Wii component cable questions

6 replies
Found 2nd May 2009
Hi i have a 50" plasma and the wii graphics look quite lame on it with a lot of jaggies.

I was wondering if the members could answer a few questions.

1) Should i invest in a component cable to improve graphics? Is this the best cable to get?
2) Does it matter much whether the cable has silver connections or gold connections.
3)Also which is the best cable to get and the cheapest price available and does quality differ much between the highest priced cables and the lowest priced cables ( as i know it doesn't matter for hdmi cables)

Thanks

Is the official cable gold plated or silver plated?

Also is it a big difference in picture quality?

sharper, brighter,smoother. not sure on being plated at all tbh.

Big difference in picture. For example, I couldn't play Medal of Honor on the original RGB cable as the image was too dark on when inside buildings, but with a component cable the image and colour are much clearer.

Couldn't tell you the type, but it wasn't a cheapie.

A quick search shows you can get an official cable for less than £17: directfoto.co.uk/sho…spx

You might get it cheaper with a bit more effort looking.
