    Did you set your Wii to 480p in Wii Settings?

    It's becuase the tv is LCD. On your tv settings make the display a little smaller. It's probably set at widescreen.

    I don't think it matters if your tv is set up to 720p and there is no reason for your Wii not to let you set to 480p.

    Okay, maybe you do need to set your tv resolution. Check out the user manual, it should tell you how to do this. If your tv was sending the proper signal to your Wii it should allow you to set to 480p. You do have component cables right?

    720p is better, but the Wii is only capable of displaying 480p. This could possibly be your problem.

    It may not be possible, but if so it would be in your manual for the tv. Having it set to 720p shouldn't be the problem, but what puzzles me is the fact that your Wii doesn't let you change the setting to 480p. As long as you have component cables and a tv cable of displaying 480p it should let you. I JUST THOUGHT OF SOMETHING...MAKE SURE YOU HAVE THE CABLES ON THE BACK OF YOUR TV CONNECTED TO THE PROPER SOCKETS, I HAD TO PLAY WITH MINE A BIT.

    Can you find out what the wire goes to or what it's called? And for example on the component cables, make sure the red and orange colors aren't mixed, etc. Maybe give Nintendo a call tommorrow, they probably wouldn't mind helping you with this.

    You need the high definition component cables before you can select the 480p.

    Hey, there's another way that the Wii Remote could lag too, you know!
    What you're saying sounds correct, but sometimes if a bright light is pointing at the Wii remote, etc, then it becomes difficult to move and stuff. The sun sometimes affects my movement of the remote on screen.

    What brand tv did you buy. Some brand of LCD's don't have very good motion stabilizers in them. That would cause your problem.

    This response seems to be getting burried in other ones, but he's right. This is why the Wii won't let you select 480p as a display option.



    I have no idea if this will affect your movement lag though.

    Some TVs have a lot of additional signal processing that goes on internally that can cause the screen to lag behind what is being sent to it. Some TV's have a game mode (possibly called something else depending on tv brands) that shuts off most of this extra signal processing in order to keep it in sync with the game)
