Should i buy em? Do they make much difference cos i got a HDTV so i wondered if i should buy some?
I thought the Wii wasnt HD?? Whats the point of having HD cables if the picture isnt HD. You need an HD picture coming from your source (Wii) to transfer a HD quality picture thru your HD cables in order to recieve an HD picture on your HDTV. Makes sense?
ye. so its not worth it?
Well you could get progressive scan with the component cables.
would that give a better picture quality. But if it doesnt do much is it worth it?
It would increase the quality but not by a huge amount. Its up to you to decide if its worth it.
its def. worth it. it made my zelda experience like 5x better
It looks a whole lot better on my monitor with component as opposed to the default composite. Can't say about regular TVs though. While Wii isn't HDTV, the EDTV is good enough to warrant it I think, not to mention cables aren't all that expensive...
i would go for it
Componet Cables are absolutely worth it.It makes the picture brighter and sharper.It also helps with the sound if you play your game on surround sound.But for sure buy the HD cables for your wii.The Wii has HD capabilities and Nintendo will eventually bring out a chip to run it or it is even possible that a channel download could bring your wii its full power.But the wii does have the power to support HD TV its just a matter of nintendo updating the hardware.
I recently got composite cable for Wii to connect with my 32" LCD TV. It was totally worth it. Not only for the clearer image but for the smoother movement (due to progressive) too.
Get The Cables They Make A Huge Difference
Yes get them. But be sure to get a name brand. dont go too cheap or too expensive on these. You'll notice the difference!!!
i have nothing new to add really, just to confirm that YES you SHOULD BUY THEM!! i bought them with the console, then a week later my component ports had issues in my monitor and i had to switch back to composite fora few days. it was HORRIBLE! I didnt realise how much sharper it was until then. I simply cannot play with composite.
why is everyone saying the Wii isn't HD? 480p IS HD, 480i is not... The Wii can display 480p
note: when you boot your Wii up for the first time go under setup -> screen -> tv resolution and you can choose between standard tv (480i) or EDTV/HDTV 480p
i think there talking about full 1080i hdtv.the wii also has the power to run this aswell,just not up and running yet.
yes get them. no the wii will never be anything more than 480p but there is an obvious difference between the standard cables and component. I actually bought the cables before i got my wii!
I wasn't sure whether or not I wanted to spend the money for component cables...I finally made the decision to give it a shot and I'm very glad I did. It made Zelda in particular a much better experience. If you've got a plasma/lcd/dlp television I would recommend spending the money if you've got it.
hey guys maybe you can help me out. i bought the component cables for my wii and as soon as i switch to the 480p setting my screen goes black and either does not come back on or jumps all over the place.
any ideas why? I have a philips 23" flat TV. its hd ready and has the component hook ups directly in on the back.
I bought the cables used from gamestop they supposedly are genuine Wii cables.
any help would be awesome!
480p is not HD. HD technically starts at 720p (1366x720). Last time someone mensioned component cables there was a big debate whether 480p is high def. Its not debatable its just not HD by definition.
Ill explain the difference in picture between the standard composite cable (480i) and component cable (480p) so you can decide. With 480i the image updates every second line of display per frame at about 60 times per second. With 480p the screen updates all lines of display per frame at about 60 times per second. This requires twice the data or bandwidth and results in a sharper, fuller picture with no black lines on the screen and no flicker.
Although you won't use your tv's resolution to its full potiental, you will be using the progressive technology that your tv was designed for.
