    Hey all,

    I have said news to say that the wii looks like utter crap on my 1360x786 resolution hdtv. Yes i used component cables, yes i switch the resolution to 480i and yes i switched to the widescreen format. Also, i want to add that my old 1980 sony projection tv does a better job in terms of graphics for the wii. Is there anything else i can do to get better graphics on my hdtv? oh yea i also switch to 1:1 aspect ratio and the graphics look great but i get a 7" screen.

    your "said" news is no news. We've known this for quite some time. The wii isn't really built for HD.

    my LG 42" lcd displays the wii nicely. 480p with widescreen make it more clear compared to the regular composite cables.

    if you want the best display connection, use the component monster cables for the wii.

    i use blaze component cables with my lg 44" rear projection hd

    looks ok - bit better in certain games like prince of persia


    if u play the wii for graphics looking pretty and not fun then u bought the wrong console - get a ps3 or 360

    some of the new tv support 720p and higher but not support 480i or 480p , check with your tv setup manual too.
