ive got a HD TV hooked up to me wii and was just wondering is there any point buying the HDMI cable
has anyone tried it, does it make much difference and where can you get it cheapest
This topic is locked from further discussion.
the wii does not support HDMI, there might be a 3rd party seller that might make a converter from the wii out to hdmi (althought im not sure anyone makes it) but it would be pointless. you might be looking at the component cable for the wii.
anyways if you did see a hdmi cord for the wii it would be completely useless since the wii only supports up to 480p in which the component cables are be best option you can get.
the component cable is very good to get rid of the "jaggies" on your screen to create smoother edges. its recommeded you get this for your hdtv.
even though i didnt get the component cables, if i hook my wii up to my plasma it looks pretty ugly
the component cables are the red green blue ones and you can get it here
That poster is incorrect, the component cables DO NOT get rid of the "jagiies" they actually increase with it.
With the component cables you see the true image from the Wii and right now there's some "jaggies". THe cables enhance EVERYTHING, that means the bad's just as enhanced as the good.
They're still totally worth it but don't freak when you see that images are a bit rougher.
In regards to jaysonguy... Not true, you have no idea what you are talking about! I have an hdtv and I have used my wii with and without the component cables. the image is much clearer and sharper with the component video than the standard av cables that come with the wii. Zelda looks amazing with the better picture, and the wii is actually capable of putting out a decent picture, even if it is not hi def, and the standard cables only make the picture blurrier (One thing to remember, you need to set the wii to use 480p output after you change cables, and that will setthe wii for optimum picture performance, otherwise you will not see much of a difference).meplaywii
OK, well this is going to be awkward yet fun lol
The guy said is the a way to reduce jaggies, I said no because the component cables sharpen the picture. You bump this thread to say I'm wrong because component cables sharpen the picture.
So I'm wrong and to tell me I'm wrong you point out that I'm right?
