    That happened with my tv when I tried to make it 480p (my tv is an ordinary tube) and it didnt work because the tv could only display 480i. Your pic looks exactly like my tv when i tried to do 480p. Are you sure your tv can do 480p? Some tube tvs have component connections but can't do 480p.

    What type of tv do you have? LCD, Plasma, tube, etc.
    If its tube, you most likely cant do 480p (only some tube tvs can do 480p, its pretty rare actually). But even if you have a tube tv, the component cables make a good difference, even in 480i. Makes everything sharper, better colors, etc.

    No no--it can use component for video, it just can't display in 480p. Nothing to worry about. Component video is the highest quality picture you'll get out of a 480i tube like yours. Trust me its better than using the standard cables.

    But if you really want 480p, the price range is like $250-$1000 for a 480p tv, depending on how big you want it.

    Yeah, in my past experience, anything is better than composite

    Stick with the component. It's better quality than s-video.

    Noooooo! Composite is worse than component and s-video! Just keep the component cables, theyre WAY better.

    Can't you still use the component cables but in 480i mode ?

    Don't know if this is possible but it seems the obvious thing to do.

    I have an old sony WEGA tube TV. it doesnt support 480p technicaly. My tv cheats and when in 16:9 mode it doesnt draw the black bars on top and bottom and instead uses the extra scan lines to draw in a type of progressive mode. Give it a shot. You still have to leave the Wii In 480i however.

    Component Cables create a clearer picture than composite video because all the signals are separated into individual cables. S-video is ....worse. Using them in 480i mode wont improve graphics per say but the image will be sharper and the colors more vibrant.

    Im using a 20" CRT Toshiba TV with component cables in 480i mode btw,

    I'm not sure exactly, but it would definitely be better than using the composite leads, and hopefully it would stop your shaky screen problem.

    It will increase the sharpness and color of the picture. Compared to component, the composites color looks washed out. I recommend them being that they are not that expensive.

    i just tested it out..somehow i think it got worst using component cable....color did seem brighter and more vibrant..but it did not increase the sharpness of picture..the edge looks very rough
