I'm seconding that question - how does this differ from the standard item which ever Wii comes with??

Every console has 3rd party cables available. No-one said this one was different or special...just a good price.

in order of picture quality.

worst: composite (which comes with wii)
then: rgb scart
then: component

Doesn't the wii come with (or used to come with) a composite scart.

Don't know about the poundland ones, but the ones in the hmv sale (instore) were RGB scart leads, which do improve the picture quality, making the picture sharper.

amazon.co.uk/pro…s=1

A "proper" scart cable has a better picture quality than RBG cables plugged into a SCART block.

Saying that though, i bought an RF cable from Game for the Wii for 50p - picture quality was a lot better than I expected!

These are the same price instore at some branches of HMV.

They also have the PS3 versions :thumbsup:

Wii doesn't output RGB.

Best you'll do with a Wii is component video, though it supports S-Video as well.
This lead looks like it doesn't do S-Video and what it certainly doesn't offer component connectivity. So it's almost a pointless cable unless you've lost your original.

Also, the Wii outputs a higher resolution in component mode, so get the proper cable, setup your Wii to output component and checkout the difference. It's a LOT.

(Edited for grammar)

anyone know the best/ cheapest place for a component cable? i saw these in pound land over the weekend but thought i should go component

Going on personal experience we tried a few 3rd party scart leads and they were carp.

Ended up buying an official one and it works perfectly.

Is this a HD Scart? I bought a HD scart of ebay for £2.50 - and the picture is so much better. Much sharper.

No such thing as an 'HD Scart'

Currently, HD pictures are delivered to a TV by the following methods:

HDMI - High Definition Media Interface. The 'normal' method used by a Sky Box, PS3 etc...

DVI - More common on devices used as PC monitors but some older TV's have them

Component - That's a YUV signal, normally carried by three RCA/Phono plugs. I think X-Box 360 offers this as an HD output. It's also how the Wii mentioned here connects for best picture, but Wii isn't full HD.

RGB - Technically possible but not found on any consumer devices that I'm aware of. You *could* shove RGB HD up a SCART lead, but manufacturers don't.

SDI - That's Serial Digital Interface. A professional standard producing fabbo images. You don't see it on domestic kit though. It uses a BNC connector normally.

I'm sure there are other ways, but if someone tries to sell you a 'HD SCART' walk away.

I'm assuming you can set up your Wii to output component through it's settings?

Yes you can.

With a component cable attached, the '480p' option will become available in the settings (it's greyed-out otherwise). This isn't "higher resolution" as some people have said - it's just progressive-scan (rather than interlaced) so the picture will be more 'solid' and less flickery (if that's even an issue in this day-and-age!)

Oh - some games don't work in 480p ofc. - so check before you play etc. etc.

As for this cable - anyone care to confirm it's an RGB SCART cable and not just a composite cable with a wired SCART instead of the 3 phonos?

Never use the PS3 through an SD TV if you can help it, it's terrible.

Couldn't find these in the Gala store. :-(
