kid making stupid posts or the people jumping on him trying to crush him by using their OH SO SUPERIOR INTELLECT

    both groups are lame enough to waste their time on each other as if anything they say even matters to the other party
