Fraction of the price of the official Nintendo one

hmm... wonder why

Good price but these only really make you realise how **** the wii graphics are.

is there a big difference between component and the standard av cables that come with the wii?

yes

Its worth spending more when you are dealing with an analouge signal though because its greatly affected by cable quality and shielding from interferences.

i know, i just laugh because most people are on 1080p now

There is a HUGE difference in pic quality with a component lead, can't understand why you wouldn't want one TBH.......

Missing out on what exactly? Pretty much the only thing that outputs 1080 is Blueray. Things like Sky hd, xbox games etc etc etc are all 720 sources.

im quite happy with my 720 ta very much!

It doesnt matter if you have a 1080 tv you cant make it better than 480 coz that what it outputs but you TV will step it up anyway

if your laughing because the wii only has 480 well that another story but this will make your scart / composite pic look like ***** - dont think , buy :thumbsup:

Blu-Ray - Max output 1080p
Playstation 3 - Max output 1080p
Sky HD - Max output 1080i

you see?

Just wanna point out that the wii looks fine through scart on any older (CRT) tvs, but look absolutely bloody awful without an RGB cable. Leads like this are well worth it if youve got a compatible telly.

Playstation 3 is Blu ray
and i stand corrected on Sky HD it was 1080p it doesnt broadcast in.

but that is still only 2 formats that run in 1080 i or p
1080 is just overkill at the moment and you can only really judge the difference if you are sitting a couple of meters from the tv, and if you are sitting that close you have problems.

Just hooked up the component cable to my Wii. I didn't think it would make that much difference but wow!!

1080 is overkill? Blu Ray sales are up 400% and their prices are falling fast.

I agree somewhat with jetpac - the human eye cannot disearn the difference unless you are litterally feet away from your TV . After 10 feet the difference is neglegable.
We have a 720 panasonic and its way better than my mates 1080 sonys and samsungs - its not all about the pixels

It does come into its own with supersized TVs but who has the money for 60" plus sets or the houses to put them in

Going back on TOPIC...

I ran my wii for about 1 month then got the cable.... the difference is massive!

(make sure you go into the settings on the wii and set to 480p)

Rick

Good price for this cable, i got mine from Amazon for £5 delivered not sure if they still have them but worth a look if you want one quicker.

Because it shows up how bad the quality of 480p is, resident evil 4 looks fine with the scart, using the component it looks dreadful, with jagged lines everywhere.

Ok guys need a little advice not too clued up about these things. I've lost the original cable that came with the wii. I use to simply plug the red, yellow and white cables directly into the TV. Is this cable a replacement or do I need a HD TV to use these?
Sorry for the silly question !!

The PS3 Outputs at 1080p60 and a few games are native 1080p like GT5 Prologue and Virtua Tennis 3.

The XBox 360 Outputs at 1080p60 also. Games vary in resolution but all scale beautifully to 1080p due to excellent anti-aliasing.

The Sky Box HD Outputs at 1080i50. Nearly all HD Channels broadcast native in 1080i

So there!

You need a component socket and it doesn't have to be a hdtv. There are 3 wires for video (red, blue, green) and 2 for audio (red and white). If you can see them then this cable will be fine.

Btw hasn't it always been this price at dealextreme? I think I paid the same a few years back.

People dont buy the Wii for the graphics, obvious due to the sales. So why exactly does the 1080p matter? COmponent cables will however sharpen up the image which is alwasy good.

I am veering to this way of thinking myself. The component cable makes the visuals a lot crisper, but at the same time, this does expose the jaggies, which have always been there, but have been blurred out (probably for the best). I am running with this cable at the moment, but am seriously considering going back to my SCART.

Sales doesn't mean its a better console, it means it has a more wide spread market (familys)

I do have a problem. A smaller than ideal room. No easy fix to that.

But frankly speaking, it doesn't matter. I find pointless elitism stupid. If you like your 720p, great!

I enjoy my 1080p projector. BD materials looks fantastic on it. No buyer remorse whatsoever.

Wii is great fun on a very big screen, though it obviously do not not as good graphics wise as a PS3/Xbox360.

Question 1: Technology wise, what exactly is the difference between a 'component' AV cable, and the AV cable bundled with the Wii?

Question 2: Are component cables created more or less equal, or would the official Wii cable be better?

Sales doesn't necessarily, but it is the better console.
